TULSA -- Dozens of dog owners around Green Country are wondering if they'll ever see their dogs again.

Tulsa County Sheriff's deputies found 106 dogs and other animals at Marjorie Satterfield's home in Skiatook on Thursday.

She owns a service dog training business, Glad Wags Service Dogs, in South Tulsa.

Bonnie Jameson is a current client. She had a 6-month-old German Shepherd and gave him to Satterfield so he could be trained as a service dog.

Jameson said, "I just found her literally out of the newspaper and did some research on her. She's got two beautiful websites with lots of videos that show what she's doing."

Her websites have accolades and nothing less than five-star reviews from customers. 2 Works for You has even done news stories on Marjorie Satterfield and her service dog training business.

Jameson claims she spent upwards of $10,000, her entire life savings, on the dog and the training.

She explained, “(Marjorie) told us was she trained the dogs during the day the training facilities and she took them home with her at night. That sounded like a perfect set up."

You can imagine the shock Jameson felt when she saw pictures of more than 100 crates stacked three and four high throughout Satterfield’s home in Skiatook.

Jameson said, “I have a German Shepherd. A German Shepherd cannot stay in a kennel like that. No dog can."

Satterfield was booked into jail on more than 100 counts of animal cruelty. Jameson said every single one should be processed.

But she isn't sure if her dog was even in that house. Jameson was told she would get her dog back in November and Satterfield continued to push back the month all the way to March. Her dog's fate started looking bleaker and bleaker.

When asked how confident she is that her dog is alive and that she'll get the dog back, Jameson said, “I'm not at all. Not at all.”

Still hopeful, she reached out to the Humane Society of Tulsa who has all of the dogs while the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office processes them as evidence.

Jameson said, “I feel sorry for the other people that are in the situation because i don't know how many are in there."

After we spoke to Jameson, we were told she got a call from Marjorie Satterfield who claimed the German Shepherd is alive and well at the humane society.

The Sheriff's Office says it could be at least another week before the dogs can be re-claimed by their owners.

Dog owners who dropped their dog off to Satterfield or Glad Wags are asked to email a picture and contact information to fido@tulsapets.com.
