GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- Some of the three-dozen dogs removed from a Grand Rapids home are available for adoption.

Five puppies are among the first of the 39 dogs the Kent County animal shelter will be placing in new homes after they were taken out of the home of a woman now charged with cruelty to animals.

The dogs have been with the shelter since late June.

Kimberly Savino tried to get the dogs back, but Circuit Judge James Robert Redford told her that unless she could pay $106,000 for the dogs' care until her trial was completed, they would be offered for adoption.

The Grand Rapids Press reports Friday Savino didn't pay the money.
Savino's lawyer says the husband of the homeowner where his client lived was responsible for the dogs' condition. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
