Custody of Bella Awarded to HHS

The Houston Humane Society is happy to report custody of Bella has been awarded to the Houston Humane Society by a Justice of the Peace in civil court today, October 11th.
The Houston Humane Society, in partnership with Harris County Constables Office Precinct 5, initially took custody of the 6 month-old chocolate lab mix puppy after receiving a report from a concerned citizen regarding a dog abandoned in a vacated home in the 200 block of Taranto.  You can read more here: http://www.houstonhumane.org/news/latest-news/animal-cruelty-seizure-10-5-2016
Update on Bella’s condition:  Bella has a long road to recovery ahead of her.  In the past week, the veterinary team at HHS has been treating her with multiple antibiotics to fight infection, medications and baths to address the mange covering virtually her entire body, antihistamines, dewormer, liquid vitamins and a prescription diet. 
Bella has come a long way emotionally, but recent bloodwork still puts her prognosis as guarded.  Please continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
