The Quincy Humane Society was alerted by the Illinois Department of Agriculture of the need to remove 305 animals from the unidentified facility.

Officials say there had been complaints of sick, injured and dead animals at the facility for the last year.

Humane society personnel, with the help of other area animal rescue agencies, spent Thursday, Friday and Saturday taking dogs and cats from the facility.

No charges are being filed against the breeding facility because they agreed to surrender their licenses and animals over to the state Department of Agriculture.

Once the animals receive medical attention, they will be available for adoption at agencies in Quincy, Jacksonville and Springfield.
