Two people accused of abusing animals have paid the Tulsa animal shelter part of the cost of boarding their dogs.

The shelter has three dozen pit bulls, which are considered evidence in a dog fighting case from Checotah. The dogs have been here more than a year. They were seized during a dogfighting investigation, and two men were arrested.

The suspects were ordered to pay restitution and have sent the city of Tulsa a check for nearly $800.

The case against them is still in court.
