HOUSTON—Are you looking for a furry friend? Some of the 160 dogs recently removed from a north Houston home are available for adoption at the Houston SPCA.

The SPCA assisted Precinct 1 Constables in rescuing the animals on June 8 after investigators said they received an anonymous tip.

The dogs were found all over the home, including four dead animals in a freezer, SPCA officials said.

"There were dogs, literally, everywhere inside the home," SPCA Spokeswoman Meera Nandlal said. "There were animals all over, from the living room, to the kitchen, the bedrooms to the bathrooms."

The SPCA has been reviewing the health status of each individual dog since their arrival at the shelter to determine adoptability.

The animals range in age from just a few days old to 14 years and are suffering from a variety of medical conditions, ranging from highly contagious diseases to more minor issues like mange, dental problems and upper respiratory infections, the SPCA said.

As more dogs become available, their pictures will be posted on the SPCA website.
