The Humane Society of the United States joined with Montgomery County Precinct 3 Constable and Montgomery County Animal Control to remove nearly three hundred dogs from a "shelter" in Willis, Texas. As in shown in this graphic news report, former employees came forward to report deplorable conditions for the pits bulls living there:
A temporary shelter has been established by local groups working with The HSUS, and the dogs given medical screening. Pending judicial disposition, the dogs will also be evaluated for possible adoption.
"This case should not speak to the important work and value of rescue groups across the country," said Katie Jarl, Texas state director for The HSUS. "There are thousands of responsible rescues in the U.S., and they provide life-saving resources for animals in need, and for people who want to adopt a pet. The HSUS is dedicated to giving every dog the best possible chance at a life with a loving family, and animal rescue groups are an important part of that effort."
Providing forensic veterinarian assistance for the rescue effort were Dr. Melina Merck, Dr. Mike Woolley, Dr. Timothy Harkness of the Houston Humane Society, as well as other veterinarians from Texas A&M University.
