Dogs Displaced in Creek County Fires Need Homes

Posted: Updated:

The Oklahoma Alliance for Animals is searching for families to adopt dogs displaced in last month's devastating Creek County fires. It brought about eight of the dogs to the Brush Creek Bazaar Saturday.

The OAA said about 50 dogs were reported missing in the Creek County fires. The OAA has tried to reconnect dogs with their families since the fires, but many have been left unclaimed. So far, the OAA has been able to reunite between 15-20 dogs with their families. Between the Tulsa SPCA and OAA, there are about 15 dogs that do not yet have permanent homes.

The OAA brought about eight dogs to the Brush Creek Bazaar and about three of them were applied for at least once. There was a $50 adoption fee. The dogs come vaccinated, sterilized, and microchipped. Many of them have stayed with foster families and are fully socialized.

Channel 8 caught up with a couple that came to adopt to a dachshund named Rex.

"My heart breaks, because they're just you know they don't understand and they're just lost without their surroundings," said Sharon Phillips. "It's just, it's really sad to me."

 If you are interested in learning more about the dogs, you can visit the Creek County Displaced Animal's Facebook page. You can also call OAA at (918) 742-3700.
