TULSA, Okla. - The Tulsa SPCA was recently contacted by a grieving family dealing with an unexpected situation after the death of a family member.
Extended family arrived at the home to find 26 dogs and one cat living in horrible conditions. Overwhelmed, they reached out to the Sheriff’s Office for help.
Due to limited resources and the need for immediate care, the deputies suggested they look for other options. That’s when Tulsa SPCA agreed to help care for the animals.
Staff loaded both of their mobile adoption unit and cruelty investigator’s van and retrieved the 27 animals.
At the shelter, the team worked together to get all the animals vaccinated, fed, watered and safely and comfortably housed. They said two of the dogs tested positive for heartworms.
Those interested in fostering the animals once they are ready may fill out an application online.
