Foster families are desperately needed to help care for some of the current pet residents at the shelter to free up kennel space for the rescued dogs who need isolation and extensive veterinary care. The rescued dogs are not ready for adoption at this time.
The Houston Humane Society seized 230 dogs and 11 cats from a home on Oakland Park Drive and Strack Road on Thursday.
A representative for the shelter said the animals had been living in deplorable conditions for several years. The shelter said the woman had stopped selling the dogs, but they continued to breed. The majority of the dogs are said to be Chihuahua and Chinese crested breeds.
Precinct 6 deputies and the Houston Humane Society R.A.I.D.E.R. team executed a warrant on Thursday. The animals were brought to the Houston Humane Society, where medical evaluations were conducted.
A civil hearing is scheduled on Jan. 28 for the 63-year-old woman who lived at that home.
