Eighty dogs seized from a home in Naples are now up for adoption.
The Ontario County District Attorney and the Ontario County Humane Society announced Wednesday that 80 of the 85 terriers, nicknamed the “Naples 85,” have been surrendered by Richard and Jane Justice. The pair is facing numerous charges of animal cruelty.
Richard has given up his rights to all 85 dogs, and as of Tuesday, Jane has relinquished her rights to 80 of the dogs. These dogs are now up adoption.
The Ontario County District Attorney’s Office says the remaining five dogs have not been returned and continue to be the subject of ongoing litigation.
The five dogs will continue to be cared for by the Humane Society until they obtain legal custody.
