ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Almost two weeks after sheriff's deputies seized 81 dogs from a suspected puppy mill. Sumter County Humane Society employees are getting them back to health.

Several needed vet care and medication. Right now, they're waiting for the owner Marjorie Davis to release the dogs to the Sheriff's Office so people can adopt them.

Davis is charged with animal cruelty. If she does not agree to release the dogs, authorities will go to court to force her to give them up. One dog had puppies growing the number to 85.

Because of those 85 dogs plus dozens of dogs, the Americus shelter is overcrowded. Monday night, sorority sisters from Zeta Tau Alpha at Georgia Southwestern and other volunteers collected money, dog food, and other supplies to help care for the animals.

The humane society is accepting wet and dry Purina and Pedigree dog food as well as leashes, collars, flea shampoo, towels and blankets, and money donations.
