Local organizations are hosting a mega dog adoption event this weekend
TULSA, Okla. – Oklahoma Alliance for Animals is teaming up with Tulsa Animal Welfare and Expo Square to host a mega dog adoption event this Saturday.
While the PGA is over, the organizations are hosting the PGA(P) – also known as Please Go Adopt a Pup.
The event occurs due to overcapacity at TAW and dogs needing to be adopted in order to avoid euthanasia to create space.
Officials also say this adoption event will help TAW open its doors to the public sooner. The shelter closed again indefinitely for the second time in six months in early May due to another outbreak of distemper.
The one-day event will host over 35 adoptable dogs from TAW. All dogs are fully vaccinated, modified, microchipped and tested negative for distemper.
“OAA has always strived to help Tulsa Animal Welfare and our community in any way we can,” says Erin Shackelford, Executive Director of OAA. “We are so excited to partner up to find these healthy adoptable dogs their perfect families. Adopting a pet is a big responsibility, but rescued dogs return the favor with unconditional love and appreciation.
All adoption fees will be waived for approved adopters. Each dog adopted with go home with:
- a dog bed
- food and treats
- coupons for a free professional veterinary grooming and wellness exam
Adopters will also be entered into a raffle to win a huge prize pool from Woodland West Pet Resort and Woodland West Animal Hospital.
PGA(P) takes place this Saturday, May 28, from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Expo’s SageNet Center, located at 4145 East 21st Street, Tulsa.
