NORTON, Kan. (AP) - Police and animal-rescue officials say dozens of dogs have been seized from a northwestern Kansas house and will be assessed for adoption.

The Wichita Eagle reports that the Norton, Kansas, police say that the rescue effort that also included the Kansas Department of Agriculture and a nonprofit group called National Mill Dog Rescue involved 51 adult dogs and a dozen puppies. Police said several of the animals were pregnant.

National Mill Dog Rescue says it took the canines to its Peyton, Colorado, site, with plans to assess their health and temperament for adoption.

The group says it has helped rescue more than 11,500 dogs since 2007.
