NORMAN, Oklahoma -

An investigation is underway after Norman police seize 65 dogs, some pregnant, from a mobile home on the southeast side of town. Dozens of them are puppies, barely a week old.

They were happy to see the News 9 crew when News 9 paid them a visit, barking and wagging in animal shelter pens. But believe it or not, all 65 of the small dogs lived inside a mobile home off of Frontier Circle.

It was an anonymous tip that led police there. They served the search warrant and saved the spaniels, toy Shih Tzus, miniature poodles, Pomeranians and chihuahuas.

“Even though they’re animals, they still need to be treated with kindness and compassion and a reasonable amount of affection – every living being deserves that,” Norman police Capt. Tom Easley said.

When animal welfare got the dogs, they were in decent health. However, two of them are pregnant and could deliver any day. And 22 of them are puppies, ranging from 2 days to 1 week old.

No charges have been filed, but police said that could happen later in the week. The resident is cooperating with authorities.

“This one appears to be along the lines of a puppy mill. In other words, we’re making them to sell them,” Easley said.

She didn't want to go on camera, but the former dog owner told News 9 that's not true.

Authorities believe all 65 dogs will eventually be adoptable, but in the meantime the shelter is bursting at the seams. This was the second massive seizure in two weeks in Norman.

In August, 39 cats and dogs from a hoarding case came into the shelter.

“It really just, more or less, disappoints me personally and professionally,” Easley said.

The shelter is now doing all adoptions at no cost while it gets a handle on the situation, waiving the $60 fee to find its animals good homes.
