About twenty of the dogs seized in July from a Pearlington home are available for adoption at the Hancock County Animal Shelter in Kiln Officials say more than forty dogs were surrendered to authorities by woman, who kept the dogs in two pens behind her home. The dogs were found in undesirable living conditions with stagnant water and muddy pens. Shelter director Toni Accardo says half of the dogs are ready for adoption. He says the others are in foster homes so they can become more sociable. They'll be ready for adoption soon. Accardo said the mixed-breed dogs, age three to ten years old, are up-to-date on shots and have been dewormed.
