SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah (AP) -- A man who illegally ran a South Salt Lake animal shelter has agreed to give up control of most of his animals.

That means they will soon be up for adoption.

Randal and Stephanie Evans, who ran the Hope Haven Animal Rescue, have been charged with several misdemeanors, including animal cruelty.

Last month, police seized 35 cats, 26 dogs, three birds and two rabbits after serving a warrant on the warehouse the Evanses were renting at 2600 South and 1000 West.

Of the animals seized, 26 cats, 23 dogs and two rabbits will be available for adopting.

For information call the South Salt Lake Animal Shelter at 887-7217.
