NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A dog owner in Wood County has handed over 100 neglected dogs, apparently too overwhelmed to care for them. Now 38 of those dogs are in North Texas waiting to be adopted.
The dogs were living inside and outside of the home – all were covered in filth and lacked clean water and medical care.
“Situations like this are all too common. Someone starts by taking in a few dogs here and there with the best of intentions, but they quickly become overwhelmed,” said Tammy Roberts, Operations Director at Humane Society of North Texas. “Unfortunately, by the time they reach out for help, many of the dogs are living in filthy conditions without access to medical treatment, proper nutrition or regular human interaction.”
