Twenty-five Jack Russells and a number of other breeds including Cocker and Springer Spaniels, Terriers, Beagles and Labradors were found inside boxes in the back of the vehicles, which were stopped on the Old Malahide Road in Coolock on Tuesday afternoon.
Gardaí arrested two men in their 20s and 30s at the scene.
The animals have now been taken into quarantine and safety with the Dublin Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, while investigations continue.
