ETOWAH COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

Three dogs sent to Etowah County Humane Society after being seized from two animal hoarders are ready to be adopted.

Three Schnauzers were among the 140 animals taken from a residence July 31 and were said to be in bad shape with scabies and other problems.

Officials with the Humane Society say they're now in better physical shape. The dogs have grown out their hair and officials also say their personalities have developed.

The shelter also has two parrots from the seizure. The rest of the birds were sent to a bird sanctuary in Georgia and some of the other dogs were adopted in the Birmingham area.

Two men pleaded guilty to misdemeanor animal cruelty charges in this case.
