MADISON - A New Jersey animal shelter has taken in 31 dogs that were rescued from abuse in Ohio.

The dogs arrived in the Garden State via the Humane Society of the United States’ rescue big rig, and were given food, shelter and affection. More than 160 dogs were rescued in the Ohio animal abuse investigation.

The 31 dogs were taken to the St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center in Madison.

“The case was neglect. There were skin issues, ear infections, abscesses. A lot of the animals need dental attention,” says Heather Cammisa with the shelter. “When they're not being fed, [dogs will] eat almost anything."

The dogs are expected to be put up for adoption this week. Anyone interested in adopting the canines should contact St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center.
