LEBANON, Tenn. -

More than 100 cats, dogs and parrots rescued from a property in Kentucky are finding foster homes around Middle Tennessee.

The dogs have been held in a warehouse in Lebanon ever since they were seized from an alleged puppy mill on September 19.

"It was a stereotypical puppy mill," said Scotlund Haisley, president of the Animal Rescue Corps. "And there's no such thing as a humane puppy mill."

Throughout the weekend, dozens of foster families have given temporary homes to the animals.

About a third of the 128 animals have been picked up.  The rest are expected to find temporary homes in the next two days.

Debbie Morrow has been a foster parent for Agape Animal Rescue for more than a year.  She took home two dogs from the Lebanon shelter on Sunday.

"I'm a big animal lover," Morrow said. "These dogs are so appreciative of everything, so I can't wait to show them a real house."

For adoption information, Animal Rescue Corps asks people to stay updated via their Facebook page.
