An animal cruelty case in Texas led Killeen Animal Services to remove 49 dogs from an unsafe home. 21 of those dogs will now be housed at the Humane Society here in Charlotte.
The Humane Society of Charlotte’s Vice President of Operations Libby Jones said, “This area of the country [around Texas] frequently becomes overwhelmed with large influxes of animals…As we enter hurricane season, it is vitally important that we help to provide much-needed transport relief…[so]… they can offer shelter to animals in need in the event of a storm.”
The incoming dogs are from a wide variety of breeds. A lot of them are mutts, but some of them are Corgis, German Shepherds, Chihuahuas, Golden Retrievers, and others. There are puppies from 3 months old as well as dogs aged up to 6 years old.
All dogs will be available for adoption as soon as they receive various assessments for behavior and health. The dogs will also be given vaccinations and spayed or neutered if they need to be. Visit the website for the Humane Society of Charlotte for more information.
