The Tulsa SPCA collecting relief supplies for Creek County Animals.
Tuesday, August 7th, 2012, the Tulsa SPCA with the cooperation of Drysdales will be collecting animal relief supplies for the fire victims inCreekCounty. OurMobileAdoptionCenter, MAC, will be parked on the Drysdale parking lot from 7:30am to 6:00pm; located at3220 S. Memorial Road.
The fires inCreekCountyhave been devastating for all involved. Tulsa SPCA realizes that some families have lost their animals, but are springing into action to help assist families that need help the animals that were saved. The MAC will be parked on the Drysdales parking lot from 7:30am to 6:00pm to allow people to drive by and drop off donations. Our goal is to fill the MAC completely up with supplies, like we did for theJoplintornado relief. We plan to drive the MAC to the fire zones on Thursday. We are working with Oklahoma Alliance for Animals, OAA, to determine the areas most in need of supplies.
Tulsa SPCA will be accepting monetary donations to cover supplies that are not donated on Tuesday , such as medical and others. You can drop off money at the MAC tomorrow, make an online donation at www.tulsaspca.org (be sure and memo it as “Creek County Relief”), or mail a check to Tulsa SPCA at 2910 Mohawk Blvd, Tulsa OK, 74110 and memo the check as “Creek County Relief”. We will make sure the money goes to the animals in Creek County.
Tulsa SPCA is also partnering with OAA and other organizations to develop a foster list. If anyone is willing to open their doors for both domestic and livestock, please email your information to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be sure and get you name added to the growing list that OAA has started. Information needed is your name, address, phone number(s), and the amount and type of animals you can house.
Tulsa SPCA was established in 1913 and is 100 percent donation supported. We do not receive any government orUnited Wayfunding; plus SPCAs are not national organizations who funded by a larger entity, such as ASPCA.
Oklahoma Alliance for Animals is aTulsabased non-profit collaborative organization established in 2004. OAA’s primary purpose is to bring together the people and resources needed to overcome pet homelessness, abuse and neglect.
