CARTER COUNTY, OK -- People in one Carter County town are upset after they say several dogs froze to death at the local animal shelter.  

People in Healdton say a group of puppies froze at the city shelter.  

They say their wasn't proper bedding on the ground and that the puppies had to lay on the concrete floor during freezing temperatures.  

Additionally they say there's no heater in the facility.  

The issue was brought up at a recent city meeting.  

City manager Charlie Clark says he didn't know about the deaths until he heard about it at that meeting.

"If there's been any lack of consideration for the dogs it's not going to happen again," Clark said.    

Clark says he's decided to close the shelter.  

As for the dogs, we have learned an area veterinarian did diagnose one of them with frostbite and a treatable form of heart worm. We have also learned all of the dogs have now been adopted.
