PORTLAND, Ore. - Dozens of dogs rescued from one of the largest dog neglect cases in Oregon history will be ready to go home to loving families this week.

The Oregon Humane Society received more than 120 dogs from a warehouse near Salem last month. Right now, 45 of them are ready to go to new homes, although some of them will need special care.

"These dogs are very skinny right now but they are on the road to recovery," said David Lytle with the Oregon Humane Society. "And when you adopt them, you're going to get some education like proper feeding, the types of food (they can eat). They can't just wolf down all the food at once - you have to parcel it out."

The dogs will go up for adoption Wednesday morning, just in time for Valentine's Day.
