RACINE, Wis. (AP) – Officials say animals seized from a southeastern Wisconsin shelter last week should go up for adoption soon.

Angela Speed of the Wisconsin Humane Society says she hopes the animals are available for adoption in the next couple of weeks.

Police seized about 90 animals from Orphan Kanines in Caledonia and two area homes.

The Journal Times reports about half of the seized dogs are being kept at a temporary shelter in Racine. That location is currently not open to the public. Other seized dogs are being kept at the Wisconsin Humane Society’s Racine, Milwaukee and Ozaukee campuses.

Owners of two of the dogs have come forward and should be able to bring them home soon.

The owner of Orphan Kanines has since relinquished ownership of the animals that were seized.
