A non-profit is asking for help after 10 horses and five dogs were seized in an animal cruelty case in Washington County Thursday.
Oklahoma Alliance for Animals is asking for both monetary and in-kind donations for these animals. "The horses and dogs are very weak and severely malnourished," said Jamee Suarez, president of OAA.
The animals will be transferred in the care of OAA and OAA will be working with local rescue groups to ensure the animals get the basic care needed. "We are hopeful that the animals will be relinquished to us at the bond hearing. The date is to be determined. Meanwhile we need the community's help to care for the animals."
Monetary donations are most welcome to help cover medical and feeding costs and can be made online at https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/AnimalAlllianceOK. In-kind donations can be dropped off all next week from 10am to 5pm at the OAA office at 1822 E. 15 St, Suite B, near 15th and Lewis in Tulsa.
The horses need transportation, medical expenses such as dental care and farrier work, feed buckets, halters, shelter, and 10 bales of hay. They also need the following feed: complete horse, senior feed, and rice bran.
The five dogs need volunteers for foster care as well as collars and toys.
All donations are tax-deductible.
