AMERICUS, GA (WALB) – More than three weeks ago, 85 animals were taken from a puppy mill on Highway 195.

The animals are at the Sumter County Humane Society now and still have not been released to be adopted.

Humane Society officials say that with some extra care and help from the community, the animals are happier now.

But all of that extra attention is making them run low on supplies and now they could use your help again.

Tricia Howard, the Manager of the Sumter County Humane Society said, "we need donations, monetary donations. We've had tremendous support from people with dog food, dog beds, bowls, towels, pet blankets."

Howard says that she is hopeful that the animals that are in their care will be released for adoption soon.
