“[They were] left to fend for themselves from illegal immigrants that cross the border with their dogs. Then they get on busses and just leave them behind”
Hundreds of dogs are being abandoned at the border by migrants. Just discarded and left behind to fend for themselves with no provisions.
This is infuriating.
As a person who loves dogs and owns one, I cannot imagine leaving a dog behind this way. It’s cruel and heartless.
A woman named Lauree Simmons, who runs a large dog rescue operation, appeared on the Tucker Carlson show on Wednesday night and described the situation as a “huge problem.”

Owner of Big Dog Ranch Rescue on a mission to save canines left at the border: ‘It’s a huge problem’
Lauree Simmons, CEO and founder of Big Dog Ranch Rescue (BDRR), estimates her organization has saved hundreds of stray dogs left at the U.S. southern border by migrants.
“It’s a huge problem,” she said Wednesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” Simmons shared that she visited Eagle Pass, Texas near the Rio Grande and saw hundreds of starving and abandoned dogs.
“[They were] left to fend for themselves from illegal immigrants that cross the border with their dogs. Then they get on busses and just leave them behind,” she said. “These dogs can’t survive on their own.”
Simmons told host Tucker Carlson the National Guard reached out to her and another organization about a border cleanup, but when she arrived, she was shocked by how many stray dogs there were.
“This couldn’t come at a worse time. Shelters throughout the country are overflowing everywhere,” she said.
