All 64 dogs that were rescued from filthy and dangerous conditions in Kathryn, North Dakota last month are now up for adoption.

Karl and Ginger Helland were court ordered to give up the Australian Cattle Dogs. They face misdemeanors of animal neglect that carries a maximum sentence of a year in jail, reports WCCO.  In 2014, Ginger was found not guilty of animal neglect and abuse, according to Inforum.

Prairie Paws Rescue, a non profit animal rescue organization, currently has custody of the dogs. The organization made a temporary make-shift home for the animals at the Valley City Winter Show building, said Valley News Live.

They have received many donations of toys, treats, dog food, and chew bones since the seize, according to Facebook and News Dakota.

Now they are looking for homes for all of the dogs who are between six months and five years old.

To contact Prairie Paws Rescue you can email or call 701-320-4553 or 701-269-2206.
