About 90 dogs found abandoned in southern Oklahoma

Ardmore_Animal rights groups are again calling for state laws to regulate dog and cat breeders after about 90 dogs were found abandoned in southern Oklahoma.  A rancher found the dogs near Marietta and took them to an animal hospital.

About 65 are now being cared for by Southern Oklahoma Animal resources in Ardmore and the other 25 were sent to a shelter in Texas.  Oklahoma doesn't require inspections and has not set standards for dog- and cat-breeding operations.

A bill requiring inspections of breeders who sell more then 25 puppies each year failed in the legislature earlier this year.  State representative Lee Denney says she'll offer a similar bill next year if she's re-elected.
