"You never know why anyone would do something like this," Lynn Shults with Rescue the Animals, SPCA said.
On Monday afternoon Rescue the Animals, SPCA received a call from the Shackelford County Sheriff's Office asking for help in rounding up the dogs.
"To go out and find them on the side of the road, all alone. We've never see anything like this before," Shults said.
What makes this case so unusual, is all the dogs are adults. Typically, when they see large cases like this, they are still puppies.
"Very, very rarely do you see multiple adult dogs. You might see one of two adult dogs, but to have 10 or 12 adult dogs dumped in one area, that's very strange," Aaron Vannoy, Animal Services Manager said.
All the dogs are Labrador mixes and some look like they could be from the same litter. They also appear to be in good health, just very tired from running around the county. The dogs were transported to the Abilene Animal Shelter, where they are currently up for adoption.
"Somebody has got to know something. We are hoping that someone will knows someone who has this many dogs, that are this type of breed," Shults said.
There is a $500 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction of the person who is responsible for this crime.
