Three dozen dogs from the largest-ever animal seizure in Habersham County arrived in Gainesville on Wednesday. Along with the 36 dogs that will eventually be available for adoption, the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia took in five mothers and their puppies from a collection of more than 400 animals seized from a Habersham County property near Clarkesville. The mothers and their puppies will go straight to foster families, while the other dogs will be processed through the adoption system.
