From the SPCA of Texas:

On Tuesday, under the authority of the Gregg Sheriff’s Office, the SPCA of Texas seized 16 cruelly treated dogs from a property in Gregg County.

The dogs are very thin, and many have lacerations and scars on their bodies. Additionally, the property contained items that are consistent with dog fighting.

On Tuesday, November 12, the Gregg County Sheriff’s Office contacted the SPCA of Texas about several cruelly treated dogs on a property in Gregg County. The SPCA of Texas Rescue and Investigations team visited the property that day and saw 16 dogs chained up to the ground, which is in violation of the Texas Health and Safety Code. The SPCA of Texas and Gregg County Sheriff’s Office concurred that it was in the animal’s best interest to remove the animals, and the Gregg County Sheriff’s Office sought a seizure warrant.

Due to the dogs’ condition, the SPCA of Texas and the Gregg County Sheriff’s Office concurred that the animals needed to be removed from the property and the SPCA of Texas transported the dogs to an undisclosed location until the custody hearing.

The custody hearing will be held on Thursday, November 21 at 1:45 p.m. at the Courthouse located at 1098 E. Commerce Street, Gladewater, TX 75647, Justice of the Peace, Pct. 3, the Honorable Talyna Carlson presiding.
