More than 30 dogs living in disgusting conditions.
Our cameras followed Tulsa animal control as they took 25 dogs to the Tulsa Humane Society.
FOX23 has learned neighbors have been complaining about the home near East Tecumseh and North Lewis Avenue for more than six years filling dozens of complaints about at least 35 dogs living in filth.
"I've never seen anything like it before," said Evan Fadem, the Tulsa Humane Society manager.

Feces could be seen around the yard and Tulsa animal control says they believed it looked the same inside the home.

FOX23 found out the city allows five animals but no more than three dogs at a home.
The pet owner didn't want to show her face but did show how much she loved the animals by giving dozens to the shelter for adoption.

“They give me more love than my son. My son doesn't give me any love," she said.
"When I lost my husband it just snowballed. That was my world my husband was my world."

The Humane Society says she took better care of her dogs than she did herself.
They say most of the animals looked OK.

"I have some that I've had for 10 and 12 years. How can you do that? How can you say those have to go? I can't. No," she said.

"For her to sign those over to us, she made a huge step in the right direction. We are working with her to get the rest spayed and neutered," said Fadem.

The Humane Society says the dogs are covered in fleas and ticks. They will need help getting the animals ready for adoption. If you would like to help, you can reach them at 918-495-3647.
