Greenville Animal Care says an animal adoption event on Sunday that was scheduled for Haywood Mall has been moved to their shelter.

The adoption event will include some dogs and puppies seized by police in a puppy mill raid on a home in Fountain Inn on June 20th.

More than 150 animals were seized and treated at that home on Dunklin Road in Fountain Inn.

Animal control officers say the pets lived in horrible conditions there and were taken to the shelter.

The owner of the animals, Dale Ferguson, pleaded guilty Friday to five counts of animal cruelty, three counts of non-displaying rabies tags in a Greenville County Court.  Ferguson was ordered to pay a $6,200 fine, but was unable to do so, so he was sentenced to 90 days in jail.

The pet adoption will be held Sunday, July 28th at Greenville Animal Care on 328 Furman Hall Road from 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm.

If you pre-adopt one of the seized animals, you'll have to wait a week for it to be spayed and neutered.
