BENEFITING: Central Oklahoma Humane Society
The Central Oklahoma Humane Society was founded in 2007. We work in close partnership with the Oklahoma City Animal Welfare Division (OKC Animal Shelter) and our primary focus is to eliminate the needless euthanasia of healthy, adoptable animals in Oklahoma City.
Since our beginning in 2007, we have found homes for over 17,000 cats and dogs and spayed and neutered over 68,000 pets.
We are using this opportunity to help fund our Rita's Angel Program, which assists treatable animals needing extensive medical care. While thousands of healthy dogs and cats are fortunate enough to be pulled into adoption programs each year, many special needs cases are overlooked due to lack of time and resources to save these animals.
In 2013, 2,091 dogs and cats were treated by OK Humane through the Rita’s Angels Fund, at a cost of $65,000. One of these was Fish Stick, who as a kitten sustained severe internal injuries. Another pet who received livesaving care from this program was Horton, a beautiful Rottweiler who had been shot in the head and left on the side of the road. Both of these pets were treated for their injuries and nursed back to health before finding loving homes.
With your help, we can save many more precious lives, like Fish Stick and Horton. Our goal is to raise at least $75,000 for pets like these so that they can receive a second chance at lifelong loving family to call their own.
