Officials recently rescued a large number of dogs from a breeder in northwest Kansas, but there were so many, more than 100, that the animals had to be spread over several shelters.
The Caring Hands Humane Society in Newton was one recipient, taking in nine of the rescued dogs.
The Kansas Animal Health Department usually seizes animals from breeders when conditions become unsuitable, but it doesn't necessarily mean the rescued animals are unsuitable for adoption.
"These dogs are in good condition. They are social, they seem healthy, perky, lively," Jack Brand at Caring Hands Humane Society said. "Once they are spayed and neutered, people can come out and adopt them. In the meantime, people can fill out an application and get approved to when they are all set to go."
Caring Hands is only one of several humane societies in the state helping these dogs find homes.
Although they're not available for adoption yet, you can see the dogs at Caring Hands online by clicking here. Also on their website, you can fill out an application for adoption.
