27 dogs seized from home in Gilmer

Posted: Updated:

GILMER (KYTX) - After hearing reports of 27 dogs being cruelly confined, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) took action and seized the animals from a home in Gilmer, Texas. The dogs were found half of them living in the urine soaked home and the rest were living in the front yard.

The SPCA reports that the dogs appear to have various health issues, including hair loss, flea infestation, nasal discharge and eye discharge. Of the 27 dogs, there were ten puppies.


This investigation began on June 13. After further investigation the SPCA and Upshur County Sheriffs Office determined that the animals were being cruelly treated and it would be best to have them removed. The Upshur County Sheriff's Office sought a seizure warrant.


SPCA of Texas vehicles transported the animals to the Perry Animal Care Center at 8411 Stacy Road in McKinney, TX, where they are being examined by medical staff and will be cared for until the custody hearing.

The custody hearing will take place on Thursday, July 10 at 2 p.m. at the Upshur County Courthouse.
