ODESSA - This week, Animal Control Officials in Odessa have their hands full.

On Wednesday, West Texans made their way to Odessa to adopt dogs seized from a puppy mill raid.

Officers say they've seen a large turnout since they opened up adoptions at ten on Wednesday morning.

Officials started the day with more than a hundred animals in their facility.

76 of them are a variety of dogs seized in last month's raid in West Odessa.

Those animals were found in deplorable living conditions.

Since then, officers say they've been doing well

Odessa officers also said they've seen many animals being adopted by Midlanders.

With such a high turnout, officials say most of the dogs could have new homes by the end of the week.
