Spark of Life Kitten Foster & Rescue in Killeen — the target of a Humane Society effort that seized about 200 animals earlier this month — has ceased operations as part of an agreement with the city reached prior to a scheduled court hearing originally set for Monday morning. Because an agreement was reached outside of court, the hearing was canceled.

“The (owners) had four pets they personally owned separate from the foster and shelter operations,” Killeen city spokeswoman Hilary Shine said in an email Monday. “The agreement called for ownership to be surrendered and (the) animals placed permanently elsewhere.”
