Volunteers groom 75 puppies for adoption

February 16, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
Wednesday is adoption day in Gulfport, Mississippi. Seventy-five puppies need new homes.

The owner surrendered the puppies earlier this week. She was a dog breeder, but admitted she had collected far too many canines for her to handle after the death of her husband.

The puppies are all in good health. When word got out of the puppies' plight, volunteers flooded the Gulfport Humane Society to help groom the dogs for Wednesday's adoption festival.
