Humane society rescues 100 dogs from home Published: March 5, 2014

SAPULPA -- More than 100 small breed dogs were rescued Wednesday from a puppy mill situation in the Sand Springs area, according to the Tulsa Humane Society.

The dogs, primarily elderly dogs which had been repeatedly bred, were living mostly unattended in the residence, Humane Society president Gina Gardner said. Gardner said the dogs belonged to a couple in their 60s who reached out to the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office for help when the number of dogs became unmanageable.

Many of the dogs, mostly poodles, Chihuahuas and Yorkies, are elderly and have dramatic medical needs, including needing immediate surgery, Gardner said.
