PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y. (PIX11) -- More than 90 dogs are getting a second chance at life after being rescued from a puppy mill.

The rescue team from North Shore Animal League America in Port Washington saved the puppies and dogs from a commercial breeding operation in the Midwest.

"These dogs are the lucky ones, to be honest," said Ted Moriates, Off-Site Rescue Driver for the Animal League. "Watching their transitions and seeing them be adopted into loving homes is very gratifying."

The dogs, varying in age, size and breed became available for adoption Saturday.

Each dog has been spayed or neutered, is up to date on shots and has a microchip.

Animal League America is the world's largest no-kill rescue and adoption organization.
