Each home will be made of four shipping containers to make-up a 1,280-square-foot home. The homes will feature three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a second-floor balcony and covered carport.

Habitat for Humanity still needs to raise the funds for the $4.5 million project.

The SPCA of Texas' Animal Cruelty Investigations Unit works tirelessly to help abused and neglected animals in need. We’re proud to report that The SPCA of Texas' Animal Cruelty Investigations Unit has arrested four people in two separate cases of cruelty to non-livestock animals in the last few days.

Case One |The SPCA of Texas removes two allegedly cruelly treated dogs from a property in Southern Dallas. Pictures below are from this case.

On Wednesday, January 10, the SPCA of Texas took custody of two allegedly cruelly treated dogs from a property in Southern Dallas after the animal owner signed custody of the dogs over to the SPCA of Texas. One dog was deceased and the other was so emaciated that every rib and hipbone was plainly visible through his skin. SPCA of Texas’ vehicles transported the animals to the organization's Russell E. Dealey Animal Rescue Center in Dallas, where they were examined by medical staff and the living dog continues to be cared for. The dogs were found inside wire cages in the backyard of the property without access to shelter, food, water or care. The dogs were both emaciated, with ribs and hip bones protruding. A necropsy was performed by a veterinarian on the deceased dog, and the cause of death was determined to be from complications related to starvation and dehydration. This dog's entire gastrointestinal tract did not have any substance for nourishment. The living dog was examined by a veterinarian, and this dog's health condition was determined to be extremely poor. He was suffering from starvation, dehydration and diarrhea as well as being emaciated, with a body condition score of one out of nine (with 1 being emaciated and 4-5 considered normal). He was weak and could barely stand, and was covered in mud and diarrhea. As investigators were carefully removing him from the location, he screamed in pain every time he attempted to walk as he fell over several times. The SPCA of Texas received a complaint of suspected animal cruelty going on at the property the morning of January 10. The SPCA of Texas' Animal Cruelty Investigations Unit and the Dallas County District Attorney's Office visited the property the same morning the complaint was submitted to the SPCA of Texas. The Investigator was able to see the animals' dire living conditions was able to speak with the animal owner, who agreed to sign custody of the animals over to the SPCA of Texas. On Thursday, January 18, 2018, Anthony Terry Nichols, Jr. and Jamine Teara Sadler were arrested on one charge of Third Degree Felony Cruelty to Non-Livestock Animals regarding a case from January 10, 2018 and were booked into the Dallas County Jail. They were arraigned on January 19 and bond was set at $5,000 each. An indictment will be coming in the next several weeks, and that will determine when the trial will be set.

Case Two | 140 animals seized from an alleged puppy mill in Fannin County.

will you ever visit quinlain? a shithole full of human waste and stray dogs? what about making strict laws, like people paying a few thousand dollars? this will probably help, so this low lifes will not have any animals.

Thank you for helping these sweet animals. There is no punishment harsh enough for people who hurt children, the elderly and animals.

This breaks my heart that these lovely babies knew such pain. I can only hope the full extent of the law is used against this couple. I only wish more people would report potential animal abuse. It's better to have someone go check it out and it be wrong than to let animals suffer. Now to the rescue team that has the guts and bravery to do such a needed yet horrifying job. I could never get through a day of what you do. I'm too soft hearted and would just vomit and cry all the time. Thanks for what you do that you aren't paid enough to do. Keep your heads up and your hearts strong. And THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU SPCA OF TEXAS!!! Keep us posted on this baby's progress. I hope he knows freedom from pain soon and pulls through with flying colors.

Did the second dog from the Jan. 10th case survive?

There has got to be stricter laws for people who abuse their animals. A small slap on the wrist, won’t fix them! I pray this baby gets a real good chance to know what being loved, actually feels like!

i mean i am happy you saved at least 2 dogs but there are so many more alone in south dallas. i read messages about ppl trying to get a hold of you and nobody can...but anyway thank you for at least this ones.

Thank you for all you do. 🙏🏻

This is so infuriating to me, God bless the SPCA for helping these and all animals as much as they are able 🙏🏻😇✝️❤️

Thank you SPCA. I'm happy to be a monthly donor - money extremely well spent.

God Bless the SPCA of Texas, their fabulous Animal Cruelty Investigations unit, and the amazing staff! As one of your many volunteers, I know how hard all of you work. God Bless you for saving thousands of animals each year and for arresting people who abuse animals.

Thank you

How could these people sleep??? Poor babies... I hope they all recover and hit the pet parent jackpot where they are loved and spoiled!❤️

Makes me sick that anyone could be that cruel!! Heartbreaking!! Thanks SPCA for all your hard work!

We need laws that treat All Abuse with stiff penalties. Cross checking, abuse a child, elderly or animal the charges are treated the same. Only when Abuse is treated harshly, Abusers will continue to abuse. Our laws are horrible. Counseling, 2nd. Chances , rehab. does not work on low lifes. Life in prison 1st. offence is the only way to stop abuse. 😓

Thank you for saving these babies. They deserve so much more in life.

Thank you for the work you do. I know it's never ending. We have three rescues and they are our family. It tears my heart out to see these angels mistreated.

Why? This is just gut wrenching. Awful. I’m so sad to read this and see the pictures. Thank goodness for spca of Texas. Saviors for the poor innocent and helpless animals.

I just don't understand why why why!!!!!!! Why aren't they given up sooner. Why people just continue to abuse instead of give them away. I don't get this. Makes me sooo mad

Lets stick the owners in a wire cage with no shelter, food or water. Tit for tat sounds good to me!

I’m grateful for the incredible work done by the SPCA of Texas and the ACI Unit! Kudos to you! The law will never do justice for what these animals endure!

Gela Estrada

5,000 is not enough for these assholes. we need stricter laws. so happy you were able to rescue that puppy.

Whatever judgment is allowed by law should be quadrupled over and over. Thank you for helping him.

Thank you SPCA...these poor babies
