Gina Gardner, the president of the Tulsa Humane Society, said many of the dogs were elderly and had been bred over and over again for years. The main breeds rescued were poodles, chihuahuas, and Yorkshire terriers. The older couple, who owned the dogs, had contacted the organization and had reached out for help when the situation of caring for the dogs had become overwhelming.
Many of the older dogs will be facing surgery. The dogs were living in horrible conditions.
According to Tulsa Sheriff's Officer Travis Jones, the couple will not be facing criminal charges.
The Facebook post about the rescued dogs who will be available for adoption stated:
"These precious pups are going to need a lot of care. Many of them are seniors so we are really looking for adopters with a big heart for special need pets. PLEASE stay tuned for more information and details as the days continue. It's going to be a long journey and we sincerely appreciate your support!!"
