A family of pit bulls left abandoned outside a thrift store are now in the care of an animal rescue group.
A Good Samaritan noticed a mama pit bull with several newborn puppies tied to a post outside the Cortez Thrift Store in the 1800 block of Rigsby on Thursday. She returned Saturday and became concerned when she saw the dogs were still there and appeared to be hungry and dehydrated. Sunday, some folks from Paws of Texas came to the rescue.
"We have offered to take the pit bulls puppies and bottle feed them, get them vaccinated, get them seen by a veterinarian and, hopefully, find them loving and responsible homes," said Katherine Vara of Paw of Texas.
Unfortunately, three out of the seven puppies were found dead. The surviving puppies will be adopted once they are nursed back to health.
