CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Animal Care Service needs your help with information on an active animal cruelty case.
A total of 22 dogs were found and brought to Corpus Christi Animal Care Services.
These dogs are in stable condition but still have a ways to go before a full recovery.
Workers with Animal Care Services are still trying to put the pieces to the puzzle on who and why someone would place multiple dogs cramped together in different crates.
When employees found the helpless chihuahua's they reveal that the dogs were in the summer heat, trapped under chicken wire, thin, and were in need of attention.
To be honest, the main goal is to get them a forever home so that way they can stay in a constant family or anyone who is looking for a lap dog that's our main goal, is to find an animal a forever home and just to be loved and cared for and not forgotten,” says Animal Care Services field supervisor Brittany Crayton.
However, all hope isn't lost.
Volunteers with the non-profit animal rescue group Fur Ever United Rescue are working with Animal Care Services and are doing their best to nurture these pups.
The dogs are getting the care and attention that they require, but there is more work to be done.
As of right now, they are doing great you know, they've been bathed, they are on medication, our rescue teams are working on getting them forever homes as well as getting them on their proper medical care that they need,” says Crayton.
Once these animals reach a full recovery they will be taken to the North Pacific where there they will be placed for adoption.
