Seized shelter animals heading out to find homes

Animals seized from a no-kill shelter in Harrison County will begin moving to new locations and will be made available for adoption today.

More than 300 animals were seized March 16 from the South Mississippi Rescue Team and Refuge. Since then, the Humane Society of South Mississippi has cared for the animals and provided necessary medical treatment.

Today, about 90 animals will be picked up by the Okaloosa County, Fla., shelter, followed by other shelters and rescue groups over the weekend to pick up the animals and take them to be adopted out in other communities.

Sunherald.com will update this information once additional details are released.
