Staff at the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society have been working diligently this holiday season to get these animals ready to find forever homes.

It takes a special kind of person or family to adopt an animal from hoarded or overcrowded, filthy conditions. They need a lot of work.

Families enjoying time off from school paid visits on Thursday to offer the animals "forever homes."

Back on December 18, the dogs and 97 other animals including cats, ferrets and birds were retrieved from the home. Officials then said the living conditions were filthy and the home was deemed uninhabitable the next day. Mohawk Hudson Humane Society officials say the ferrets have been adopted out -- and several dogs were adopted on Thursday.

"All of the animals are receiving excellent veterinary care. A number of them are still in foster care. Others are here with us and we're making them available as we spay and neuter them," explained Marguerite Pearson, with the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society.
