That is so sad. There is no excuse for such non sense! I understand wanting to rescue and help but when they are dying then your above your head and need to straigten the heck up...these people need a good smack in the face!
These people sound like hoarders to me. Hoaders are usually mentally ill and have no sense of reality of the situation they're in. That is still no excuse for this horrible situation, though. These sick people need to be arrested and prosecuted for animal cruelty.
Im in Dallas as well, although currently Im in Vancouver visiting, Im back in Dallas Oct 14th. Are there any details on the Sphynx?
If someone who lives far away and is interested in him, I can hold him for you until travel arrangements can be made. I don't have any other pets at all at the moment, so no fear of spreading germs etc.
I hope someone wonderful takes him in I don't understand, sometimes the "kind" in man kind is certainly lacking
