GREENSBORO, N.C. — Those wanting to adopt dogs taken from the suspected puppy mill in Stokes County can start applying on Sunday.

Marsha Williams with the Guilford County Animal Shelter said some of the 130 animals they took in from Dan River Bullies in Danbury are being made available for adoption soon.

The shelter is making eight English bulldogs and 10 French bulldogs available, along with Chihuahuas, Shih Tzus, Boston Terriers and Yorkies.

Those wanting to adopt must apply in person at the shelter. No fax or email applications will be accepted.

Williams said those wanting to adopt the English or French bulldogs should have experience with those animals.

Williams said more than 250 people have previously expressed interest, and calls have come from as far away as Ohio.

Dan River Bullies, located at 1560 Bob Mabe Road, was raided on Feb. 7. More than 150 dogs were seized, and some of them went toward Wake County and Charlotte.

Williams said the animals had multiple problems, including eye, skin, and teeth infections.

Lucille and Willis Mabe were charged with 27 counts each of misdemeanor animal cruelty on Thursday. They are expected to be served on the charges March 1.
