PARMA, Ohio -- It was adoption day for several rescued animals from a puppy mill in Parma Sunday.

The city took in 18 dogs and turned them over to the Parma Animal Shelter for Adoption in June. In all, 34 dogs, 250 birds, six cats and a few rabbits were seized from Dolores Buckley, 63. Authorities say they found the animals were living in filthy, deplorable conditions following tips from residents.

In July, Buckley struck a deal that will keep her out of jail and allow her to keep some of her favorite animals.

So far, 12 out of the 18 dogs at the Parma Animal Shelter have been adopted. Puppies cost $100 to adopt, and adult dogs are $85. If you're interested in adopting, visit the shelter at 6260 State Road in Parma or call 440-885-8014.
