    Dozens of rescued beagles arrived in San Diego on Monday and will soon be available for adoption.

    The dogs, 35 in total, were rescued from a large commercial breeding operation in the central U.S. Eleven of the beagles went to shelters in Las Vegas, while the remaining animals came to San Diego County.

    Thirteen beagles were set to undergo health exams and should be available for adoption sometime in the next 10 to 14 days, said John Van Zante, spokesman for the Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas.

    The other beagles were rescued by the San Diego animal rescue group Four Paws.

    The rescued dogs were discarded from large-scale breeding operations that focus on producing as many dogs from a certain breed as possible. Once the market is saturated, the breeders switch to a different breed, Van Zante said.

    “They come from a situation where there’s no future,” he said.
