WATSON (AKA BUSTER)
“We did change his name to Watson, as he likes to investigate his new environment and also after a favorite singer of ours, Aaron Watson. Watson has had no issues since becoming our own. He is doing great with our granddaughters and other family members. He and our dog, Diesel, have learned to just “live and let live”. Diesel loves to try to play with him, but for now, Watson is not interested. We love our new addition to our family. He is quite a talker, loves his food, naps and likes to play.”
SOPHIA (AKA MUFFY)
“I actually changed her name to Sophia. She’s doing so well at her new home. My whole family loves her. I take her basically everywhere with me and everyone who meets her falls in love. She does amazing with children and other dogs, and we haven’t had any issues. We’ve been training her and she’s taking well to it. She’s so loved by everyone in our home, and everyone who meets her outside the home. She absolutely loves to play outside & play fetch. Thank you so much for letting my family adopt this fur baby.”
ATHENA & APOLLO (AKA VERA & ZIPPY)
“Vera & Zippy are now Athena & Apollo, and they LOVE each other so much! They truly are BFFs. They are so active and playful. They are such foodies, too! Especially Athena! They have tons and tons of toys, but Athena still steals all the Q-tips!”
NAPU (AKA AUSTIN)
“Just wanted to give you all an update on this handsome guy. He is doing well and very happy. He absolutely loves going for walks! He wakes up so happy greeting us with a wagging tail and letting us know he is ready for his morning walk. He has warmed up to everyone in the house, but still very shy with unfamiliar faces. He is absolutely perfect and we love him to pieces!”
PENNY (AKA SHAKIRA)
“It’s been a year since we brought Shakira (now Penny) home. All the Facebook memories remind me of how tiny she was when we adopted her. She was groomed today and PetSmart took this cute photo of her. I couldn’t help but share it with the staff at the Tulsa SPCA. We are so thankful to have this sweet pup as a part of our family. Thank you for all you do connecting animals with their forever homes.”
Hi. My name is Curry.
Mom and Dad decided it was such a unique name; they let me keep it. I didn’t really know my name at first, but I learned really quick.
I have a human sister who loves me and I get to sleep with her under the covers. I love giving my new family kisses everyday.
My dog brother (Dash) is my wrestling buddy. We love our bedtime wrestling matches. We also like to help mom in the kitchen, you never know when a little piece of food will try to escape her grip and will have to be captured by us.
I am still learning that I have to go outside to potty. The leash still scares me.
I have my chew toy destruction down to less than 24 hours. So Mom bought some chewy sticks which last a little longer. But the other night I discovered where Mom keeps the toilet tissue and proceeded to toilet tissue her room.
Mom and Dad say they have never seen me walk; I run everywhere.
I love my new home.
Paw Hugs & Puppy Kisses,
LULA (AKA DJ)
“We did change DJ’s name to Talula and we mainly call her Lula! I wanted to name her Lulu since she’s quite the character and Rick wanted to name her Talula so we compromised! I can’t even begin to tell you how much joy she has brought to us! She’s so sweet, lovable and adorable with just the perfect amount of sassiness and spunk!! I don’t think either of us have laughed so much in a long time. She keeps us entertained with her fun little personality! Each night about 30 minutes before bedtime, she makes a run in the house. She’s made her own little racetrack in our living room running through the living room and around the furniture at lightning speed! We just crack up! She loves to lie in daddy’s lap and especially loves it when daddy lies in the floor hiding her ball under his chin and squeaking it. She does everything she can to get it lol! He wrestles with her and plays! She loves to lie with momma in bed for about 15 minutes before we crate her for the night and daddy brings her to momma every morning to sleep for a little bit with momma when he leaves for work.”
RU (AKA FARRAH)
“Our little kitty has adjusted very well, and we love her so much. We changed her name from Farrah to Ru, short for Ruby. She enjoys playing with her many toys that are set up throughout our apartment, and playing with her dad. She also likes to take naps with us, and she sleeps in our bed every night. We love watching her grow into the little mischievous cat she is! Thank you so much for all the work y’all do.”
