POMPTON LAKES - Some weary canines have made it to New Jersey following a cross-country trip.

Last month, they were among 124 dogs rescued after being stored in cages at a warehouse in Washington state. They were recovering at a facility in Arizona, where they were picked up by a group called "Wheels 4 Paws."

Pat Webb says the trip was essential to their survival. She drove over 2,400 miles with five of the dogs.

The dogs have a great future ahead of them, according to Webb. "Hopefully a little bit of rehabilitation, getting them socialized and people friendly, getting them to trust again," she says. "And then adoption."

Webb says the large dogs, including a Saint Bernard, were kept in airline crates.
