Dozens of dogs rescued from a giant breeding operation in Michigan are looking for homes in the Twin Cities, WCCO reports.

The Detroit Free Press says 169 animals, including Jack Russell Terriers, Shiba Inus and other dogs, were removed from puppy mills last Friday by local authorities and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

“There were all ages, including puppies. They think there were at least four to five generations of dogs there. It’s been going on quite some time,” Nancy Gunnigle, spokesperson for the Michigan Humane Society, told the Detroit Free Press.

Many of the animals had no access to drinking water and were kept outdoors with little shelter from the elements, according to the ASPCA.

WCCO says 42 of the dogs, mostly Jack Russel mixes in pretty good health, will be available for adoption Wednesday at the Humane Society in Golden Valley.

KARE 11 has video of the dogs waiting to be taken home.
