Animal Organization Asking for Help After Taking in 30 Chihuahuas
Several dogs were removed Monday afternoon from a residence in north Tulsa belonging to a woman accused of animal hoarding.Members of the City of Tulsa Animal Welfare and the Humane Society of Tulsa removed the more than 30 dogs from the residence Monday afternoon in the 2100 block of E Tecumseh. This was after receiving a call notifying officers of the woman and her animals. According to an official at the scene, the woman had been ticketed for the same offense in the past and wasn't wanting to hand them over to the City. So the Humane Society, a no-kill shelter, was called on scene and helped assist in the operation. Evan Faden with the Humane Society stated this is the fourth animal hoarding case the organization has seen this summer. KTUL was at a previous incident where 47 Jack Russell Terriers were rescued.
Now the dogs are being housed at the Society's location near 61st and Sheridan. Officials are asking the public visit the shelter and help assist in taking care of the animals.
