HOUSTON, TX — Fort Bend County Animal Services in Rosenberg, Texas, rescued 76 dogs from a Houston-area home.

According to officials, the Fort Bend County Animals Services, Houston SPCA and Fort Bend Sheriff's Office assisted with the rescue of 76 dogs, 46 of which were puppies at a home in Needville on Thursday.

The dogs were all living in deplorable conditions. Officials said urine and feces were scattered in and around the home while some were being kept in "filthy" wire cages.

Being in those cages could injury their paws.

The FBCAS has been working for the past two weeks to ensure that the dogs would be surrendered amicably. Also, that the dogs could receive treatment and care. They are all with the Houston SPCA with the veterinary staff.

Officials said that medical care can be costly and they are accepting donations on behalf of the dogs.
