TULSA - The Humane Society of Tulsa is still hoping to find homes for 35 Jack Russell Terriers that were handed over by a breeder on Wednesday.
Twelve of the dogs have been adopted out of the 47 that were taken in by the organization.
"It broke our hearts to hear of all these dogs that were up here," Paul Knight said after adopting one of the terriers.
The dogs were turned in to the Humane Society after the breeder decided not to renew their breeder's license.
"This is quite an undertaking for the Humane Society of Tulsa. So, we're definitely looking for people to help us." Dan Canfield said.
Knight said his family decided to adopt a companion for their 9-year-old Jack Russell.
Most of the dogs appeared to be in good condition and are ready for adoption after being treated for fleas and ticks, as well as spay and neutering.
"We really want to thank our volunteers and community for stepping up to the plate," Humane Society worker Kayla Davidson said.
To contact the Humane Society call 918-495-DOGS. The Humane Society of Tulsa is located at 6232 E. 60th St. in Tulsa.
