The Animal Rescue League of Iowa on Wednesday announced that they, along with the Cedar County Sheriff's Office, rescued 30 dogs from an unlicensed breeder. The ARL said a majority of the dogs are corgis.

In a news release, the ARL said the shelter is at a "critical level" for capacity after taking in the dogs, some of which needed medical treatment.

The ARL had previously said they needed to make room for 150 dogs. They tell KCCI that they had been asked to assist with a separate case in Iowa City but do not have the space to take more dogs in right now. Other shelters across the country were able to help take in those dogs.

The ARL shared photos of rescued corgis being cared for:
