FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — The Larimer Humane Society has rescued 63 Chihuahuas from a home where they were being bred without a license in Northern Colorado.

The dogs, which were taken from the home Tuesday, were part of the largest animal rescue the Larimer Humane Society has coordinated since 111 live bunnies were found in a home following the September 2014 floods. The shelter began working with the owner a few weeks ago after getting a call from a sheriff's deputy.

Judy Calhoun, executive director of the Larimer Humane Society, tells The Coloradoan in Fort Collins that the owner will not face charges for mistreatment or for breeding without a proper license because all but four animals were willingly surrendered.

The dogs were generally in good health, but some showed signs of distress.