“Warren is absolutely wonderful. He warmed up to me immediately. He’s such a playful happy little guy! He never leaves my side and he is always cuddling me and my boyfriend. I did not change his name, he’s so obviously a little Warren! I don’t know how I lived this long without him! My heart is so full and I’m so happy to have adopted him and give him all of my love.”
MILO (AKA JACK)
“We absolutely adore Jack….we call him Milo now. He is the sweetest thing and loves to play in his big backyard…but he doesn’t like to be left alone for very long! We also let him sleep in bed with us, and he is the best snuggler.”
MELINDA MAE (AKA LEGACY)
“We adopted Melinda Mae (renamed Legacy) from you a couple of weeks ago. Just wanted to update you on her status. Status = made my other kitty(Shore) a very not-lonely-anymore, happy kitty.”
“He is adorable! And we are in love! His name is Duke now. We have been very happy that he is with us! We have an 18 month old Lab female named Daisy and they are getting along very well! They play and run and snuggle most all day long.”
“George has adjusted nicely to our family and is good and healthy. His first Christmas with us, and his favorite spot was under the tree. He loves sleeping on the foot of the bed. George has been the perfect addition to our family. Here is a picture of George helping us wrap presents and trying to get into a small box. We are so glad to have George be a furry family member”
TONKS (AKA ALMOND)
“This is Almond (whom we have renamed Tonks). She is doing wonderfully and starting to emerge from her shell more and more. She is super smart and picking up her training quickly. She is wonderful with our cat (though he is taking time to adjust).
Finally, she is a perfect fit for our family. We are so happy to have her and super appreciate your help on identifying her as the right fit for us. We have taken lots of walks and a couple of hikes and she has discovered the joy of heated blankets.”
ZIGGY (AKA YORK)
“Ziggy, who was previously named York, is such a sweet-hearted little dog! I love him and he loves me. He brings me companionship, friendship, and security. My kids and grandkids are crazy about him too!”
“We are so enjoying Fancy. My husband has had a lot of health issues since we got Fancy. She has been a big help giving him comfort, companionship and a sense of responsibility. She has adapted to the grandkids really well too. So glad we got her. Thank you!”
THELMA (AKA PEARL)
“Thelma (aka Pearl) is such a wonderful addition to our family. She is a real joy and keeps us laughing!!! Wherever I am there she is. ❤❤❤❤❤”
“Tiger Paz is doing well. He has been a joy and a blessing. I adopted him from the SPCA and I am so happy I did. He’s a funny, crazy little kitty. He loves his cat tree. His favorite toy is a ball, and he loves to catch it in mid flight. Also, I keep edible plants available for him whenever he wants a treat. He does have some behavioral issues because of a traumatic kitten-hood. Fortunately, the SPCA saved his life. I work with him daily helping him be the best kitty he can be. With plenty of love and patience he will get there and as we learn from each other we’ll get there together. We would like to wish everyone a very merry & safe holiday.”
“Here’s Gracie with some her new fur-ever family (Gordonna & great grandson Liam.) She is such a sweetheart & is fitting in quite nicely with everyone! So glad we came to the Tulsa SPCA to look at your dogs. You guys go above & beyond the call! THANK YOU!😊”
ABBY (AKA DANISH)
“As you can see Danish has made herself at home. We call her Abby. She is so sweet and follows me everywhere I go. She is eating well and loves to run around the backyard. She has an appointment at the doggie spa Tuesday to get beautified. LOL! She is a wonderful dog and I’m so glad we brought her to her forever home!!”
OTIS (AKA FERB)
“I adopted Ferb, who is now Otis, about a month ago. I wanted to shoot you an update on my awesome little man. He’s the very best dog, and I couldn’t love him more. Otis is just the sweetest! Thank you for your facilitation of getting him into my family.”
