The SPCA wrote in a statement on Facebook, “It marks the beginning of a close partnership between the SPCA of Texas and the Dallas Marshal’s Office in ongoing efforts to crack down on animal cruelty in the Dowdy Ferry and surrounding areas.”
Claira-Belle was adopted by a woman named Reagan, wh said she is doing “extremely well!”
