Four Arrested, 35 Dogs and Cat Confiscated in Cruelty Case

Four arrests were made Wednesday in an animal cruelty case on Niagara Street.

Dozens of small to medium sized dogs were removed from the west side home after a representative for the local owner said they drove to the house in the 2800 block of Niagara Street near the Port Avenue and Baldwin Boulevard, to serve an eviction notice and found the animals.

The person did not want to be identified.

When they noticed a large number of animals inside and outside the house, they called the police. Police, Corpus Christi Animal Care Services and Code Enforcement all responded.

The living conditions the 35 dogs and one cat were living in were determined to be unsafe and the animals were taken to animal care services.

The police arrested three unnamed men and a woman.

They are currently in the Nueces County Jail, according to a news release.

Animal Care Services, which said in a Facebook post that it was already over capacity, is currently looking to place the animals in its care so it can care for these dogs and the cat.
