Dogs seized could soon be up for adoption

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Dozens of dogs seized from a Sumter County woman could be available for adoption in the next week to 10 days.

Authorities took more than 80 dogs from Marjorie Davis' property on Highway 195 between Americus and Andersonville two weeks ago. They may let her keep some of them, but the Americus Humane Society is looking for homes for most of the dogs.

District Attorney Plez Hardin says he continues to negotiate with Davis to release custody of the dogs to the Sumter County Sheriff's Office. If she doesn't, they'll have to go to court to force her to give up the animals.
