Customer Question

My sister rents a bedroom to a family member in Texas. She brought her boyfriend in to live there and a few weeks later she showed us a picture of him naked. He sent that picture to another woman on his phone. We told him he had to leave but she could stay. She has now chosen to live off and on in his hotel room and stay at my sister's house off and on. She has two dogs that she left unattended for three days in the bedroom. She has not paid rent for 5 weeks. My question is, are we required to give her a 30 day notice to move out? Can we take her dogs to the dog shelter?
