FOX23 has learned a Tulsa shelter is taking in dogs to help relieve a rapidly growing dog population in rural Oklahoma.
If you go to tulsapets.com you can see the Tulsa Humane Society has some new faces.
That’s because they took 20 dogs off the hands of a shelter in Tishimingo, Oklahoma.
Evan Fadam has a heart for animals.
“We did a big push for the February fix,” she said.
That push took Fadam and her crew from the Tulsa Humane Society to Tishimingo, where they hosted a spay and neuter clinic, fixing nearly 50 pets for cheap.
While they were there spaying and neutering those pets, they noticed another problem.
The small shelter had too many animals.
“They have less manpower than we do, and they do have as many adopters in the area,” Fagan told FOX23.
Therefore, the Tulsa Humane Society packed up 20 of them and brought them to northeast Oklahoma.
Now, they are looking for homes in Green Country.
Fadam took them in confidence knowing Tulsa will respond.
“This community is really good to us,” she said. “We have lots of potential adopters.”
