BOISE -- A dozen pit bulls rescued from a southern Idaho dog-fighting operation will be made available for adoption at the Idaho Humane Society.

The Idaho Humane Society alongside non-profit organization, Bad Rap, finished evaluations of over 60 pit bulls that were rescued from Oneida County in the wake of a triple homicide last week.

Out of that group, they say about 12 pit bulls will be available for adoption in the next two weeks. Humane Society officials say the first group of dogs released for adoption will be based on the animals' behavioral evaluations and continued medical monitoring.

The Idaho Humane Society will have adoption information and online applications to adopt at their website.

Bad Rap is based out of Southern California and is known for their assistance in evaluating pit bulls rescued from NFL quarterback Michael Vick in 2007.

History of the pit bull rescue

Investigators of a triple homicide in Holbrook, Idaho found 64 pit bulls on the property in what appeared to be a pit bull fighting operation and marijuana growing operation.

The pit bulls were loaded into trailers and truck beds and taken to Boise for further evaluation by the Idaho Humane Society.
