300 people interested in adopting puppies from Lincoln County Humane Society


MERRILL, Wis (WSAU)   The Lincoln County Humane Society has been overwhelmed with adoption papers for the 56 puppies surrendered to them last weekend. A couple that had been breeding the dogs was evicted from a home they'd been renting on Highway J. They surrendered the animals voluntarily. No criminal charges will be filed; they'd been working with sheriffs deputies trying to get a kennel license.

So far more than 300 people have filled out adoption applications. The shelter says it’s also looking for a donated computer printer and paper, in addition to puppy formula and food to care for the dogs.

It will still be a few more days before the first adoptions can take place. The animals need to be checked by a veterinarian and be spayed or neutered. The cost of fixing the animals will be at least $8,000. They're looking for cash donations to cover those expenses.
