The Humane Society doesn't normally encourage holiday pet adoptions without careful consideration but feels it has no choice after many animals were received Friday.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that the Humane Society of North Texas is filled up after taking custody of 142 small dogs, three pygmy goats, three rabbits, two cats and more than a dozen chickens from what authorities called a puppy mill.

The animals were seized from a kennel in Aubrey on Dec. 6 after being kept in deplorable conditions in a mobile home, two outbuildings and two outdoor enclosures. The owners relinquished the animals in a civil hearing Friday.

The new arrivals have left the Humane Society short on space, but officials say most of the animals are ready for adoption.
