TULSA - The Humane Society of Tulsa's Humane Emergency Animal Rescue Team rescued 40 greyhounds Saturday.
The Comanche County Sheriff called on the humane society to make the seizure.
Many dogs were chained without food, water and shelter. Many were found with parasites. Two were deceased, and others in critical condition.
The rescue team took the dogs to its temporary emergency shelter in Bixby.
The shelter was supposed to close in July, but due to so many summer rescues has remained open.
The humane society has assisted law enforcement in rescuing 250 animals since June 1.
It is asking for donations to keep the emergency facility open permanently, and for supplies. Supplies can be dropped off at the facility in Bixby between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at 13290 S. 80th E. Avenue.
