Nineteen dogs taken from a filthy home in rural Central Texas earlier this week have been receiving grooming and medical services at the Austin Humane Society.
The dogs were removed after law enforcement served a seizure warrant to the owner of the dogs due to their filthy conditions and improper care.
On Friday Midtown Groom and Board assisted the Humane Society with bathing and grooming the animals.
The organization has to wait for a judge to decide if they can keep the animals.
"We'll wait to see what the judge says," Kelly Hanes of the Austin Humane Society said. "If the judge awards the custody and ownership of the dogs to us of course we will work with them even more to make sure their health is perfect and give them the socialization training that we can hope we can give them lots of holding like this. If that judge awards us the custody then we would obviously look to adopting and finding great homes in the Austin area for them."
The breeds include Shih Tzu, Papillion, Maltese, poodle, Chihuahua, dachshund, and schnauzers. The dogs range in weight from four to 14 pounds.
