TULSA, Okla. – Officials say 40 Greyhounds are on the road to recovery after being rescued from terrible conditions in Tulsa.

On Saturday, the Humane Society of Tulsa was asked to help the Comanche County Sheriff’s Office in rescuing dozens of Greyhounds from a  home.

The humane society says many of the dogs were chained, were living in ‘deplorable’ conditions, and some did not have food, water or shelter.

Workers with the humane society also say the dogs were covered in parasites.

The pups are now being held at the humane society’s temporary shelter in Bixby, which was actually supposed to close at the end of July.

The society is now working to keep the shelter open permanently, but is in need of donations.
