SPCA seizes five confined dogs in Honey Grove

Posted: Updated:

From the SPCA of Texas:

Under the authority of the Fannin County Sheriff's Department, the SPCA of Texas seized five cruelly confined dogs earlier today from a property in Honey Grove, TX.

The dogs were being cruelly confined in a feces-filled, urine soaked kennel. The dogs also did not have access to adequate food or clean water. The current heat wave in North Texas put the dogs' health at even greater risk.

The Fannin County Sheriff's Department visited the property on a separate matter, saw the dogs' conditions and contacted the SPCA of Texas on August 23. The SPCA of Texas visited the property on August 24 and concurred with the Fannin County Sheriff's Department that it was in the animals' best interest to obtain a warrant and remove the animals immediately.  

SPCA of Texas vehicles are transporting the animals to the Perry Animal Care Center at 8411 Stacy Road/FM 720 in McKinney, TX 75070, where they will be examined by medical staff and cared for until the custody hearing. The expected arrival time at the Perry Animal Care Center is approximately 5:30 p.m. today

The custody hearing will be held on Friday, September 3 at 2 p.m. at the Fannin County Justice of the Peace, Pct. 1 Courthouse at 101 E. Sam Rayburn Drive in Bonham, TX, Judge Joe C. Dale presiding.

If the SPCA of Texas is awarded custody of the animals, they would be individually evaluated for potential adoption or placement on a case by case basis.
