  • The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office said Lambert contacted them Thursday night to ask for help unloading trucks of animals in Bixby early Friday morning.
  • Hundreds of animals are set to come to Tulsa from Houston.

The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office said Thursday night that singer Miranda Lambert contacted the agency about getting help with unloading animals coming to Tulsa from flooded areas of Houston.

Two trucks from Houston-area shelters are on the way to the Humane Society of Tulsa's emergency shelter in Bixby. Several Tulsa deputies volunteered to stay late Thursday night to help unload the animals.

Lambert's MuttNation Foundation partnered with the Humane Society to bring the animals to Green Country. They were already in shelters when Harvey hit and freeing up space will allow more room for animals displaced by the storm.

The trucks are expected to arrive around 1 a.m. Friday.
