More than Fifty Dogs and Cats Found in Lindale Home

It sounds like it could be a classic case of dog and cat hoarding that city animal services workers are having to deal with.

Last week, Animal Services went to a home on Windthorst Road and seized around 25 cats and dogs. Now, Wednesday afternoon, half a dozen or more animal control trucks were dispatched to a house on Lindale, near Fairway and Southwest Parkway, to pick up more dogs and cats. Police units were also dispatched to direct traffic on the congested street.

That home is also listed as a residence of the man who was at the Windthorst Road house. Officials say more than two dozen dogs and cats were in the Lindale home, and our crew counted around 10 cats, and about 20 dogs, plus several more that appeared to be puppies.

Katreena Mitchel with Animal Services says, as was the case on Windthorst Road, the owner was voluntarily surrendering the animals.

Neighbors say they saw a man at the house, but he did not appear to live in it all the time. They also said they had questions about the house, because some nights there was a very strong odor in he area.

Mitchell says she could not say much about the animals, as she did last Friday when the two dozen or more animals taken from the Windthorst Road house. City officials were serving a warrant for a building and code violation when they say they found about 25 dogs and cats on the property.
