Livestock Unit Makes Another Seizure

On February 23, 2017, Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Livestock Unit met with the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) at 22856 Hughley Lane, New Caney, in reference to animal abuse. According to SPCA Investigators, they had been working a neglect case at the above address since November of 2016. SPCA Investigators had been attempting to get the owner of a horse and several dogs to comply with a feeding program and vet care.
During the investigation, Deputies observed six adult dogs, eight puppies, and one horse in poor health. The dogs were chained-up without food or water. Deputies also discovered a female dog and her puppies locked in a small shed, severely emaciated, and near death. Deputies located the horse behind the house in a small fenced area with no grass or food. The horse was in poor condition and looked extremely underweight due to malnutrition. All animals were seized and placed in the care of the SPCA. A seizure hearing has been set to determine final placement of the animals.
The owner of the animals, Andres Rodriguez, a 46 year old New Caney resident, was arrested on 14 charges of Cruelty to Animals and one charge of Cruelty to Livestock.
Anyone with additional information regarding this crime, is asked to contact the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office at 936-760-5800 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-392-STOP (7867).

    Meant to add to my post that the time the horse disappeared from the place on Mexican John Rd. was probably in November, or maybe a little earlier. But about that time frame.

    I live on Forest Lane Circle in New Caney, and there was a horse around the corner on Mexican John Rd. that was being kept on a 1/4 acre lot where no one was living. The horse was alone all the time except for a little while every day or two when the owner would come by and put out a few 5 gal. buckets of water. The horse would whinnie and make all sorts of noises, so loud I could hear it clearly and I’m several houses away. Toward the end of the time the horse was there, it was completely shut up in a shed and was not able to get out. This really looks like the same horse to me. I called the sheriff’s office as they had jurisdiction at the time and reported it. The sheriff came out and said it was a young horse but that there was nothing they could do as the shed counted as shelter. A few weeks later I saw an SPCA notice on their gate. I drove by, saw it and stopped, got out and read it, yes. A couple days later the horse was gone. The owner was definitely Hispanic, I saw them on a few occasions. I wonder if this is the same horse, just moved a few miles up the road. It certainly looks like the same horse to me. Regardless, I’m very glad the horse was removed from that guy.

    My comment that was not posted was not wrong. I believe that he should be sent away and treated the same way that he treated the animals
