FREEPORT, Fla. (WTVY) -- It's been three weeks since Alaqua Animal Refuge rescued more than a hundred dogs seized from a Holmes County couple.

Police arrested Ferrell and Marianne Godfrey on cruelty to animal charges.

The problem was bigger than authorities first thought.

"We’re just looking for people that can open their homes for fosters. We're trying to get a lot of these animals into foster homes because it’s hot outside," says outside manager Alissa Parsons.

Only 4 of the 155 had microchips. Only one was reunited with its original family.

The shelter says it’s important to microchip your pets and have them reregistered over time.

The second chance Saturday event runs from noon to 5 at the shelter in Freeport.
