Rescued Dogs Need New Homes

Volunteers with the Humane Society of West Texas hope some South Plains residents will open their homes.  They're looking to place a group of rescued dogs with loving families.

Hockley County authorities removed 11 dogs from a home between Lubbock and Levelland last month. Rescuers called it a "puppy mill". The owner, J.G. Alford, is accused of cruelty to animals.

Since being rescued, two of the adult Labradors have given birth. Now, volunteers are trying to find homes for three adult Labs and the newly born Lab puppies.

"They just want to be loved, and I just ask the community, I know there are lots of things going on, so I just want the community to open up their hearts to these wonderful animals that just need a human touch," volunteer Cathy Wells said. 

The puppies are happy and healthy. There are nine of them needing new homes. Volunteers are also looking to adopt three adult dogs, named McDreamy, George, and Meredith.

If you would like to make one of the dogs part of your family, call (806) 794-7054.  If you would like to donate food or supplies to help care for the animals you can call the Humane Society of West Texas at (806) 799-PETS.
