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.

    Available Volunteer Positions

    PetSmart Helpers

    Each Friday and Saturday, ARF brings a few of our animals to PetSmart. Our volunteers work the booth, which consists of showing the animals to people who are interested, and walking the animals every so often outside of the store.

    We are always in need of more volunteers! It's a great way to get more involved in ARF, the community, and get furry loving from our adoptable animals.

    For more information, please fill out the volunteer form and fax it or mail it to us. You can also fill out the .doc in a program like Microsoft Word and email it in to us at Or call the ARF line at 622-5962 and leave your name and telephone number so that we can contact you.
