They spent their entire lives in a crate. Now they are free!

The Houston SPCA and Houston Police Department rescued seven Yorkshire Terriers and five Bulldogs from a backyard breeder in Northeast Houston after spending most of their lives in poor conditions, and in some cases, inside shared cages.

At least one of the Bulldogs will need surgery to repair ‘cherry eye’ or a prolapsed third eyelid gland, common in the breed that can cause serious vision impairment if not treated. The Yorkies will be treated for matting and dental issues.  The dogs will be placed into foster care to continue their rehabilitation and care during the pandemic.

The Houston SPCA continues to serve the community with emergency services, including animal cruelty investigations, 24-rescue ambulance, and wildlife rehabilitation.  To report animal cruelty, call (713) 869-SPCA, and for injured/distressed strays, call the rescue ambulance at (713) 880-HELP.  Help support our lifesaving mission today!
