We know this topic is concerning for people everywhere. In order to keep our staff, volunteers, office mates and community members safe, we have implemented the following changes:
Our office will be closed to the public, and our staff will be working from home. We hope to return to normal office hours on Friday, March 27, but we will re-evaluate that decision next week.
- Pet parents in need of donated pet food can text or call (918) 917-9687 or (918) 777-3539. OAA staff members and volunteers will do their best to arrange delivery or pickup (in the Tulsa metro area) within 24 hours.
Messages left on our office phone will be checked daily and calls will be returned as soon as possible. You can also send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or message our Facebook page.
- All OAA adoption and fundraising events have been cancelled for the time being, including the Turley Pet Project.
We appreciate your understanding as we navigate this unique and uncertain time to the best of our ability.
Your help is needed. 💔
This is a rough time for everyone – individuals, animal shelters and rescues, stores, restaurants, you name it.
The coronavirus is also hitting non-profits extremely hard, including Oklahoma Alliance for Animals.
While donations have slowed dramatically, we are still helping animals in our community and in our care. And we absolutely won’t stop. We can’t!
The situation at Tulsa Animal Welfare and surrounding shelters is becoming desperate. OAA, along with the Tulsa SPCA, will continue to help with back-logged spay and neuter surgeries so animals with adoptive homes aren’t taking up space. And we will continue to offer any assistance we can to the Tulsa Animal Shelter.
With the coronavirus closures of stores, entertainment venues and more, we also expect the need for dry cat and dog food to increase because many people have temporarily lost their source of income. Our staff and volunteers (while also working from home) are prepared to make deliveries to individuals in need because no pet should go hungry – not on our watch.
During this time, more than ever, we need kindness, understanding and patience as we all try to get through this together.
Oklahoma Alliance for Animals depends on financial donations to help pets and pet parents in need. We are grateful for any donation – small or large – that you could possibly give. www.animalallianceok.org/donate
