WACO, Texas (KWTX) - An animal rescue went underway following a concerned call about pets in a Waco home.

The McLennan County Sherriff’s Office responded at 4 p.m. Aug. 13 to an animal rescue call on Sacred Heart Road.

Five sheriff vehicles and three animal control vehicles were on scene to rescue 17 dogs from the house.

The dogs that were rescued were taken to the Humane Society of Central Texas where they are being treated.

No deceased animals have been reported at this time.
