A flatbed truck pulled up to the Humane Society of North Texas (HSNT) with 20 animals who were in such terrible shape that the hearts of shelter staff broke at the sight.
But without thinking twice, the shelter immediately sprung into action to save their lives. They also put out a plea for help, as their resources were strained from the sudden influx of the neglected animals.
Their plea was heard and their was an outpouring of support.
Among the animals surrendered were three poodle mixes who needed emergency care. “These animals are in agony from the weight of their dreadlocks weighed down by dirt, feces and urine,” HSNT wrote.
One in particular – Pierre – was matted so badly that he couldn’t walk without pain.
He literally had to be sheered like a sheep.
