ATLANTA (CBS46) -

The Atlanta Humane Society is looking for homes for dozens of animals rescued by PETA from a Tennessee home.

The dogs and cats arrived in Atlanta on Wednesday evening. Authorities say they were among 60 pets living in the home of a Nunnelly, TN,  woman.

"They came in from a tough situation," said Karla Slocumb, from the Atlanta Humane Society. "PETA partnered with us so they went in and helped negotiate the safe release of these animals."

The Atlanta Humane Society accepted 23 cats and 11 dogs.

PETA hopes to rescue more animals from the same home.
