The Humane Society of North Texas (HSNT) assisted the Cooke County Sheriff’s
Department in Valley View on the negotiated release of 13 dogs recently (Feb. 1). The property owner released the dogs because she had no means to continue to
support the animals at the property.
Upon arrival at the property, most of the dogs were found in an outdoor pen, some were in a trailer, and the remaining dogs were loose on the property. All 13 of the dogs were transported by HSNT to an offsite quarantine property for evaluation where they were found to be suffering from severe demodectic mange, fleas, and intestinal worms.
The dogs are now being treated for their ailments and are resting comfortably.
“Once these severely neglected dogs and puppies have completely recovered they will be available for adoption in our facilities. HSNT will continue to support and partner with law officials and act as an advocate on behalf of all animals, ensuring their well-being,” said Cassie Lackey, HSNT Director of Communications.
HSNT is in immediate need of financial support for these neglected animals to cover the
cost of food, bedding, and veterinary care. Several adult female dogs are pregnant and will
need foster homes once their treatment is complete. To make a monetary donation to
assist with the care of these dogs, visit: hsnt.org and donate to the Animal Medical Fund.