EDDIE (AKA DENNY)
“Denny is now named Eddie. He is doing great! He is full of life and tons of energy! He loves playing with his rescue brother, Charlie (the cat). We have come to a realization that we do not favor baths. BUT we love making friends at the dog park. He loves affection! So happy to have Eddie part of the family.”
SIDNEY (AKA BUCKAROO)
“You were also right that he loves the water. I go for a walk with him and his sister every day on a few hundred acres of fields that are full of ponds, creeks, and marsh land, and he never ever passes up the opportunity to jump in. Not only that, but he has taught his little sister to swim, and even let’s her climb on his back in the water when she doesn’t feel like paddling anymore. Thank God we have him, because she’s not fully grown yet, and she’s full of energy. He wears her out a bit.
LILLY (AKA MUPPET)
“Thank you so much for bringing Muppet into my life. She’s been renamed Lilly, and has already become such a comfort in my life! From day 1 when I brought her home, she’s never been shy with me. Always loving and playful and full of cuddles to give. Here’s a few pic in her forever home. Thanks again to everyone at the Tulsa SPCA!”
JOURNEY (AKA MIKEY)
“Mikey is great! He met his Grammy last night and her chihuahua (Chico). They played and got to know each other. He cuddled on the couch and watched TV with us for little while, then heading upstairs for cuddle time with Riley. He fell asleep fast and slept all night without a peep out of him. He was up at 5:30 this morning with us wagging his tail and wanting a belly rub! He’s great, we love him! We changed his name to Journey, since he has had quite the Journey.”
FITZ & PRIM (AKA FOXTROT & SASSY)
“The kittens are doing great! Foxtrot is now “Fitz,” and Sassy is now “Prim.” They just moved right in and were almost immediately comfortable with their new home and new dachshund sister Shelby. Prim is due for some more shots in the next couple of weeks, so I will probably bring them both in to the vet for a general check-up as well. Thank you again for all you do at the Tulsa SPCA, and for helping me to adopt these wonderful additions to our little family!”
IZZY & ZOEY (AKA DUSTY & SELMA)
“Little Dusty I named Izzy, and of course, Selma is now Zoey. They are doing great, playing and cuddling and running constantly. Just wanted you to see their pics and know they are very happy. Once again a special thank you to Morgan, Curtis and John. Keep up the great work!”
“We adopted Sugar two years ago around May 1. My wife felt sorry for the dog when she saw it on your website and the fact that so many people had looked at the dog but no one adopted her. We talked to John Horky, the adoption specialist, and we ended up adopting the 8-year-old dog. I have enjoyed Sugar and she is now a big part of our lives here in Bartlesville. We do lots of walks and jog together. I will never forget John telling us that OLD DOGS ROCK THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU DO! Here is a picture of Sugar and my wife Lu.”
SIMONE (AKA CIDER)
“It has been a week since we adopted our new fur baby Cider, now called Simone. She has nestled her way into our hearts and is truly loved. Our Boxer has come to terms that she is here to stay and is coming around to her being here. She doesn’t like going outside without Simone and doesn’t mind her cuddling up to her. Simone is doing great! She does great in the crate while we are gone and at night. She is also doing great house training. What started out as an impulse decision has turned out to be the best decision! We love Simone dearly!”
PEACHES (AKA TAFFY)
“Here is a little update on Peaches. We have changed her name to Taffy. Sometimes she gets called Taffy the Tongue because the only time she is not licking is when she is asleep. She has just melted right into our family. She loves car rides, squeaky toys, treats, and her little cousin dog, Tiger. She is such a sweet, loving, well-behaved dog that it is hard to believe someone could give her up. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to have such a precious little girl become part of our family.”
WINSTON (AKA DUGAN)
“Good morning, I wanted to update you on Dugan. His name is now Winston, and he has learned his new name very quickly. My daughter and I are absolutely in love with him. I don’t know how anyone could surrender him. He is the most loving and grateful dog I have been around. He is very obedient and hasn’t had a mess in the house since we brought him home. Thank you!”
