POINT BLANK — On Thursday, San Jacinto County Precinct 3 Constable’s office received multiple complaints of abandoned dogs located in Point Blank.
Constable Sam Houston and Capt. Pete Sparta found one dog was tied to a tree with no water and no food and approximately 5 inches of cable to move around, while other dogs were in deplorable conditions.
A second dog was found roaming a neighbor’s yard and was also found to be skinny and in need of medical attention.
Sparta and Houston removed the animals from the location, and then took the dogs to the Houston Humane Society for further evaluation and to be placed for adoption.
The constables’ office will be filing criminal charges against the suspects involved.
The Constables office wants to remind everyone that animal abandonment is a crime.
