FORT WORTH (AP) – The Humane Society doesn’t normally encourage holiday pet adoptions without careful consideration but feels it has no choice after many animals were received Friday.

The Humane Society of North Texas is filled up after taking custody of 142 small dogs, three pygmy goats, three rabbits, two cats and more than a dozen chickens from what authorities called a puppy mill.

The animals were seized from a kennel in Aubrey on Dec. 6 after being kept in deplorable conditions in a mobile home, two outbuildings and two outdoor enclosures. The owners relinquished the animals in a civil hearing Friday.

The new arrivals have left the Humane Society short on space, but officials say most of the animals are ready for adoption.
