Other Pets: Tulsa Animal Welfare occasionally has small mammals, birds, reptiles and farm animals for adoption.
Each year in Oklahoma, tens of thousands of healthy, adoptable animals are destroyed. Although great progress has been made, fewer than half of the animals that enter the Tulsa Animal Welfare shelter each year will leave there alive. Not only is this a harsh reality, it’s also a drain on resources and tax dollars that could be better utilized to serve our communities.
I just want to walk dogs, can I do that? At the Tulsa SPCA, we do more than walk dogs. We work for the animals and with the animals, to help our shelter pets thrive in a shelter environment while teaching them skills they will need to be adopted and stay in a home. To work with dogs, you will start by learning and practicing basic dog walking and leashing techniques. Then progress to working with the dogs on basic training and obedience, or other volunteer roles.

Most of our animals are housed in foster homes which gives us a better insight into their personality, temperament and training. WE DO NOT SHIP ANIMALS. ADOPTIONS IN TULSA METROPOLITAN AREA ONLY. Rescued 'n Ready Animal Foundation (RnRAF) is a nonprofit organization, formed by experienced rescue volunteers, to help address the pet overpopulation problem in Oklahoma. Based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, RnRAF rescues pets from Tulsa-area kill shelters, and will occasionally take surrendered pets who need to be rehomed by their owners. Potential rescues are considered for general health, and for rehabilitative or manageable behavior issues, such as timidity. On acceptance into RnRAF, each pet is examined by a veterinarian, vaccinated, checked for heartworms (dogs) or feline disease (cats) and parasites. They are treated as needed, then placed in foster care until the right home is found. Dogs receive heartworm and flea/tick preventatives. Unaltered cats and dogs over the age of 4 months, who are not altered when taken in, are spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Puppies and kittens are required to be spayed/neutered at our contracted facility when age appropriate. The adoption fee includes medical care as described above while in the care of RnRAF, including the spay/neuter surgery. Our foster families are the heart of RnRAF, providing a safe, nurturing environment for a rescued pet until adoption occurs. Our volunteers are the hands and feet of RnRAF, sharing their gift of time at RnRAF events, and caring for the animals at weekly adoption events. RnRAF networks with other rescue groups to refer appropriate animals (such as a pure breed to a pure breed rescue) as well as to educate the public on the importance of altering pets, and to direct them to low-cost spay/neuter options.
