Eight of the 37 dogs taken from a Grand Rapids home in June are available for adoption through the Kent County Animal Shelter, officials said.

County officials received a warrant in June to investigate the welfare of dogs kept by Kimberly Savino at her home on Oakwood N.E. since 2013.

Officials at the animal shelter say eight of the 37 dogs are available for adoption. Some of the offers for adoption have come from as far away as California, officials told WOOD Radio News.

Authorities filed felony charges for animal cruelty against Savino. She's been ordered to pay more than $100,000, calculated on the cost to care for the dogs while they were sheltered.
