About 40 dogs described as Cavalier King Charles spaniels were found early Wednesday on a rural road in Denton County, a news release from the Humane Society of North Texas states.

The dogs were being evaluated Wednesday to determine which might be put up for adoption, according to the news release.

The Sheriff’s Department called the agency for help after the dogs were found about 1 a.m. Wednesday, the news release stated. Neither the department nor the humane society returned calls seeking details.

“This comes after only two nights ago, 40 Maltese dogs were dumped,” the news release stated. “HSNT believes these animals to have been dumped by a puppy mill in the area, but this is not confirmed at this point.”

The spaniels were at the society’s shelter, 1840 E. Lancaster Ave. in Fort Worth. A special adoption event is set for Sunday. For information, call 817-332-4768.
