On January 10, the Houston Humane Society's Animal Cruelty Investigation Team, in partnership with Harris County Constable's Office Precinct 5, seized 10 poodles in horrible shape. The mini poodles were housed in a garage (with no a/c or heat) and living in feces and muck. Each one was severely matted and filthy.
Upon arrival at the HHS Animal Wellness Clinic, the dogs were examined by a veterinarian, shaved and cleaned, blood work drawn, and medical rehab started.
After a month of clinic care, the 10 dogs are available for adoption. We are looking for homes with dog experience. The dogs are all very sweet, but quite shy. They enjoy sitting next to you to have their head and ears scratched, but they do get easily startled. They just need a little patience and a lot of love.
