ARF does not pick up stray dogs, cats, puppies, or kittens. The City of Tulsa will pick up strays and some other rescue groups might assist you. Go to TulsaPets.com for a list of area breed and rescue groups.
It is against Tulsa pet ordinances for you to have a dog or cat older than 6 months that is not spayed or neutered.
Please help us save more dogs from being destroyed at kill shelters by spaying and neutering your pets. Unless you are a licensed breeder, you should not have an intact dog or cat. Be part of the solution instead of part of the problem!
What Parents and Children Should Know!
If you are adopting a dog or already have a pet in the house, please look at this video (Preventing Dog Bites to Kids) to prevent your child and pet from injury and heartbreak. Did you know that 77 percent of all dog bites happen with family pets or with pets belonging to friends? Watch and learn.
We rely on public donations. Please click on the bone to help save more furry friends today! Thank you.
