A large group of homeless animals were involved in an unfortunate accident in New Hampshire today, but fortunately they seem to be okay.

According to NECN, a van filled with dozens of animals overturned on I-95 in Portsmouth Thursday afternoon between Exits 5 and 6.

The 55-60 puppies and cats were in cages and seemed to escape major injuries. Only one of the two people in the van had to be transported to the hospital for minor injuries.
