On July 20, a patrol unit from DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to 613 Catuna Road in Catuna in reference to a complaint of numerous dogs in bad health conditions. When DeSoto Animal Control and the deputy arrived at the address, three dogs could be seen from the road that appeared to be severely malnourished.

Upon further inspection, the deputy and Animal Control were able to locate six more dogs at the residence. All nine dogs appeared to have been deprived of adequate water, food, or shelter during the 100-plus degree weather. One dog was located with severe injuries to its facial area, while eight dogs were tied to a tree by heavy chains. No residents were home at the time. All nine dogs were seized by DeSoto Animal Control at that time and taken to the animal shelter.
