Prosecutors have charged 2 people with cruelty to animals after dozens of dogs were rescued from a suspected puppy mill in Sequoyah County.

The arrest report said deputies went to the home of Tamara Turman and Wesley Chronister last week for a domestic violence call when they noticed at least 20 dogs inside the home in bad shape. The report said the home smelled of urine and feces.

Deputies said they seized 84 dogs from the property and 30 of them were in bad shape.

Turman and Chronister have both been charged with 30 counts of cruelty to animals.

Chronister has also been charged with neglect of a vulnerable adult.
