GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — Nearly two dozen dogs are on their way to finding fur-ever homes after being rescued by the Animal Humane Society.
The 22 dogs were taken from a breeder in rural Minnesota, north of the Twin Cities, after a report found there were too many dogs on the property.
According to the AHS, the breeder was licensed, but their license has since been revoked by the Board of Animal Health.
The dogs were put into mandatory five-day quarantine for brucellosis, an infectious disease caused by bacteria that can spread from infected animals to humans, the AHS said. All of the animals tested negative for the disease and are getting prepared for the adoption process.
The rescued dogs, which range in age from just a few hours old to 8 years old, span a variety of breeds and crosses, including St. Bernards, Labrador Retrievers, Setters, corgis, Great Danes and doodles.
When dogs are ready for adoption, their profiles will be posted on the Animal Humane Society website.
