About 130 dogs from among the nearly 1,000 taken from a home targeted in a five-month investigation into puppy mills in Virginia during a massive rescue operation have arrived at a Long Island animal shelter.

The dogs were taken in by the North Shore Animal League in Port Washington, where they are expected to be put up for adoption beginning Friday.
