Dogs rescued in Parker County available for adoption

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of dogs that were seized from suspected puppy mills now need new permanent homes.

The Humane Society of North Texas said it has been working with the Parker County Sheriff's Department on a case that involved about 150 dogs allegedly living in filthy conditions.

Animal control officials first tried to seize the dogs on Jan. 14, but the owner had moved most of them. They are now all at the shelter.

Additionally, the humane society said it has taken in dogs from six other big cases this month. About 100 dogs arrived at the shelter Monday and 100 more are expected next week.

The shelter said it is in desperate need of donations and supplies such as blankets, towels, disinfectant wipes, paper towels and Purina One or Science Diet dry dog food.

It is hoping upcoming adoption specials will encourage people to take home a new pet. For more information, visit

All of the neglected animals are evaluated and treated for any medical conditions before being put up for adoption, the shelter said.
