Owner Cruelly Beats Boxers with Belt

Caught On Video: Dogs are Repeatedly Hit with Belt While Tied Up on Porch

HOUSTON (February 21, 2022) – The Houston SPCA and Harris County Constable Precinct 1 rescued two Boxers this afternoon from a Southeast Houston apartment complex after the owner was caught on video whipping both dogs with a belt while the dogs were tightly restrained. A portion of the second video shows the Boxers struggling from inside a wire crate while the owner continues to strike them with a belt. Both videos show the dogs repeatedly crying out and cowering during the abuse.

“Taking photos and video to report animal cruelty is very useful against those who dare to commit these senseless crimes in public view. It’s critical to call us or report cruelty online because it can save lives”

Adam Reynolds, Chief Cruelty Investigator at the Houston SPCA

“When citizens step up to report cruelty, it helps us enforce the message that animal abuse crimes will not be tolerated in Harris County”

Constable Alan Rosen, Harris County Constable Precinct 1

The dogs are now safely with the Houston SPCA and will be under the care of veterinary staff. The case will be presented before a judge in the coming weeks.

To report animal cruelty, call 713-869-SPCA (7722) or file a report online.
