Dear Facebook Friends...my name is Tom Cat. I am currently in foster care, but would love to find my forever home. I am a little over a year old, I like to cuddle, and I would make a great companion, especially now when people are safer at home. If you are interested in adding me to your family, you can fill out an adoption application (tulsaspca.org/adoptable-cats/) and if approved, arrange for a no-contact pick up. I hope to hear from you soon! ❤️ Tom 🐱 ...

Another great reason to take precautions, as if we needed more.. Being separated from our sweet little dog would be so difficult. Gotta stay healthy so I can continue with uninterrupted dog-cuddles. 💕

It's not about the animal getting sick, its about not knowing how long the virus will last in their fur and on their skin and you could reinfect yourself, or anyone else who might pet the animal.

A lotta crap. I have 2 inside cats plus a dog and 8 cats that stay outside.

No more feeding the feral strays for me.

There is no evidence of zootonic transfer of COVID-19 to pets from humans or from Pets to humans. Quit telling unfounded rumors.

Emphasis on IF YOUR INFECTED.

PUPPY PADS NEEDED! Stewart is just one of several puppies available for adoption at the Tulsa SPCA. He is currently with a foster family, as all of our adoptable pets are. One benefit to fostering a pet from the Tulsa SPCA is that our organization provides all the necessities - food, puppy pads, leash, harness, etc. With so many pets in foster care, the need for supplies increases. If you would like to help out, please consider a donation of puppy pads using our AmazonSmile Charity Wish List located here smile.amazon.com/gp/clpf/ref=smi_se_clpf_rd_clpf. Look for AmazonBasics Dog and Puppy Training Pads, Heavy Duty & Regular when you get to the site. Your purchase will be sent directly to the Tulsa SPCA. If you prefer to donate directly to help us offset the revenue we are losing during this critical time, please use the button below. We cannot do what we do without your support, and we are grateful to each and every one of you! ...
