PHOENIX, Ariz. – More than two-dozen Oklahoma dogs rescued from puppy mills are getting a new start.

Almost 30 of the pups have been shipped to Phoenix, Arizona, where they will be given medical check-ups, vaccinations and finally, a name.

Officials said the dogs will be ready for their new homes in a couple of weeks.

The Arizona Animal Welfare League is handling the pup transfer.

Officials with the group said they are working with authorities across the U.S., including here in Oklahoma, to pass legislation to crack down on illegal puppy mills.
