More than four dozen dogs that were rescued by police from an alleged puppy mill in the Chicago suburb of Peotone will be up for adoption this weekend. Authorities say the animals were kept in cages at a crowded puppy mill, where some had open sores and were found emaciated.

The animals were taken to a Tinley Park animal shelter for care. They received medical attention when they arrived.

The 49 dogs rescued last Saturday include maltese, yorkies, chihuahuas, pomeranians, poodles, pug and various mixtures of the above breeds. Many of the dogs are young, some as young as three to four months and go up to a few years old.

The PAWS animal shelter will be holding an adoption on Saturday from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.
