Washington County Humane Society

MILWAUKEE — Authorities in Washington County, just outside Milwaukee, intercepted a pickup Friday illegally transporting nearly 50 dogs — mostly puppies — from Texas to Wisconsin.

The stop happened about midnight Friday, and authorities quickly contacted the Washington County Humane Society.

Caregivers worked into the early morning intaking these dogs, no doubt frightened from their harrowing journey, according to a post from the shelter.

Volunteers and a vet spent the weekend working to ensure they are well cared for.

The majority of the puppies seem perfectly healthy and some may even be spayed/neutered soon, according to the shelter.

The public can expect to see many of these dogs up for adoption as early as Tuesday (9/6) and viewable at wchspets.org .
