Dogs Seized in Nacogdoches County Need Homes Soon

Nacogdoches' animal shelter is reaching out to neighboring communities, including Aggieland, to try and find homes for dogs seized two weeks ago.

More than 100 dogs were taken from a kennel 20 miles outside the East Texas city northeast of Huntsville. Authorities suspected the site was a puppy mill, and the conditions were considered squalid.

Some 70 dogs are still without homes, all of them pitbulls. The animals are currently being housed at the Nacogdoches County Expo Center, but time is running out to be able to house them, according to shelter officials, who are reaching out beyond Nacogdoches County for help.

If you are able to provide a new home for these dogs, you're asked to call Jaime Shelton at (936) 559-3598, or e-mail

Pictures of the animals can be found by clicking on the links below, though many of those pictured have been adopted. The shelter notes only pitbulls remain.
