Dogs recovered from ‘horrific conditions’ up for adoption

GEORGETOWN, Texas (KXAN) — Several of the dogs rescued last month from a home in Taylor already have new homes.

Three weeks ago, animal control workers removed nearly two dozen dogs from what they called “horrific conditions.” Some of those dogs tested positive for Parvo. Five of the 19 surviving dogs have already been adopted and two more are now looking for a new home.

“Luckily, except for those suffering from Parvo, they weren’t in very, very rough shape, but they needed some tender love and care,” said Misty Valenta with the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter.

The remaining 12 dogs are either too young to be adopted out or still in quarantine for Parvo. All of the animals will be up for adoption when they are old and healthy enough. Valenta credits the community’s support for helping the dogs recover. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
