Last week, animal control officers rescued 111 dogs in Mesquite, Texas. The staggering number of dogs were all at one residence, in conditions described as “deplorable,” reports DFW CBS News.
Director of Neighborhood Services, Maria Martinez, said,
“We were made aware of the situation in which a residence may have had a large number of dogs. Our Animal Services Officers responded and found 111 small breed dogs. The property owner surrendered the animals to the City, and we transported them to our shelter for impoundment and intake vaccines. We worked with our rescue partners and by the end of the day, all the dogs left the shelter to begin their new journey.”
Mesquite Animal Pawtners commended those involved for rescuing the dogs:
