HANOVER, VA (WWBT) - Several people are lining up at the Hanover County Animal Control and Shelter to try to take home one of the 66 dogs that are now up for adoption. The dogs were seized from a Hanover property back in May.

The adoption process began at 10 a.m. and goes until 4:30 p.m. at the Hanover Animal Care and Control, which is located at 12471 Taylor Complex Lane.
