About 150 puppies -- rescued from a midwestern puppy mill -- are safe after being brought to North Shore Animal League, but they still need a cozy home to spend the holidays -- and hopefully lots of time after that.

Looking for a pup to bring into your home? Good news. After much-needed grooming, full physical and behavioral evaluations by Animal League veterinary and behavioral stuff, the dogs will become available for adoption.

Most of them will likely be available in time for the holidays, so you can wrap FiDo up with a pink or blue bow and give a gift of warm and laughter to your friends and family.

While most of the dogs will remain at the Animal League until they find homes, two other animal welfare organizations -- Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons in Wainscott and Noah’s Ark Animal Welfare Association in Ledgewood, N.J. -- will take care of the pups until they're adopted.

The rescued dogs will include various breeds such as Dachshunds, Westies, French Bulldogs, Poodles, Boston Terriers, Beagles, Brussels Griffons and Bichon Frises.
