A guilty plea from a Frankfort woman allows the Franklin County Humane Society to begin setting up adoptions for dozens of dogs the woman was hoarding.

Darene Martin pleaded guilty on Tuesday to animal cruelty, according to court records.

Investigators said the dogs were found about three months ago dirty, infected, and infested with fleas.

Martin's guilty plea means she will not be allowed to own a dog for at least a year.

The Franklin County Humane Society said that the dogs go up for adoption on Friday on a first come first serve basis.

The adoption fee is $90.