CHARLIE (AKA ZACK)
“Zack is doing great! We have actually changed his name to Charlie, and he has been such a wonderful addition to our family. He has become best friends with our other dog, Penelope, and he is now her partner in crime around the house. They chase the squirrels in the backyard every day, and he’s finally gotten to where he’s enjoying car rides so we can take him out to Riverside and play disc golf and go on runs. He is is such a sweet and loving dog, and we couldn’t be happier to have found him.”
BUTLER (AKA MILES)
PETE (AKA HOWIE)
“Howie is now known to our family as Pete, like Pistol Pete. Go Pokes! He’s been such a joy to our family. He has a ton of energy and plays great with our three boys. He loves long walks, chewing on his favorite ropes, and taking naps. He’s very affectionate and loves to give the boys big hugs.”
“We love Vincent. He is a smart dog, obedient, calm for a puppy, and great with the kids and cat. Hope his brother finds a forever home soon. If he is anything like Vince, they will be blessed to have him. Thank you for all you do and thanks to the staff and volunteers at the Tulsa SPCA.”
KOOPER (AKA TORETO)
“Things with Toreto are working out just fine. We have changed his name to Kooper. Our other dog Greta finds having a puppy around a bit annoying, but she is coming around. Kooper is learning about the cats, and even forming a sort of friendship with one of them. (the crazy one. Lol) She lets Kooper chase her around the yard, and looks back at him puzzled when he gives up. It’s cute to watch. He is quite the character. Thank you so much for all that you guys do.”
“I just wanted to send an update regarding Kingston. It took him about 5 minutes to get adjusted, and ever since he’s been treating our home as if it’s his kingdom. He been extremely lovable, and EXTREMELY playful. He loves meeting new people, and he loves cuddling up with us in bed. He hasn’t given us any problems, or shown any difficulty settling into our home. He loves to run from one end of the house to the other, so if you hear galloping, that just him doing his laps. We love Kingston so much, thank you so much for allowing us to welcome him into our home!”
RINGO (AKA RUGER)
AUSTIN (AKA CALVIN)
“Galaxy is doing great! She has made my boys so happy. She plays with them and loves to hug and be hugged. The day we brought her home, my son was laying on her watching a movie. She was sound asleep until she heard me sneaking up to take a picture.”
BANDIT (AKA FESTUS)
“I wanted to update you on the addition of Festus (now named Bandit) to our family. He is the sweetest little thing, and he has been such a fun addition to our family! Bandit loves playing with our other dog Murphy, but when they’re not playing together, Bandit is following his humans around, cuddling up in his bed, or running around outside. We have been working really hard with Bandit on teaching him to obey commands and knowing his own name. He and Murphy get confused with who we’re giving commands to, so name recognition has become something we work on daily. He is definitely an energetic little ball of fur, but he has already come so far in the short amount of time that we’ve had him. We are very thankful that we found him, and we’re so happy he is part of our family now – he is definitely well-loved!”
BOOMER (AKA WIZZ)
“On December 19th Wizz and 2 other Tulsa SPCA dogs came to Bishop Kelley High school to help relieve our stress about the approaching finals. When I (Abbie) went to see the furry friends I did not expect to meet such sweet dogs, epically Wizz. Despite all the commotion in the Commons area he was calm,cool, collected, and eager to snuggle. He stole my heart that day. I persuaded my parents to fill out the adoption papers for him that same week on Thursday after my mom meet him. Then we brought him home.
Since he’s come home we’ve renamed him Boomer Watson but we call him Boomer for short. From what we can tell he loves his new home. He has his favorite toy, a plush snowman nicknamed Snowy, with him all the time. He’s super sweet and is all around the best dog we could have hoped for. He’s been learning some tricks and once he masters those we think trying out agility training might be good, epically since he’s got the most energy in the family. He likes going on walks and exploring new places like my barn.”
“I wanted to send some pictures of our new family member, Magnum, adopted on New Year’s Eve 2016. He’s settling in perfectly with our family! He gets along fabulously with our 2 dogs, he adores our children (which my husband and I can’t believe), and he loves getting in the sink when the water is running. Who knew?!?
