    More than two dozen dogs rescued from several puppy mills in Missouri made their way to Chicago's Anti-Cruelty Society on Wednesday.

    The 27 dogs were small breeds of all ages, according to a press release. Many of them are underweight, have ear and eye infections and dental problems.

    All of the dogs will be eligible for adoption once the Anti-Cruelty Society’s veterinarians clear them.

    "Potential adopters will be made aware of any medical conditions that these dogs have, due to poor treatment and conditions that they have been in, before considering adopting one of these dogs," said Dr. Robyn Barbiers, the organization's president.

    "In the future, the dogs could require additional veterinary care, and their owners should expect to incur additional veterinary costs," the release states.

    Interested adopters are asked not to call but to visit the website
