— A Lee County couple will not be allowed to get their more than 300 dogs back after losing a court appeal.

Barbara and Robert Woodley were convicted in April 2005 of animal cruelty after hundreds of dogs were removed from their home.
The animals were placed in the custody of the Animal Legal Defense Fund, which had sued the Woodleys.

The animals have been in foster care since being removed from the Woodleys' farm. Now that the court case has been resolved, they can be put up for adoption.

    esss: You're right about one thing: It hasn't ended yet, for the animals. I agree with you, it will end when all the dogs are adopted. I'm just glad this part is resolved.

    I'm still thanking God, because it seems to be going in a good direction.

    LamborghiniGal/ It hasn't ended yet. It will end when all the dogs are adopted. We both know that will never happen. Maybe you need to hold off on thanking God for the good ending.
