Puppy found in abandoned home lying on pile of dirty laundry

In Houston, Texas, an animal cruelty officer found a large abandoned puppy lying on a pile of dirty laundry in a vacant home located in the 200 block of Taranto Lane.bella-houston-2

According to the Houston Humane Society Facebook, the dog was immediately transferred to the organization’s Animal Wellness Clinic for emergency care.

“This is one of the most horrific cases of neglect I’ve seen in a long time. It’s heartbreaking to see any animal hurt needlessly, and I cannot imagine how much pain and suffering she has endured already in her short life,” stated spokesperson for the HHS, Monica Schmidt.

The emaciated puppy’s body is covered in mange, and she suffers from multiple intestinal parasites. The chocolate Labrador retriever mix is estimated to be no more than six-months of age. She has been dubbed Bella, and although her health is extremely compromised at this time, the sweet puppy is expected to make a full recovery.bella-houston-3

Officers now need the public’s help to bring the owner to justice. If anyone has any information, please contact the Houston Humane Society at 713-433-6421, by email at deputy@houstonhumane.org, or online by clicking here. You can help save pets just like Bella by giving directly to our animal cruelty investigation program.

    Check with the power company to see who the last person to have power at that property was. They are likely to be the ones that abandoned this poor pup.

    Lucky she was FOUND BEFORE she starved to death!!!! Unless our JUDICIAL System gets their POOP IN A GROUP !! and start giving prison time to and very stiff fines to the individuals who are abandoning, maiming, torturing of animals. THIS will continue and ONLY get WORSE!!!

    This is so sad! It seems that our society is failing tremendously! I have been reading more stories like this than ever before. How can anyone do this with a clear conscious? Makes my heart hurt and my stomach turn!
    Where can I find this puppy? I will take him.
