Sgt. Darlene Chandler with Harris County Precinct 1 Animal Cruelty Unit and investigators with the Houston SPCA spent Wednesday responding to reports of animals possibly left in the cold.
“We’re going to remove this dog under what’s called exigent circumstances due to the inclement weather also due to him being abandoned,” Chandler said.
On one particular call in a neighborhood just north of downtown, a senior dog believed to have been abandoned for days and whose water bowel had frozen over was rescued Wednesday afternoon.
