About 85 miles east of El Paso is Sierra Blanca, part of Hudspeth County where squatters had settled, but were ordered by local property owners to leave or the authorities would be notified. On Friday the drifters were gone, but they abandoned their 17 dogs in the desert without food, water, or medical care.
According to kfoxtv.com, Doggie Do Overs, a small rescue in Dell City and the only rescue in Hudspeth County was called to help the dogs, but the organization thought there were only a few dogs left stranded. D. Sanders of the organization was surprised when she encountered so many dogs. Not only that, but she was shocked when she saw the male dogs had their testicles tied with rubber bands.
"I guess that was their way of neutering their boys, but that's not a sufficient or humane way of neutering," stated Loretta Hyde of the Animal Rescue League.
The Animal Rescue League of El Paso helped in the rescue. All of the dogs will be properly neutered once they are treated for infections. Doggie Do Overs rescued eight of the dogs.
All will be available for adoption.
