The animals found roaming in this area have broken limbs, may be pregnant, infested with mange or may have been used in dog fighting. That’s only the ones found alive. Many dead animals are dumped in the area as well. Deborah has saved many of these dogs and will continue to do this amazing gesture of kindness for many years to come. She is a saint to the animals and she is our Houston HERO!!
