RedRover Responders in Eastland, Texas

RedRover has deployed nearly two-dozen volunteers to operate a temporary shelter in Eastland County, Texas where over 110 animals were seized from a local breeding operation.

In an effort coordinated by the Eastland Police Department and the Eastland County Sherriff’s Office, 100 dogs, 8 rats and 2 turtles were seized from deplorable conditions on private property within the city limits of Eastland and later in the day, at a rural site in Eastland County.

RedRover was asked to send volunteers to the temporary shelter by the City of Eastland. The rescue was set in motion after Eastland officials received tips about allegedly cruel conditions and neglected animals in need of veterinary care.

All of the animals were safely removed and transported to the emergency shelter, where they will be examined by a team of veterinarians and receive any necessary immediate medical care.
