SPCA Given Permanent Custody Of Seized Animals

A justice of the peace has decided more than 100 dogs and two horses should go to the SPCA. This, after the justice of the peace declared the animals to be mistreated.

The home of Randall and Renee Moore was raided by law enforcement by the SPCA Friday after a year of complaints from area residents. Many of the dogs were thin.  Constable Pat Jordan testified today there was not one full bag of food on the premises.

Most of the animals were taken to SPCA shelters in Dallas and McKinney where, hopefully, they'll be put up for adoption. They have been given baths, they have been groomed. Their nails have been trimmed. They have been given vaccinations. They have been wormed. They have all been looked over by our vets and vet techs to determine how they're doing, but they are doing fine, they are in stable condition.

There are still more than 40 animals on the Moores' property. The SPCA says they'll be collected soon. In addition to losing the animals, the Moores were ordered to pay nearly $6500 to the SPCA for expenses. The Moores are appealing that decision, and refused to speak with Channel 7 today.
