PARAMUS - Dozens of puppies taken from the Just Pups pet store in Paramus have found new homes, less than a day after it was announced that they were available for adoption.

Paramus officials posted on the borough’s website that they are no longer taking adoption applications due to the overwhelming response.

The dogs are part of the group that were forfeited following the closure of the Just Pups store in Paramus.

The store owner told News 12 New Jersey in early May that he is terminating his lease and leaving his location a month after 67 puppies were found inside a van behind the store.

Owner Vincent LoSacco says his landlord plans to redevelop the property and that he had already agreed to leave.

LoSacco said his Paramus location has been combined with his Emerson store.

LoSacco and his brother are charged with 134 counts of animal cruelty. He has denied any wrongdoing.

The owner is also facing other animal cruelty charges in connection with his Just Pups store in East Brunswick.
