Please call Animal Control for every suspect case of Dog Abuse

I have Animal Control's phone number programmed in my cell phone so that I can report abuse anytime. Will you do the same? The phone number is 817-392-3737. Messages are checked several times per day. If all else fails, call 911.

Neighbor smells foul odor; officials find dead pit bulls
Arlington police found dead dogs either chained up or locked in kennels in the backyard of a 24-year-old man now facing 11 counts of animal cruelty.
Three of the seven dead dogs were pit bull puppies in a crate. Arlington officers also found a bag of dog bones and a dog skull in the back yard of the east Arlington home rented by Christopher J. Clark (right).
Animal services officers also seized five emaciated pit bulls from the home and are trying to get them to rescue groups so they will not have to be euthanized. Three of the dogs were inside the home and two dogs were chained on a short metal chain to trees in the backyard. None of the dogs had food or water.
The investigation began Dec. 8 after a resident reported a bad smell coming from next door.
