Dogs Seized in Wagoner Hoarding Case Now Fully Vetted, Spayed/Neutered, and Ready for Adoption Saturday, June 18
Adoption Event Saturday, June 18, 11 am to 3 pm at Midtown Kia, 4747 S. Yale in Tulsa
(Tulsa) Dogs rescued recently from a Wagoner hoarding case have been fully vetted, spayed/neutered, and are ready for adoption into loving, indoor homes with forever families.
These dogs will be at the Oklahoma Alliance for Animals adoption event on Saturday, 11 am to 3 pm, at Midtown Kia, 4747 S. Yale in Tulsa. Former OU Coach Barry Switzer will be there to help these dogs find loving homes. All adopted dogs come with an OAA doggy goody bag, pet I.D. tag and microchip!
Free pet I.D. tags will be available to pet owners who attend. Pet I.D. tags help dogs who run from fireworks find their way back home, so they will be offered to the public at no charge. The number of free tags per person may be limited within reason, but we do want to make sure that every dog has an I.D. tag for the Fourth of July season. Tags can be made and collected onsite or mailed, whichever is most advantageous for you.
Donations are also being accepted at the event and online to help pay the nearly $5,000 in veterinarian and boarding costs for these dogs. Online donations can be made at http://animalallianceok.org/support/donate/ (select Wagoner fund).
The Oklahoma Alliance for Animals supports the amazing and dedicated work of rescues and shelters throughout Oklahoma – including their ongoing efforts to find loving, indoor homes for animals. Please check out our list of adoption events in your area.
The Adopt-A-Little Okie adoption event happens the last Saturday of each month at Tulsa Animal Welfare and the Broken Arrow Animal Shelter.
Please adopt animals from shelters and rescues. Never buy from a breeder – that only perpetuates the sad and expensive problem of creating homeless puppies and kittens. Be responsible and kind. Thanks!
