500 Dogs Seized From Texas Kennel

Nearly 500 dogs, some with skin conditions and open sores, have been seized from a Texas kennel where the Humane Society says several dead animals also were found.

Authorities in Montague County about 90 miles northwest of Dallas took the dogs from Maggic Pets/Heddins Kennel after complaints the animals weren't receiving proper veterinary care.

Cloyce Heddins' wife owns the kennel. He tells the Fort Worth Star Telegram the dogs are cared for and says authorities had bad information, possibly from disgruntled customers.

But Sandy Grambort with the Humane Society says authorities found several dead animals and seized others that were ill. She says dogs were found in crates double-stacked in outbuildings, as well as in outdoor pens and kennels.

    This is a great example of why Senate Bill 460 should pass! (http://www.ncleg.net/gascripts/BillLookup/BillLookUp.pl?Session=2009&BillID=S460) PLEASE contact your local representative and ask for their support!
