1045 Animals Seized in Houston

The SPCA took 1045 animals out of a home in Texas that were living in horrible conditions.
When SPCA investigators received an anonymous tip Wednesday afternoon about animals in need of medical care at a home in northwest Houston, they had no idea it would turn into one of the largest U.S. animal seizures in memory.

"At that time, we didn't know how many animals were on the property," said Charles Jantzen, chief investigator for the Houston Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
They are apparently still trying to figure out whether to charge these people.

Mr. Barky,

This is simply shocking, and mistreatment of animals under no circumstances should mistreatment of animals be allowed to occur on such a scale.

That said, I am glad to hear that the animals have been rescued.
