Humane Society of Tulsa asks for donations after saving 46 dogs

The Humane Society of Tulsa said it was desperate for help after fostering dozens of dogs in two major cases of animal neglect and cruelty.

Staff and volunteers are asking for money to pay the dogs’ vet bills, as well as supplies, like puppy pads and paper towels.

The Humane Society of Tulsa rescued 46 dogs in two days, in addition to caring for other dogs abandoned by their owners.

Cleveland County deputies recently investigated a child neglect case and found unlivable conditions for the toddler and more than 40 dogs.

The Humane Society of Tulsa took in 31 of the dogs.

The day before, the Humane Society also helped a case in Creek County, saving fifteen dogs, including a litter of puppies.

“So, in total, 46 in about 48 hours just before the weekend,” said HST Adoption Center Manager Rachel Ward. “It was a very big task to undertake, and fortunately we were able to get them all vaccinated, cozy, as you can see, and now it’s just a matter of rehabilitating them.”

Ward said the agency was carrying out emergency rescues while caring for dozens of current animals and new arrivals.

The Humane Society said it took in 300 owner-abandoned pets this year.

“The overcrowding in Tulsa and Oklahoma in general is so, I mean, it’s really sad,” Ward said. uncastrated and sterilized animals.”

The Humane Society said all shelters and rescue groups hope everyone will consider adoption instead of buying from breeders.

“Every adopted animal creates a space for us to say ‘yes’ to an abandonment or an emergency, so it’s so vital that people understand the importance of adoption,” Ward said.

It will take a few weeks before the dogs that were rescued last week are ready for adoption.

There are always other animals in shelters looking for new homes.
