On Tuesday, 62 dogs were rescued from a van coming from Indiana.

That is according to our reporting partners at The Elkhart Truth.

A hotel employee from Hebron, Ohio notified the Licking County Sheriff’s Department about the dogs. The minivan, which had broken down on its way to New Jersey, was found in the parking lot of the hotel.

The car was filled with 50 grown dogs and 12 puppies. Some were as young as three weeks old.

The Licking County Humane Society Executive Director, Lori Carlson, said that some of the dogs may have been used for breeding and could have been part of a puppy mill. Some of the females had given birth multiple times.

The owner has agreed to surrender all the dogs.
