The state Veterinary Board has launched an investigation into what some call a puppy mill in Oklahoma County.

The News on 6 first told you about the story out of Harrah last week. The board got a warrant and called in Oklahoma County Sheriff's deputies along with a Humane Society worker from Texas. They searched the home of 77-year old Betty Foster, looking for evidence of a puppy mill.

Authorities say what they found was consistent with those claims. Jay Sabatucci with the Humane Society of the United States: "a lot of feces laying around, a lot of old dog food, a lot of rotting dog food. It's not a very conducive environment for animals or people.”

Last week, some of the animals taken from Foster's home were brought to Bristow for some tender loving care.

Foster's family denies they did anything wrong.
