Here at TotalAlive, we have already shared several animal rescue and adoption stories. But what we have for you today is something very different from the rest.
If seeing an animal being neglected by an abusive caretakers pains you, what more when you found out that more than 100 cats and dogs are stuck in a Texas home where they had no food and water? These poor four-legged beings had to bear the smell of their own feces and bodily fluids as nobody cared to clean their dwelling place. But thankfully, authorities have already rescued them and the animals are now safe and recovering.
Warning: the first part of the full story is distressing. So please don’t proceed if you think you can’t stomach animal neglect.
The Humane Society of North Texas recently saved more than 100 animals from a dirty, foul-smelling, and neglected Keller home. Twenty-seven of which are dogs while 84 are cats.
Authorities were alerted by the neighbors who noticed the stinking and rancid smell coming from the said place. It’s not usual for dogs and cats’ smell to reach the person living next door if you clean them regularly. So people must have started wondering why it smelled so funky and decided to call the officers.
However, the animal rescue mission didn’t come easy. Reportedly, the owner initially refused to allow the authorities to investigate the home. Having said that, the officers needed to process a search warrant in order to see what was really going on.
They were shocked to see 84 cats situated in the garage without food and water. It was very obvious that nobody even cared to check on them as their litter boxes were filled with poop. In addition, their cages were stocked up like Legos to save space, which must be very uncomfortable for them.
As per the Humane Society of North Texas, 14 of the cats and dogs were located inside a stationary mini-van. Worse, there was no air conditioning unit in place and the temperature reached 94 degrees. That’s too warm for them as their room temperature should be maintained at around 78 degrees, apparently.
