LOOGOOTEE, Ind. (WTHI) - Volunteers at the Martin County Humane Society have been working for weeks to get dozens of dogs, rescued from a puppy mill, into new homes. Now those volunteers tell News 10 they’ve succeeded.

Shelter volunteers confirm the last of the rescued dogs left the shelter Saturday. Some of the dogs are on "trial adoptions" but volunteers say they are confident the animals will do well in their new homes.

The good news doesn't stop there. There is only one remaining dog in the whole shelter. The pup was there before the puppy mill bust. We’re told a potential adopter will be there to see that dog Sunday.
