Animals removed from squalid living conditions

Released by: SPCA of Texas

HUNT COUNTY, TX - The SPCA of Texas along with local authorities, will be removing approximately 30 dogs from a property in Hunt County Friday, October, 15.

The animals have been living inside a feces-filled and urine soaked trailer, with most of the dogs experiencing severe hair loss. Authorities say they were confined to small feces-filled wire cages, with some of the dogs loose inside the trailer.

The SPCA of Texas received an anonymous complaint regarding concerns of animal cruelty and visited the property on October 14th and discovered the animals' living conditions. At that time, they contacted the Hunt County constable, who upon seeing the conditions agreed that the animals should be removed from the property.

The SPCA will transport the animals to the Perry Animal Care Center at 8411 Stacy Road in McKinney, TX, where they will be examined by medical staff and cared for until the custody hearing.

The time and date of that hearing will be determined later.
