Cameron County Health Department

BROWNSVILLE, Texas – On Tuesday, September 10, 2019, Cameron County Public Health reported the seizure of 270 dogs and 1 cat from a property in Los Fresnos on Monday evening as part of an ongoing investigation with the Cameron County Sheriff’s Department. In an effort to help reunite potential lost dogs with their respective owners, Cameron County Public Health has established a process to facilitate reunification.

Cameron County Public Health is asking the public to complete the Cameron County Animal Shelter Pet Reunification Request Form, which requests information on the pet owner and their lost dog including the pet’s name and identifying characteristics. The form can be found at the Cameron County Public Health website at and the completed form should be submitted along with proof of ownership to  Proof of ownership must include a photo of the dog and/or pet microchip information. It is recommended that the public also provide vaccination and registration documents to avoid a re-vaccination/re-registration.

The information received will be reviewed and cross-referenced with the dogs Cameron County Public Health seized Monday evening. If a match is made, the owner will be contacted with details and further instruction.

Dogs not reunited with an owner will be available for adoption at a Cameron County Animal Adoption Fair currently being coordinated for Monday, September 16, 2019. Additional information on this fair will be issued as it become available.
