Ellen Degeneres' Fight Goes on

People is reporting that the fight for Iggy is far from over for Ellen Degeneres.

On her show set to air Wednesday, the show host, 49, continues her plea, "It's become so insane ... the dog just needs to go to the family." She stays composed as she goes on to say the fight should not be about anything but putting the dog in a loving home.

The Mutts and Moms rescue agency, however, is standing its ground – despite receiving death threats after DeGeneres broke down in tears on Tuesday's show, the Associated Press reports. Vanessa Chekroun and Marina Batkis, who run the agency, believe they are doing what's best for Iggy, says a spokesman for the pair.

"[Batkis] doesn't think this is the type of family that should have the dog," said Keith A. Fink, an attorney who does not represent the agency but is acting as a spokesman. "She is adamant that she is not going to be bullied around by the Ellen DeGenereses of the world ... They are using their power, position and wealth to try to get what it is they want."

But DeGeneres's publicist Kelly Bush says the TV host has the best intentions. "It's very upsetting to hear that someone is getting those kind of calls," Bush told the AP. "Ellen just wants the dog reunited with the family."
