The Tulsa SPCA assisted with hoarding and cruelty case in central Oklahoma.
On Monday, the Tulsa SPCA and the Tulsa County Sheriff’s office rescued about 20 goats, 20 chickens, 8 bunnies, 2 border collies, and a pig. The Tulsa SPCA took these animals to an animal advocate from a Bristow animal sanctuary.
The sheriff’s office is only saying these complaints were filed in central Oklahoma. The case will be investigated as a animal cruelty because of the conditions at the location.
SPCA officials say bunnies were dying as they were being rescued and that the chickens were being housed in a semi and there were several dead animals in with the 20 chickens that were rescued. Officials also say there were 80 goat skeletons on the property in addition to the 20 goats that were rescued.
Lori Hall is the Tulsa SPCA Executive Director, she received a call Sunday from an animal cruelty investigator saying these animals needed to be removed from an animal hoarder's property immediately.
"See how skinny they are," Hall said. "That's just so pathetic."
Hall believes she can find them good homes, but she will have to deworm them and get them healthy enough first.
"I know once we get them in here we can take care of them and get them good homes and that's our goal," said Hall.
A veterinarian will be there Friday to examine all the animals. They are temporally housed at the Tulsa SPCA and will be moved into foster care this week, the animals will then be nursed back to health and be put up for adoption.
If you would like to adopt an animal you can call the Tulsa SPCA (918) 428-7722
