More than 100 puppy mill dogs are getting a new leash on life Monday.The huge rescue effort to save the pooches culminated with their arrival at a shelter in New Jersey.

The dogs, most of them purebreds, were taken from several mills in the midwest, and now they are all looking for homes.

The pups are being housed at St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center in Madison. The rescue is a collaborative effort between St. Hubert's and and the National Mill Dog Rescue of Colorado.

Rescued breeds from Missouri, Arkansas and Iowa include Toy and Miniature Poodles, French Bulldogs, Labrador Retrievers, Miniature Dachshunds, English Bulldogs, Golden-doodles, Pugs and many more.

Dozens of volunteers are working to provide veterinary exams, medical treatment, bathing and grooming so that the dogs can be spayed or neutered and prepared for adoption. They will be ready for loving homes beginning Friday, August 28.
