MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – More than three dozen dogs are looking for homes in the Twin Cities after being rescued from a puppy mill.

The dogs came from a giant breeding operation in Michigan. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) took more than 150 dogs from the facility.

Knowing they could get good homes quickly, the Animal Humane Society brought 42 of them to Minnesota.

They’re mostly jack russel mixes, and in pretty good health.

“So while they are small, they do make great lap dogs,” said Carrie Libera of the Animal Humane Society. You have to take them for a run first, get their energy out. They’re going to need a lot of exercise, an active family would be really good for these dogs.”

These dogs will be ready for adoption at the Golden Valley site on Wednesday. Then they’ll go to the other Animal Humane Society locations later in the week.

You can see other pets up for adoption here.
