    SKIATOOK, Okla. - Tulsa deputies arrested a Skiatook woman Thursday in connection with an animal cruelty investigation on Thursday.

    Officials said that 106 dogs, seven cats, four chickens and six other birds were confiscated from Marjorie Satterfield's home.

    Satterfield ran a dog training/kennel business, according to officials. Many of the confiscated animals belong to clients. They were put into the care of the Humane Society of Tulsa. Pet owners can send their information to the organization at fido@tulsapets.org.

    The judge signed an order to release 34 dogs back to their owners on Tuesday. 

    FOX23 got a look at the search warrant, which alleges Satterfield kept the animals in too small cages for 22 horus per day.

    A former employee tipped off officials and said she refused to administer basic vaccinations. 

    She also allegedly refused to spray for ticks and fleas. The former employee say it caused a major infestation. 

    The former employee says Satterfield defrauds her clients by keeping the money they pay her for training them. The employee states she didn’t train dogs and wasn’t licensed to do so.
