Humane Society asking for transport funds to move animals out of Oklahoma
TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) —
The Humane Society of Tulsa is asking for help with transport funds in order to move animals out of Oklahoma as shelters face overcrowding.
Many of these dogs came from municipal shelters in the Tulsa area, including Tulsa Animal Welfare, Jenks Animal Control, Sand Springs Animal Welfare and Washington County SPCA.
With intake on the rise, many shelters are at capacity this time of year, and the Rescue flight is the only hope for many of these dogs.
The Humane Society says they must fundraise to cover the cost of care and preparation of these animals before transport, which includes vaccinations, heartworm tests, microchipping and deworming. They are asking for monetary donations in order to continue to save these pets and prepare them for transport on the September flight.
The organization will be at Tulsa Animal Welfare Friday at 10 a.m. rescuing animals for the flight.
