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

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 (https://goo.gl/TizWHc ) 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.
