On August 15, 2018, the Houston Humane Society assisted the Grimes County Sheriff’s Office with a seizure involving nearly 300 animals. The Grimes County Sheriff’s Office reached out to the Houston Humane Society for assistance during the course of their investigation.
The animals seized include 242 various small dog breeds, such as Pomeranians, Min Pins, and Chinese Cresteds (both hairless and powder puffs) as well as 49 mini horses and Shetland ponies. All of the animals showed severe signs of long term neglect. Many were housed in vile, rusted out caging and forced to live in their own filth and feces. They were found extremely malnourished, matted, soiled, and covered in parasites. They were brought immediately to the Houston Humane Society’s Animal Wellness Clinic where they are receiving the medical attention they so desperately need.
At this time the animals are under veterinary care at the Houston Humane Society.
