The Smith County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office rescued nearly 40 dogs from a neglect situation in Smith County, Texas, with help from The Humane Society of the United States, the SPCA of East Texas, and Animal Investigations and Response.
After authorities served a search and seizure warrant on the resident property, they found dogs living in deplorable conditions.
They were crammed into chain-link kennels with metal collapsing into some of them. They had no food and undrinkable frozen water.
The dogs hadn’t been socially interacted, so many of them were extremely fearful when rescuers came near them. Others seemed relieved to finally be getting attention and were so happy to finally be freed.
All 40 of the dogs were transported to a shelter, where they will receive medical exams and necessary treatment.
RedRover responders will be helping the Humane Society of the United States in caring for the dogs. They will finally be receiving the love and care they so desperately needed and always deserved.
Once the dogs are nursed back to health, they will all be available for adoption.
“It is unfortunate in the world today that the voices of so many barking for help go unheard,” said Josh Joplin, Smith County constable. “Here in Smith County, we hear those voices. As a law enforcement agency, we won’t tolerate animal cruelty in our community.”
