An East Texas couple has been charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty after a raid 10 days ago in which more than 500 puppies and about 12 cats were seized.

Kaufman County sheriff's deputies arrested Margaret and James Boyd on Friday. That's after investigators and Humane Society representatives raided the Klassie Kennel on Aug. 11.

Investigators say some of the puppies from the kennel near Mabank were ill or dying.
 
A Kaufman County Jail officer said James Boyd is free on bond, but Margaret Boyd remains in custody.

If convicted, the Boyds could each be sentenced to up to a year in jail and fined up to $4,000.

No telephone numbers for the kennel nor the Boyds were found listed for Mabank, 50 miles southeast of Dallas.
