The Palm Valley Animal Society is still dealing with the influx of animals after back-to-back cases of animal hoarding in McAllen.

The two women charged in one of those cases have signed away their rights to the animals.

Cindy Ann Wells, 55, and Leticia Sanders, 54, were arraigned on 94 counts of cruelty to non-livestock animals. McAllen police found 93 dogs and one cat at a residence on Ozark Avenue.

Palm Valley Animal Shelter took those animals and placed them to fosters or rescue groups out of the area.

"The other five dogs that have not left our shelter can be adopted on site on Trenton," PVAS Director Faith Wright said.

For the second case, Jose Antonio Moli, 63, was arrested for hoarding 68 cats, dogs and other animals at a home on West Fern Street.
