Pups from a puppy mill in Maine to be up for adoption soon!

Hundreds of dogs seized from a puppy mill will soon be put up for adoption by three animal shelters in Maine.

The animals include about 250 dogs -- miniature Australian shepherds, Brussels griffons, bulldogs, shelties and other breeds -- that were seized from the J'aime Kennel in Buxton in August. Those dogs have since given birth to more than 100 puppies, which are also being put up for adoption.

The animals are now being spayed and neutered and will be released for adoption over the next several weeks.

The animal shelters involved in the adoptions are The Animal Welfare Society in Kennebunk, the Animal Refuge League in Westbrook and the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society in Lewiston. Those three facilities have about 130 of the dogs among them, with the rest placed at a Portland facility leased by the state's Animal Welfare Program.
