LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Fifty-five dogs rescued from an eastern Kentucky puppy mill were brought to Louisville on Monday.

Earlier this month, the puppy mill operator in Morehead pleaded guilty to two counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty and one count of kennel violation.

She forfeited ownership of 136 dogs to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

On Monday, the ASPCA brought dozens of the dogs, including poodles, papillons, West Highland terriers, Chinese crested, and daschunds, to the Kentucky Humane Society in Louisville.

After receiving health and behavior assessments and spay and neuter surgeries, the dogs will be available for adoption at the nine KHS adoption centers in Louisville.
