    • Oklahoma animal agencies partnered to shelter pets during severe storms at the end of May.
    • Oklahoma Alliance for Animals, Neighbor for Neighbor and Spay Oklahoma set up a temporary shelter for people who have pets affected by flooding.
    • The agencies are asking the public to donate crates, blankets, pet food, wipes, toys, paper towels and towels.
    • The shelter was located at 575 East 36th Street North (east end of old Northland Shopping Center).
    • Contact Jamee Suarez-Howard at 918-625-8188 for any questions.
    • The Humane Society of Tulsa also sheltered pets at the south entrance of the pavilion building at the Tulsa Fairgrounds.
    • City officials said that shelter would close on June 5. They are reaching out to pet owners to create a retrieval plan. Animals not picked up in time will be transferred to the Humane Society of Tulsa.

    The Humane Society of Tulsa made an emergency evacuation May 24 for 123 animals to send 129 animals to Maryland and Virginia. The evacuation allows for more shelter for local pets without homes during the floods:

    The transfer will allow the shelter to take in another 100 strays.
