Shelter Pleads For Help After 83 Dogs Rescued From Home

On February 22, the City of San Antonio Animal Care Services, in Texas, issued a plea for help after dozens of dogs were taken in from one home last week. According to a press release, the dogs taken from the residence on Ray Ellison Drive had been living in “overcrowded, filthy conditions.” According to the animal care agency, the dogs apparently spent their lives inside of plastic crates which were stacked one on top of the other.

Many dogs have been safely placed with area rescue groups and other animal shelters (more than fifty have found placement) but dozens of dogs (30 remain) are still in need of somewhere to go.

According to animal care services, photos of the dogs who are still in need of help can be found on the ACS Adoptable Pets Facebook page (click here), and area residents who are looking for a new pet are encouraged to visit the shelter to see if one of the rescued dogs might be a good fit. Dogs taken from in from the Ray Ellison Drive home have a special adoption fee of only $25. The fee covers the pet’s sterilization, vaccinations and a registered microchip. 

Animal Care Services is located at 4710 State Highway 151 and adoptions take place seven days a week—Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and weekends from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
