More than 150 dogs removed from locations owned by a breeding facility in Michigan are getting care at shelters around the state and in New Jersey.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals tells The Detroit News for a Friday story that some of the mostly Jack Russell terriers and Shiba Inus were transferred to the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center at St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center in Madison, N.J.

The case involves JRT John's Jack Russell and Shiba Inu Kennel near Lake City, about 170 miles northwest of Detroit. Officials said the animals were living in outdoor enclosures with little protection, and they were removed May 23 from the facilities.

The man who started the breeding business has said the seizure was illegal.
