Fourteen dogs were inside the white Dodge cargo van that was parked at an In-n-out restaurant in Redding on Wednesday. Breeds included rat terriers, rottweilers, and yellow labs. They were on their way to the Woofstock show in Vallejo.

One of the dogs, a Rottweiler, is from Sacramento, says the dog’s owner, Tony Carter.
