(KMOV) – More than 100 dogs rescued from a breeding facility in south central Missouri were being transported to the state Humane Society’s headquarters in St. Louis on Wednesday.
Officials say 135 puppies and adult dogs were taken from a Howell County facility after the owner decided to shut it down and agreed to place them in the custody of the Humane Society of Missouri.
Among the breeds being transported were Beagle, Boston Terrier, Cocker Spaniel, French Bull Dog, Pug, Miniature Poodle, Miniature Schnauzer, Shih Tzu and Yorkshire Terrier.
The dogs were expected to arrive at the Humane Society of Missouri’s headquarters on Macklind Ave. Wednesday afternoon.
“We will provide veterinary treatment, socialization and find them the loving homes all dogs deserve,” said Humane Society of Missouri President Kathy Warnick.
Anyone interested in adopting the dogs are asked to visit the Humane Society of Missouri website.
