    More than 100 rescued dogs will call the greater Delaware area home after they were flown in on an airplane from Arizona.

    The plane carrying 165 pups touched ground at the Wilmington Newcastle Airport Saturday ahead of a two-day adoption event, which will take place Dec. 8 and 9.

    More than 1,000 animals will be up for adoption at the Delaware State Fairgrounds in Harrington, Delaware.

    Airlifted from Phoenix, these at-risk pups will be part of the Brandywine Valley Second Chance Program's Mega Adoption Event.
