On February 3, 2019, at about 10:00 pm, a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Deputy discovered an unusual situation while performing an area patrol near the Dollar General in 37500 block of FM1774 in Magnolia Texas. Citizens in the parking lot advised the Deputy that they found a box containing young puppies that someone placed in the trash dumpster. Through the on-duty supervisor, a foster volunteer with Lani’s Lucky Shepherds of Houston – A German Shepherd Dog Rescue was contacted and agreed to take the puppies in. The Deputy then transported the healthy puppies to the volunteer’s house where they were given safe shelter, food, and attention until more permanent accommodations could be found. The Deputy’s area patrol was a proactive response to a recent increase in burglaries at these type of stores in the area. Unfortunately, there was no evidence found at the scene to indicate who was responsible for abandoning the puppies. The compassion and teamwork showed by both the Deputy and the volunteer are yet another example of what a great community Montgomery County is to live and work in.
