HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Volunteers are showing a lot of puppy love. More than half of the dogs seized from two puppy mills in Corinth are being cared for at the Harrison County Farm, which is run by the sheriff's department.

Humane Society of South Mississippi officials said dogs were taken from two unrelated puppy mills in Corinth, and the two groups are being cared for at separate locations to avoid possible cross contamination.

The other dogs are being looked after at the shelter.

In depth medical evaluations by veterinarians started at the shelter this morning and will take place at the farm either this afternoon or tomorrow.

Volunteers at the farm spent time feeding and cleaning the animals but said they seemed most starved for love and attention. Shelter officials say it's apparent some of the dogs had not spent much time outside of their kennels and were unaccustomed to walking on grass.

Officials said one puppy who they believe had never seen the light of day before the rescue has been named Sunshine.

Danielle Thomas spent some time with the rescued animals this afternoon. Look for her story later tonight on WLOX News and WLOX.com.
