14 Rat Terrier mixes rescued after concerned family member reported owner
SAN ANTONIO -- Fourteen Rat Terrier mix dogs who were surrendered in a hoarding case in Karnes County have now been transferred to the San Antonio Humane Society.
The Karnes County Humane Organization was alerted about the situation by a family member of the dogs' owner, who told them the owner could no longer care for the dogs due to declining health.
“The situation was not easy to walk into,” says Gina from the KCHO, “These poor dogs have never really had any human contact and they were all in one large enclosure jumping over each other to get away from being caught.”
The dogs range in age from four months to four years, and the San Antonio Humane Society is now working to find the puppies and dogs forever homes in San Antonio. Many will be available for adoption starting Friday after their medical exams and baths. The folks at the SAHS say some of the puppies and dogs may be a bit shy and will need a great deal of patience until they are able to become more acclimated with their environment and human touch.
Numerous pregnant dogs were also removed from these living conditions and have gone into foster care until they and their puppies are ready to be adopted.
