The van was located at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday morning in a wooded area near Valley Drive in Redding.
The dogs are being moved to Haven Humane, where they will be checked, but they appear to be in good health, said authorities.
Some of the dog owners have been reunited with their dogs. Later the dogs will be released either to their owners or to the dog trainer, Tony Carter.

REDDING, Calif. — A Seattle dog trainer on his way to a Vallejo show stopped for lunch in Redding. When he went into the In and Out Burger on Dana Drive, the top-dogs and his van were stolen.
We have a photograph of the missing van, and pictures of some of the missing dogs. They all belonged to clients of trainer Tony Carter, who left his van running as he stepped into the In and out Burger Wednesday afternoon at 1:19 p.m. He said it was less than three minutes later that the culprit was caught on surveillance video driving off in the van.
Redding Police quickly sent out an investigative team to search for the missing van and the missing dogs.
The stolen van was a 2018 Dodge ProMaster Cargo Van with Washington license plate number BKD2048.
Some of the dog breeds that were taken include rat terriers, golden labs, and rottweilers.
Please contact Redding Police at (530) 225-4200 if you have any information regarding the whereabouts of the van or the dogs.
