Some Dogs Displaced in Creek County Fires Still Need Homes

Posted: Updated:

Of the roughly two dozen dogs displaced in this summer's Creek County fires, there are still about five that need homes this holiday season.

The Oklahoma Alliance for Animals held an open house at its new location on 15th Street Sunday afternoon. It had two of these dogs on display for adoption.

"Most of them were reunited with their owners through the Facebook page, and so that was really good," said Elaine Meek with OAA. "There were a few like these that either we couldn't find their owners or their owners just weren't able to take care of them."

Meek said the Creek County fires hit quickly, and Tulsa was unprepared to handle the number of dogs being displaced. Since then, OAA has worked with shelters to help unite the dogs with families.

Rosebud is an 18-month-old Shar Pei. Ringo is about a two-year-old Red Heeler mix. They both had heartworm conditions that OAA treated.

OAA is asking for more supplies and donations this holiday season to continue its non-profit work with animals and rescue organizations. It is displaying a Christmas tree in its new office with ornaments donors can buy to sponsor a spay/neuter procedure.

Meek said adopting a pet during the holidays can be stressful, but she encourages families interested in the Creek County dogs to call 918-742-3700 for more information.
