FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Rescue workers say the 174 dogs seized from a rural North Dakota man last month are now available for adoption.
Authorities took the dogs from breeder Darcy Smith, of Wheatland, on July 10 after reports they were being kept in poor condition. Smith has decided not to seek to regain custody of the dogs.
The dogs have been turned over to a group called 4 Luv of Dog for adoption.
Amy Kracht, president of the group, tells the Grand Forks Herald that people who want to adopt dogs can now fill out applications online, but the process may take a week to 10 days to complete. She says each adoption requires an in-home visit by a rescue volunteer to make sure potential owners have appropriate facilities.
