Seven Puppies, Two Dogs Rescued from Home After Video Captures Six-Week-Old Kitten on Fire

The Houston SPCA and Harris County Constable Precinct 1 rescued nine dogs, including seven puppies, this afternoon after officials were called to the scene by the disturbing footage of surveillance video showing a kitten engulfed in flames running down the street after being set on fire.

(June 6, 2024) The Houston SPCA and Harris County Constable Precinct 1 rescued nine dogs, including seven puppies, this afternoon after officials were called to the scene by the disturbing footage of surveillance video showing a kitten engulfed in flames running down the street after being set on fire.

Upon arriving at the Houston SPCA hospital this morning, veterinary staff immediately assessed the wounds and trauma of the six-week-old kitten to determine effective treatment. Due to the severity of his burns, internal injuries, and overall weakened state, the Houston SPCA’s trained veterinary staff determined that the best course of action for the kitten was to humanely euthanize.  

A civil seizure warrant was served at a home near the 12,000 block of Drifting Winds where officials say the kitten lived where they discovered nine dogs including seven emaciated puppies.  In a backyard storage shed, several filthy cages held the puppies, along with two dogs who were being kept in a separate wire kennel in the backyard.  The animals had no access to food or water in the Texas heat.

All of the dogs were brought into the care of the Houston SPCA for individualized treatment from staff veterinarians. The investigation is currently ongoing and a hearing for custody of the dogs will be held next week.

Due to the graphic nature of the video, viewer discretion is advised. In the heartbreaking reality of animal cruelty, the Houston SPCA’s efforts are a beacon of light for these rescued animals.
