Each of the five huskies were sent to a nearby animal shelter to recuperate, but Durr's work didn't end there. The following morning, she was among the first to arrive to adopt one of the dogs herself - specifically, the puppy she and her colleagues worked so hard to find.
"We weren't giving up until we found that 5th puppy who is exactly the one I chose to adopt," she says.
A volunteer from the animal shelter told The Dodo by phone that, since the word got out about Durr's commitment to rescuing the dogs, each one of them has now been adopted to new families.
"I could not be more proud of the actions of Deputy Durr and our entire team that were involved in this case," writes Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey. "Everyday our team members go above and beyond the call of duty by serving our citizens with passion and commitment to doing the right thing."
Ivey says the couple who owned the dogs have been charged with 36 counts of animal cruelty.
