Getting to No More Homeless Pets in Tulsa

Almost 12,000 animals entered the Tulsa Animal Welfare shelter in 2012.

Only 651 were reclaimed by their owners.

Only 2,533 were adopted.

1,056 were pulled by dedicated area rescue groups.

The rest – nearly 7,500 – were destroyed because they didn’t have a home.

We can turn these numbers around.

Cities across the U.S. are doing it every day.

Vigo County, IN. Tompkins County, NY. San Diego, CA. Albemarle County, VA. Washoe County, NV. Dane County, WI.  Bartlesville. Stillwater. Oklahoma City.

How? It takes commitment and hard work from the community. Everyone working together.

    Thanks for the great effort on behalf of Tulsa’s homeless pets. I’ve always thought vets could do more for the spay/neuter cause. How about a free clinic staffed once every month by a different vet to spay/neuter for free one week every month. There are a lot of vets in Tulsa and the surrounding areas.

    Viva – thanks for your input. Actually, we are very lucky to have many vets around Tulsa and the surrounding areas provide low cost services to both the public and rescue partners. We appreciate any assistance vets can provide us as well as speaking to their existing clients about the importance of spay/neuter.
