Basically it means the animal isn’t quite ready yet to be adopted. This can be for various reasons but most commonly, they are still on a legal hold in case an owner is looking for them.

From a jungle of rain-washed pines and junipers spearing the recent blueness on the Florida sky, ran a little, tawny-haired boy. His bare ft, extending from his overalled legs, crackled against the fallen palmettos. He leaped in to the air, flinging his arms toward a flock of white doves circling earlier mentioned him.
Katie Mulvaney Journal Staff Writer kmulvane EXETER — The Exeter man facing charges that he mistreated his animals voluntarily relinquished ownership of his dogs and many of his goats. They are up for adoption after what represents the largest animal seizure in Rhode Island, according to animal advocates. The Rhode Island State Police on Thursday charged Carlos Alves, 59, of 425 Gardner Rd., with misdemeanor counts of mistreatment of animals and unnecessary cruelty to animals after workers for Exeter Animal Control and the Rhode Island Society for the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals found dozens of dogs, goats, and rabbits without water, surrounded by feces and exposed to temperatures below freezing, according to the state police.
Alves surrendered to the state police late Thursday and was arraigned at the Hope Valley Barracks. He was released pending a District Court appearance at a future date. Joseph Warzycha, director of operations for the RISPCA, said a contractor cutting trees on the rural property alerted Exeter Animal Control the morning of Dec. 22 to concerns about the animals. "It sounded pretty urgent," Warzycha said.
Animal control and the RISPCA workers found Brittany spaniels tethered to doghouses and chihuahuas enclosed on the deck outdoors amid piles of feces. Soon, they located five beagle puppies, estimated to be five to seven weeks old, and their mother in a chain-link enclosure, also exposed to the elements and without adequate bedding and water, he said. The temperature read 27 degrees. Barking could be heard as they inspected the property, a former rod and gun club.
They found more dogs with inadequate housing, as well as about 40 rabbits and 10 goats, four of which were kids born that morning, Warzycha said. Thirty to 40 ducks and chickens also roamed the land. "There was no evidence they were malnourished. Our concern was for the lack of adequate structures and the unsanitary conditions," Warzycha said. Alves could not be found, so the officers decided to seize the animals most at risk, including the small dogs, puppies and the nursing kids and their mothers, he said.
In all, 17 dogs were initially removed. "I do know there was no malice or intent," Warzycha said of Alves. "He has way too many animals. I just think he had too much on his plate." He said Alves hunted in Maine with several of the dogs and often works six or seven days a week. He said Alves wept and told animal welfare workers, "I feed them. I feed them." "He was remorseful," Warzycha said. Alves agreed to sign all 24 dogs over to the RISPCA, clearing the way for them to be adopted.
"He was very cooperative," Warzycha said. The puppies are already spoken for. Several of the dogs are being cared for by the Potter League for Animals. Alves also relinquished ownership of the three nursing mother goats and the kids, who are being cared for by Exeter Animal Control, he said. Three goats, the rabbits and fowl remain on the property, though Alves is being guided about how to properly house and care for the animals and birds, Warzycha said.
"We wouldn't have left anything there that was in jeopardy," Warzycha said. They might try to convince him to relinquish the remaining goats as well. The RISPCA, meanwhile, declared allegations of neglect against a Warwick dog owner unfounded after investigating complaints that dogs were left outside during the cold weather. A news release posted Friday night on the RISPCA website said investigators had found the owner in compliance with the law, noting that the dogs were in good condition, showed no sign of neglect and had access to outdoor shelter "sufficient to protect them from the inclement elements.
" Nevertheless, the owner has agreed to move the dogs to a heated indoor housing facility on the property, although he was not legally obligated to do so, the RISPCA website said.
