LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Dogs rescued from an illegal breeder in Lancaster County will soon be up for adoption at the Capital Humane Society.

On Thursday, a judge gave ownership of the 28 abused dogs to the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office, which then released the dogs to the humane society.

The dogs had been already staying at the humane society, where local groomers helped give them makeovers.

Over the next seven days, each dog will be scheduled for spay/neuter surgery, microchipped and placed into the adoption program.

The dogs were seized by deputies on Nov. 16 at a home in northwest Lancaster County.

Julia Hudson, 70, had been running an unlicensed dog breeding facility.  Capt. Tommy Trotter said many of the dogs were living in unsanitary conditions.

Hudson threatened to use her dogs against the deputies and tried to push them away before she was arrested.

She had previously been convicted of animal neglect in 2013.
