New Yorkers to adopt dogs rescued in Missouri
Tuesday, August 10, 2010 | 9:49 a.m. CDT
PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y. — About 120 dogs of all ages will be available for adoption on Long Island following their rescue from 14 "puppy mills" in Missouri.
The North Shore Animal League America said Tuesday it has received the dogs from National Mill Dog Rescue.
North Shore experts will evaluate the dogs medically, behaviorally and socially. They'll be spayed or neutered before they're offered for adoption, starting on Saturday.
The breeds include Yorkshire terrier, Cavalier King Charles spaniel, poodle, bichon frise (BEE'-shahn FREEZ), cocker spaniel and Pomeranian.
The rescue groups say the animals suffered in crowded commercial breeding operations.
