TITUSVILLE, Fla. -

Nearly two dozen dogs saved from "doggy death row" will soon be up for adoption on the Space Coast. 

Twenty dogs are being transported Wednesday morning from Miami-Dade Animal Services to the SPCA in Titusville, part of a partnership between the two groups.

The dogs were going to be euthanized because of overcrowding at animal services in Miami.

Once the dogs arrive, they will be groomed, spayed or neutered and vaccinated before being placed with new families.

Images of the dogs were not immediately available.
