Dogs rescued from warehouse up for adoption

SAN BENITO —Barking could be heard all around the Cameron County Animal Shelter yesterday as people approached kennels filled with dogs in hopes of adopting a new pet.

All of the dogs up for adoption were properly cared for and treated after being rescued last week from a warehouse in Los Fresnos, some found in critical condition.

Authorities confiscated 270 dogs and one cat after responding to calls from neighbors about animal cruelty.
