BRISTOW, Okla. — With the help of Lighthorse police and a local animal rescue, over 100 dogs and three chickens are on their way to a better life.

On Tuesday, the Bristow Barnyard Animal Rescue assessed the dogs they removed from a property where the owner refused to neuter or spay them three years ago when he had 15 dogs.

When the animals were taken on Sunday, there were 106. Puppies two days old to dogs as old as 14 are now staying at a facility in Mounds, Okla.

The animals will continue to get screenings and treatment so they can be adopted, but volunteers said it will take a while for most of them.

"There was not a single healthy animal we took from here," said Beth Roberts, Bristow Barnyard Animal Rescue. "It's emotionally devastating. I still, even though it was on Sunday, I still feel the affects of all the sickness and sadness and pain in these little guys eyes."

Currently, there are no charges against the owner.
