Listen to the interview with Sue Gartland at the Delta Aimal Shelter.
The dogs and horses seized in August from an alleged puppy mill in Rock can now be adopted.
Rebecca Johnson, who is charged with cruelty and abandonment of the animals, yesterday agreed to the forfeiture action and gave up all her rights to the animals.
The Delta County Prosecutor’s office says the action makes the animals immediately available for adoption. The Delta Animal Shelter has been caring for nearly 217 dogs and puppies and 23 horses.
Because of the large number of animals, the prosecutor’’s office says the shelter will provide information on the availability of the animals and adoption process on Facebook and Instagram.
Johnson has a court hearing on January 22. She face up to seven years in prison.
