Animal rescues to the rescue

There are numerous animal rescue organizations in the Tulsa area that are mostly volunteer run, non-profit based, and depend on help from the community for fosters and monies to help care for the animals. We’ve highlighted some of the rescues and asked for information on a special pup in their rescue that is looking for a loving forever home. You can also view additional pets on their websites.

MEADOW

Meadow is a precious, 11.2 lb., chocolate tricolor girl. Her estimated date of birth is January, 2013. This poor little girl was discarded after being a breeder dog. They had pulled all her canines and she has scarring on one eye. She's a little shy but very sweet and so deserving of a forever, calm and loving home to spoil her rotten.
