    Federal court documents reveal in the past, the owner of an adult novelty store on State Street in Bristol, Va. was selling more than just lingerie, pornography and synthetic drugs.

HAWKINS COUNTY, TN (WJHL) - After 2 rescues totaling more than 70 animals, the Hawkins County Human society is at full capacity.

"We've got some animals in our visitation room. We've got animals up front in cages. Our cat room is full and our kennels are pretty much full," said Hawkins County Humane Society Manager Vanessa Collins.

Workers told News Channel 11 this is the first time the Humane Society has taken in many of these kinds of animals.  For many of the furry, and not so furry friends food is scarce.

"The birds, the lizards, the rats, and animals like that we've never dealt with here so we need food," said Assistant Manager Sandy Behnke. Behnke said  they've received a lot of donations including  food for the cats and dogs, and a cage for one of the guinea pigs. She said there is however, one thing the Humane Society still needs.

"We need crickets for the lizards that’s very important," said Behnke.

Collins said many of the animals are recovering. But she said they are still trying to get a veterinarian to come out and look at all of them. She said they are still unsure when they will be able to begin adopting the animals out.
