Justice for the cats of Whiskerville Animal Sanctuary

*UPDATE* As of 1/18/2012 Wydell Dixon and her employee have been charged with animal cruelty. On 1/17/2012 Judge Sonny James ruled that the state would keep custody of the cats. Dixon and her lawyer are appealing.

Wydell Dixon had the doors to her animal rescue, Whiskerville Animal Sanctuary in Texas City, TX.  forced open on 1/3/2012, after animal control officers received complaints of neglect. The officers discovered 27 dead cats that had starved to death and 168 live cats that survived this horrible case of neglect.

*Update* As of 1/13/2012 there have been 18 more cats found alive since the initial raid on 1/3/2012. Total number of rescued cats is now 186.
