Projects for Paws, part of The Animal Rescue Site’s $300,000 Shelter+ Challenge — with Petfinder.com, is a special new prize designed to help shelters or rescue groups fund much-needed projects to help the animals in their care (such as facility improvements) or reduce the number of abandoned pets in their community (such as spay/neuter programs). The Grand Project Prize is a $3,000 grant. In addition, four runners-up will each receive a $1,000.
The story that Tulsa SPCA featured is: Rescue Efforts. This is how it reads:
The current poor economy has brought strange bedfellows to the rescue efforts at the Tulsa Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Tulsa SPCA) inTulsa,OKUSA.
By creatively stretching all walls and fences to find ways to help, “rescues” have expanded from the usual dogs, cats, gerbils, birds, and hamsters. Tulsa SPCA has recently housed several malnourished, near-death horses added through our Cruelty Investigator complaint responses. Ever see a horse in an outside dog pen? Fortunately, foster pastures were located to provide adequate space for these equines, and citizens have graciously donated large amounts of hay. New adoption selections were offered and successful.
Recently help from Tulsa SPCA was requested for a hoarder rescue. The expected dogs arrived long after closing and were carefully fed and bedded. Surprised morning staff and awakening regular resident pets were wide eyed to see their outside daytime play areas now housing emaciated, barely standing goats, several critically ill chickens still laying an occasional egg (Big Bird had overtaken the enclosed kitten yard), white rabbits whose painfully thin bodies were less obvious, and a social pig dubbed Jimmy Dean. New adoption methods again succeeded.
Tulsa SPCA is now revamping its Clinic space and intake process, and is seeking funds for ways to aid this newest expansion need. This will allow for the Tulsa SPCA to increase the number of rescue animals served. “We Speak for Those Who Cannot Speak for Themselves”, a guiding Tulsa SPCA belief for almost one hundred years, has never been more true.

What is “Cat”aplAooza you ask? It is a great way for Tulsa SPCA to display wonderful cats and kittens who are anxiously waiting to go home with their new families. Tulsa SPCA recently had a large influx of cats and our biggest dream is for all these wonderful cats to find a place in your heart and home soon.
This has been a hot and difficult summer for many cats, especially ones that had been dumped or abandoned. Many of these cats gave birth shortly after arriving to the Tulsa SPCA or while they were living out in this world of uncertainty. We took in many abandoned cats and cats with litters here at the Tulsa SPCA. All these cats and kittens are all healthy and ready to meet their new families and go home. We are doing a “Cat”apalooza to help encourage families to come our and meet their next family member this month. We are offering many great specials, such as the “cat of the day”
Help us spread the word by clicking on our poster below and passing and posting them around the Tulsa area. What a great way to help s find good homes for our cats and kittens!
