The Texas Human Heroes rescued 10 dogs from deplorable conditions on Sept. 26.

The nonprofit group was called to help in a possible dog hoarding case in La Ward, Texas. The property contained over 70 dogs that were all un-altered and infested with fleas and ticks.

An email was sent to the nonprofit community explaining the situation and requested $5,000 for donations. Donors blew past the original request and donated over $11,000.

With the money, all dogs must be spayed or neutered, tested for heartworms, microchipped, vaccinated, and checked for any other health issues.

One of the dogs needs dental work costing $2,000, another dog gave birth to two puppies on Monday and a vet is checking out an additional dog who appears to be pregnant.

“Without our loyal community acting quick and going above and beyond our plea, we are able to give these dogs the best quality of life and find them their forever home”, Jeff Struchtemeyer, Texas Humane Heroes executive director said.

Two of the dogs are already on the adoption floor waiting for their forever family.
