The 164 Pomeranians recovered from the back of a box truck in Sandy Valley will soon be available for adoption, an animal shelter announced Thursday.
The dogs had previously been placed on a legal hold while in the care of The Animal Foundation, but the organization announced Thursday the hold had been lifted.
“Due to the large number of dogs and the time required to prepare them for adoption, this requires careful planning to ensure a smooth process for finding them loving homes,” the foundation announced in a statement.
People interested in adopting the dogs should monitor social media and the organization’s website for updates on when they could be adopted, spokeswoman Kelly Leahy said.
The dogs were taken to the foundation after they were found in an abandoned truck without food, water or ventilation in Sandy Valley, a community located 45 miles southwest of Las Vegas.
The dogs aren’t yet available for viewing, Leahy said.
