PHOTOS: S.C. Puppy Mill Rescues Arrive At WARL

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA) -  Some wagged tails, and others looked timid, uncertain of what life might bring for a rescued canine newly arrived in our nation's capital.

Two dozen dogs, all rescued from a South Carolina puppy mill, arrived Wednesday evening at the Washington Animal Rescue League. WARL's transport van and two staffers had made the trip to a temporary animal shelter in Columbia, S.C. to pick up the dogs.

They were among approximately 225 animals, including horses and fowl, rescued after suffering neglect and abuse at a Johnston, S.C. property.
