APD rescues five malnourished dogs in South Austin

After the Austin Animal Center received a call bringing attention to several dogs abandoned in the backyard of an Austin home, multiple dogs have been surrendered to the Austin Police Department's Animal Cruelty Division. Authorities say when they arrived on the scene, the dogs were clearly malnourished, with visible ribs and hips. Officers were initially unable to legally enter the private property but finally got the go-ahead to take the dogs to the Austin Animal Shelter. They should be ready for adoption soon.

The APD has taken over the case and will determine whether to file any criminal charges.
