CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The rush to help the 17 dogs rescued from a puppy mill in Alexander county has overwhelmed the Charlotte Humane Society. Many of the dogs were cleared for adoption Tuesday and have steadily found new, loving homes since.

"To be able to take her home and make her healthy and take care of her... It's just a really good feeling," said Rita Evans.

When Evans saw a small brown Chihuahua on the Charlotte Humane Society's website she melted.

"I was waiting for that one little puppy or dog to catch my eye," said Evans, who couldn't keep her eyes off Truffle.

Truffle is one of the 17 dogs rescued from a puppy mill in Alexander County last week. Deputies there described the home as deplorable without food, water, vet care for the dogs.

"We've had tons and tons of calls of people wanting to get here," said shelter manager Matt Smith.  "The response any time it's any kind of cruelty situation the public comes out in droves.

"Not only are they adopting an animal they're adapting an animal that was in really horrifying conditions before it was made available to them. It's fantastic."

Evans and Truffle are one of 6 completed adoptions from the puppy mill rescue last week.

"We don't have any children and so that is our baby," said Evans holding Truffle. "It's good to know we're taking care of her and give her a loving home and spoil her rotten and give her something she's not use to."

And that's a home full of love.
