OKLAHOMA CITY - Some of the small-breed dogs rescued from an Oklahoma City home are ready to be adopted!
Investigators say the owners said they were only trying to help the canines, thinking they were rescuing them.
In Oklahoma City it is illegal to own more than four dogs without a permit.
Animal Welfare mentioned the owners were sad to let the dogs go, but actually thankfully the shelter stepped in to help.
The couple was allowed to keep four of their dogs.
They were cited for not having a kennel permit and not having vaccination records.
OKC Animal Welfare has since announced that 20 of the small-breed dogs that were rescued are ready to be adopted.
The other 18 dogs are mostly puppies, and they’ve been placed into foster care until they’re ready for adoption.
The animals will be made available for adoption Friday, at 12:30 p.m. at the Oklahoma City Animal Welfare Shelter, located at 2811 S.E. 29th St.
Normal adoption policies apply.
