The sheriff's office says 34-year-old Carolyn Vaughn and 39-year-old Wesley Griner were booked into jail Friday after being charged with cruelty to animals. 

Nowata County Sheriff's deputies and the City of Nowata animal control officer found the dogs living in what they said were horrible conditions.  

Deputies told The News On 6, the bottoms of some of the pens were made of wire, so investigators say many lived above a mixture of feces, urine and spoiled food. They also say many of the dogs were malnourished and dehydrated. 

Vaughn and Griner each posted bond of $2,500 with the next court hearing set for July 7.
