An unlicensed breeder in Douglas County won’t be fined under an agreement with the state.
A total of 17 dogs and 14 cats were seized from the breeder, state animal health officials said Friday.
"He wasn't meeting standards," said Debra Duncan, Kansas Animal Health Department Animal Facilities Inspection Program director.
The animals were taken from Larry Tuckel, who will not be fined under a consent agreement with state officials. Duncan said the case did not involve animal cruelty.
The animals, along with 51 dogs seized from Allen County last week, were distributed to animal shelters throughout the state, including the Lawrence Humane Society, 1805 E. 19th St.
