Texas backyard breeder rescue underway saving dogs in horrible condition

In Rio Grande City, Texas, an ongoing rescue continues as Rescue Dogs Rock NYC have removed at least 20 dogs and puppies living in boxes, covered in mange, surrounded in filth and roaming the property. All of the dogs are reported to be in horrible medical condition.

“We estimate 30 dogs are on the property, and we are taking as many as we can remove,” stated co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, Stacey Silverstein. “So far the number we have taken is approximately 20.

The breeder is fighting to keep the rest and we are really hoping the authorities get involved. Sadly in South Texas animals are treated so poorly and very little is ever done to protect them and stop the abuse.

Some were brought to the local shelter and we have taken all of those as well.”

As the efforts to remove all of the dogs continued, on Tuesday authorities removed the “outside” dogs and left the inside dogs with the breeder. When they returned the woman was gone. The breeder alleges all of the dogs have been “rehomed.”

” In other words … she will maintain the breeding just at a different location or lay low until they forget about it/her.

The authorities took the outside dogs to a kill shelter and that’s when we came in and took all 18…” Stacey posted on the organization’s social media page, along with the photos and videos of the terribly neglected sick dogs and puppies.

All of the dogs will need extreme medical care. This is a very expensive undertaking. To help:
