LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A second pet shop owner is claiming 27 puppies rescued from a Las Vegas business that authorities say a woman and a man tried to torch.

Attorney Amy Chelini said Monday that Prince and Princess pet store owner Donald Thompson wants to turn the dogs over to a nonprofit animal rescue group called A Home 4 Spot.

Clark County officials say they're reviewing Thompson's ownership claim.

With store co-owner Gloria Lee in jail awaiting trial, Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said last week he wanted to turn the animals over to the non-profit Animal Foundation in Las Vegas.

Lee and Kirk Bills are being held on arson, conspiracy and attempted animal cruelty charges.

They're accused of trying to torch the store early Jan. 27 for the insurance money.
