Found A Stray?

Visit this site for information on what to do.

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 for a list of area breed and rescue groups.

Don't Litter!

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!

Need a Speaker?

ARF volunteers are ready to address your group about pet overpopulation and how it affects our city, how ARF works to place homeless pets with responsible pet owners, the importance of our foster home program, how to prepare to take care of your pets before, during, and after a disaster strikes, and the various activities available to our ARF volunteers.

Contact us at if you would like more information on our speakers program.


Help Us Find Homes for 10,000 More!

10K the Pup!

Our little 10K has moved into his new home and we're focusing now on finding homes for the rest of our deserving pets.

We will be moving into our new pet adoption center at LaFortune Park (5201 S. Yale Ave.) in June. The former Par 3 Club House building needs repairs to make it safe and sound, so we're launching a campaign to raise money for all the materials and labor. We need more than $35,000, so please consider making a donation. Once the center is open, we will be able to do more adoptions because we will have dogs and cats there every day for people to see, walk, and love.

Just click here to make your tax deductible donation today.
