35 cats rescued from deplorable conditions in one Houston home late night.
Neighbors had not seen the owner is approx. 3 weeks and called a welfare check. Authorities responded and observed several cats deceased in the windowsills.
The Harris County Animal Cruelty Taskforce was contacted and made the scene. Thanks to the efforts of the Harris County Animal Cruelty Taskforce partners Harris County Const. Pct. 5, Harris County Pets, Animal ER of Northwest Houston, and Houston Humane Society, the cats were safely removed from the home and are now in caring hands.
The emergency rescue happened late in the evening. The team worked into the night to ensure these animals were no longer suffering in the unlivable conditions they were found in. 10 deceased cats were also in the home, bodies decaying and leaving a horrible stench behind.
All cats are infested with fleas, suffer from severe eye/ear infections, and some with no vision. One cat in such a severe state continues fighting for her life after being rushed by deputies to Animal ER of Northwest Houston for overnight care.
Thank you, Dr Jennifer Hennessey Bremseth and the medical team at the Animal ER of Northwest Houston who is trying to save her life.
