ST. CLOUD - Three rescued puppies from India have landed at the Tri-County Humane Society.

A Minnesota woman who goes to India on occasion developed a relationship with a vet in New Dehli that was trying to get stray puppies out of the poorer neighborhoods. The woman agreed to take some puppies and transport them to the U.S.

Executive Director of the Tri-County Humane Society, Vicki Davis, says they were likely street dogs.

"They're just street dogs, it's kind of like we have cats running around and they have puppies running around," Davis says.

The Tri-County Humane Society agreed to take the puppies since they currently have open kennels.

"Minnesota comes first but we've had so many empty puppy cages, so we thought yeah we can help out," Davis says.

Each puppy is around four-months-old. They will be spayed and neutered later today. After some recovery time, they'll be available for adoption.

Details on how to adopt can be found on the Tr-County Humane Society website.
