SPRING, Texas — More than two dozen dogs are getting some TLC at the Houston Humane Society after being rescued from a "hoarding situation" in Spring on Tuesday.
The 27 German shepherds were living in a home with an elderly owner who became overwhelmed and could no longer care for them, the HHS said.
The shelter worked with Harris County Precinct 5 to recover the animals, including 13 puppies from two litters. Nursing mama dogs and babies will be kept together until weaning age.
A few dogs are being treated for skin issues.
All of them will be cared for by the shelter’s veterinary team until they are ready to be placed up for adoption.
There are plenty of other dogs, puppies or cats and kittens available to adopt now. They also have rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters that need homes. You'll find more about the adoption process and fees at www.houstonhumane.org.
