    Dozens of puppies and dogs are looking for new homes this morning after arriving on Long Island from shelters all over the country on Thursday.

    The cute critters who faced certain death are just some of the 150 animals rescued by the North Shore Animal League America’s Cooperative Pet Rescue program.

    The animals were from puppy mills and overcrowded shelters across seven different states over a three-week period.

    Many of them would have been euthanized had the program not stepped in.

    The puppies and dogs are mostly small breeds and include Chihuahuas, Pekinese, Lhasa Apsos, King Charles Cavaliers, Yorkshire Terriers, Poodles, Labradors, Labradoodles and Catahoulas.

    They are now at the New York national adoption headquarters in Port Washington waiting for someone to give them a good home.
