BIXBY, Okla. – More than 70 animals were rescued from an Oklahoma home Tuesday.
McBride was reportedly trying to run an animal rescue from her home.
“Overall, there are not a lot of critical cases, but some of the animals definitely have medical issues that will need to be addressed,” Gina Gardner, president of the Humane Society, told the local newspaper.
Gardner says the woman’s heart was in the right place.
“This is a situation of somebody with a really good heart who loves animals, who wanted to do rescue work,” Gardner said. “They wanted to find animals homes. They just continually took in more and more animals without placing them and turned their home into a haven for rescue dogs that they weren’t equipped to take care of.”
The animals were taken to a local shelter until officials can find homes for them.
McBridge was arrested for animal cruelty.
She has since bonded out of jail.
