DETROIT The Michigan Humane Society (MHS) and several partners took possession of approximately 100 chihuahuas Thursday evening which were transported to Michigan from over-crowded animal shelters in California.

If you are interested in adopting any of the dogs you are asked to contact each individual shelter to learn when they will be available.
