NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – An Oklahoma animal shelter is searching for new homes for 65 dogs, including 22 puppies, which were seized from a mobile home in Norman.

Norman Police Capt. Tom Easley says the city’s animal welfare department received an anonymous tip last week about a home overrun with dogs, including poodles, Shih Tzus, Pomeranians, Pekingese, Chihuahuas and spaniels.

Easley says two of the adult dogs are pregnant.

Animal welfare officers say all 65 of the animals appear to be adoptable. They say the city’s animal shelter is waiving its typical adoption fee of $60 to make room for the dogs.

No charges have been filed in the case.
