With the police, Michaelson works to bring the case to court, and other neglected animals from the property are seized. Meanwhile SPCA Investigator Mark Lutkenhaus discovers dozens of dogs in a house in Brazoria County, a case of hoarding that has only come to light when the owner was taken into hospital. A team is quickly assembled to get the dogs out and to the SPCA hospital. The hospital is also called into action in the case of a little dog that has been shot by a pellet gun and the pellet has lodged in its body.
