Almost 100 dogs were saved from an embattled Bergen County pet store owner's Missouri auction, officials said.

Lucky K9 Rescue took in 13 dogs among the 450 that Just Pups owner Vincent LoSacco auctioned off at an event Saturday .

A Lucky K9 official estimated that seven to 10 other pet rescues at the event.

"I have no comment," LoSacco texted Daily Voice.

LoSacco surrendered his Paramus and Emerson store licenses after police found 67 dogs crated overnight in a van outside of his Route 17 shop.

"The saddest part to me is that [LoSacco] allowed 450 dogs to potentially go into breeding situations that are 10 times worse than his was," said a Lucky K9 board member, who requested to remain anonymous.

"Just because he got caught doesn't mean there aren't people speeding faster than he was," she said. "Who knows where these other ones are going to end up?"

A poodle and golden doodle rescued by Lucky K9 both can't and won't stand or walk out of fear, the board member said.

"All I can say is any of the dogs that made it out of that cycle were very lucky," the board member said.