Thank you for allowing us to adopt him. We hope you have a very Happy 2017 filled with lots of adoptions.”
“We are thrilled to have Branson be a part of our family. He settled in quickly. We took him to Petco and he picked out his own toys. I even tried to get him to pick something different but he was pretty set on his first choice. We will be enrolling him and us in a obedience class soon. He is such a wonderful loving dog, we feel like we are the blessed ones to have him be a part of our family.”
“Hello! We adopted Bob back in September. He is doing GREAT! We love him so much, and he has filled such a huge hole in our hearts ? He LOVES his toys! LOL. Santa brought him a toy and he has carried it around all day.”
“I adopted She-ra a couple of months ago. She is a wonderful addition to our family and is very smart and protective, but other times she can be such a baby. She really loves being an inside dog, and I think she loves the car rides to the park than the park itself. She was labeled as cat/ dog aggressive, but has made many friends with nearby dogs and even cats from next door. Best decision we ever made.”
RIVET (AKA BEETLEJUICE)
“We wanted to update you guys on formerly, “Beetlejuice,” now “Rivet.” He is doing great and he is a busy busy boy! He loves to play with the kids. He has not had any potty accidents and was crate trained from day one! He’s awesome and super sweet. His favorite thing to do is go on walks/runs. Thanks, again!”
BO & LUKE (AKA SPOOF & LAMBERT)
“We adopted brothers Spoof and Lambert last weekend. We have renamed them Bo and Luke. They settled in very quickly and have already given my daughter Mabrey, my wife Stacy, and I hours of entertainment. They are so playful and loving and seem to love our home and their new family. Thank you again for everything and God Bless you all at Tulsa SPCA.”
“Radio is doing great! He is getting used to having lots of room to run. He’s curious and very affectionate. We are all thrilled to have him as part of the family. Thank you again for helping us to bring him home!”
RUSTY (AKA ROY)
“Rusty (formerly Roy) seems to have settled in. You all said he is a Blue Healer mix. Well, this cow dog loves his 160-acre homestead! His schedule: Morning: Go to work with dad; Afternoon: Torment cows; Evening: Chill. Thanks SPCA, John, and everyone who helped!”
HENNESSY (AKA RAIN)
“I wanted to give you a quick update on Hennessy (former name Rain). She is doing extremely well and has made herself at home. She has already lined out the boys and is enjoying all the love and playing. She is such a wonderful little lady. Thank you for all you do!”
“Dash is very smart and a fast learner! He’s pretty much potty trained and waits by the door when he needs to go. We are trying to get him well socialized with people and other animals so he goes everywhere with either me or my husband.
He’s met so many people and other pups in his short time with us. He’s been to our home obviously, we’ve had friends stay over and bring their big Labradoodle. Dash has been to our local pizza place and hung out on the patio with all of our friends, he’s been to my moms house and met her dogs, he’s been to Stephens parents house and met their pugs, and he was in our wedding last week! And now he’s on our honeymoon with us in Taos, NM!
He LOVES hiking! He chews quite a bit so we’ve loaded him up with bones, squeaky toys etc because he chewed through his first collar, he chewed our friend Charlie’s phone charger, and he’s chewed through both his food and water bowl so we need to get metal ones. Also, we changed his name to Dash and he has lived up to it! The other day he found the perfect opportunity and “Dashed” into a five star restaurant and ran through about four different conjoining rooms while me, my husband, and several workers chased him until he couldn’t go anymore and reached the back of the bar. Everyone thought he was sooooo cute, though. Even the restaurant goers so nobody was really worried about it! LOL”
HOSS MOSES HOOD
“Hoss Moses Hood was adopted on October 1st! He’s starting to settle in nicely! His potty schedule is a little hard to follow, but we are working on it! He’s too scared to go on a car ride still but I think he will be ok with it soon enough… So far, he seems to love his new home. Of course, he still has his monkey, plus a couple new ones haha! Here are some pictures. Thank you again!”
