TUALATIN, OR (KPTV) -

Two dozen dogs that were rescued in southern California and Mexico will arrive in Oregon on Friday to find permanent new homes.

The dogs will be taken in by Oregon Dog Rescue in Tualatin via START, a nonprofit organization that transports death row dogs to shelters in the Pacific Northwest.

Most of the arriving dogs were saved from euthanasia and one was rescued from the streets of Tijuana.

The dogs were all either at a shelter in Riverside, California or on the streets and picked up by people who connected with START to get them to safety.

Oregon Dog Rescue workers said some of the transformations once the dogs begin receiving care are remarkable.

The arriving dogs are all sizes. They will be adoptable after a vetting process that usually takes seven to 10 days.

The group has created a gallery on their Facebook page that shows all of the dogs available for adoption.

Oregon Dog Rescue, located at 6700 Nyberg St., placed 700 dogs in homes last year.
