Highlights from this week's City Council meeting - July 10
The City Council features adoptable pets at the first regular
Council meeting of each month to raise awareness about animals
available for adoption at the city's animal shelter.
The featured adoptable pet this month is Cooper. Cooper has
heartworms, so he is looking for an adopter who will work with City
of Tulsa Animal Welfare to help him get better. He is a
2-year-old Chihuahua mix.
If you are interested in adopting Cooper, or any of the wonderful
City of Tulsa Animal Welfare, call 918-596-8000.
You can also stop by the shelter at 3031 N. Erie Ave. to view all
the animals still available for adoption or visit PetHarbor.com.
PetHarbor.com is a real time
listing of animals in the shelter and is updated hourly. Just type
in "Tulsa" or your zip code and click "Adopt a Pet" to search. Then
check the City of Tulsa Animal Welfare shleter list box and select
"Use this shelter list."
You can then search for all dogs, cats and others, or search by
breed, gender, age, size, and color. You can also select "Register
your Breed Interest" and receive an email when matching animals
arrive at the shelter.
