Houston Police and the Houston SPCA say six dogs were left outside in sub-freezing temperatures at a body shop Monday, including one who was covered partially in snow and deceased.

Another dog was found emaciated and in an area where the temperature registered 18 degrees after police responded to the scene of a Southwest Houston Auto Body Shop.

Houston SPCA and HPD Major Offenders rescued the remaining five dogs. They will immediately be seen by the Houston SPCA veterinary team and placed into their care until a hearing can be scheduled at a later date.

“You can’t leave an animal outside in extreme weather to fend for themselves and not have dire consequences like this,” said Adam Reynolds, chief animal cruelty investigator for the Houston SPCA. “We have zero-tolerance when it comes to cruelty."