“I am Jewels, and I was officially adopted on October 6, 2016. I wanted to let u know I ? my new home! I ? my sissy, Doxie Gretal, soooooo much! As you can see, we enjoy napping together. My mommy & daddy love having me around, too! They take me on daily walks, brush me everyday, and my absolute favorite thing is going “bye-bye!” in our car. I’m starting to be more playful and love to have fun, but I’m always ready at the end of the day to snuggle up and call it a night!”
HAZEL (AKA LA GERVAIS)
Just sending an update! Hazel (formerly La Gervais) is doing great! She’s very smart, loving and highly trainable. She loves to go swimming at the lake and hiking. She also loves to play at the dog park and gets along great with her brother Bubba. At the end of the day she loves to snuggle. She ended up being house trained and mostly crate trained when I got her which was great. I was a little worried when I first got her because she came from Louisiana and had only been at the SPCA a few days, but she turned out to be a great dog and I couldn’t be more happy that I adopted her.
MILA (AKA ZENA)
Just wanted to follow up and give an update on our girl. We renamed her Mila and she now comes by name. She is a very curious, playful and cuddly girl. She is very smart. She has learned to sit, lay down and we are just about done with potty training. She is probably the most curious dog I’ve met! Anything she can get into, she does. She follows her nose and likes to catch bugs and eat them yuck! She is doing well and is a very happy dog. She fits perfectly in our home.
Just wanted to update you on my little furry friend, Rosie! She is already very spoiled. She is settling in well, and she has already picked up on a couple of commands in sign language such as sit and stay. She and Oscar are getting along well; however, she runs him until he cant’s run anymore. LOL! She is doing awesome, and I am so glad Rosie is a part of our family. Thank you guys so much for all you did!
BUDDY (AKA ROWDY)
Rowdy’s new name is Buddy! He’s doing really well.. he gets along great with cats, dogs and other people. Also, Buddy figured out how to open the sliding glass door the other day (he’s really smart).
We are so happy to have Magnolia. She is working out great! She has one of the best personalities I have ever seen. In a day or two our two dogs had accepted her and our other cat is getting used to her. She is just as cute as can be. Glad we can give her a good home.”
I wanted to give you and the SPCA an update on Cowboy, who we adopted August 9, 2016. He is fitting in perfectly with our family! He loves playing tug of war and wrestling with his new buddy, Callie. He has made himself at home, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. I would like to thank you and your staff for helping us bring this guy into our home!
Today is the one year anniversary of Annie being with us. She is not the frightened timed dog that arrived a year ago. She belongs here and if you don’t believe it just ask her. The couch is hers and she takes full advantage of it but she doesn’t get on any other furniture. We really enjoy having her with us. She loves the car and wants a ride every time we go out. She is our dog.
“I’m writing you to let you know that after three months, Bonnie has really settled into her new home. She had a short adjustment period, being out here in the country and having plenty of wildlife to make her a little crazy, but she’s really loving it now. It turns out she is fully housebroken and crate trained and even knew most of the basic commands! She has quickly become a member of the family and everyone that meets her absolutely loves her!”
“I really like my new place and my new companion Wylie. It took a few days for Wylie to warm up to me, but he likes me better everyday now. Thank you guys so much for all you did for me while I was there- I’m doing good here too and wanted to tell you hello.”
“I wanted to update you on Wally. I met Wally at the SPCA Dog Walking event at Guthrie Green, where I had volunteered to walk the dogs over lunch. A volunteer told me that Wally had been with the SPCA a few months and had sisters with him who were adopted earlier.
Wally came home a few days later, after meeting my husband, and meeting our corgis to ensure they would get along well. He is doing great at home, playing with his new friends, enjoying toys, air conditioning, and lots of belly rubs.
Without the dog walking program, I would have never met Mr. Wally. I wasn’t looking for another dog, but when I met Wally, I knew he was meant to be with our family. Wally has brought fun and excitement to our corgis. He absolutely warms my heart when he lays on his back and let’s his floppy ears fall to the ground. “
