Found A Stray?

ARF does not pick up stray dogs, cats, puppies, or kittens. The City of Tulsa will pick up strays and some other rescue groups might assist you. Go to for a list of area breed and rescue groups.

Foster Home Info

Don't Litter!

It is against Tulsa pet ordinances for you to have a dog or cat older than 6 months that is not spayed or neutered.

Please help us save more dogs from being destroyed at kill shelters by spaying and neutering your pets. Unless you are a licensed breeder, you should not have an intact dog or cat. Be part of the solution instead of part of the problem!

What Parents and Children Should Know!

If you are adopting a dog or already have a pet in the house, please look at this video (Preventing Dog Bites to Kids) to prevent your child and pet from injury and heartbreak. Did you know that 77 percent of all dog bites happen with family pets or with pets belonging to friends? Watch and learn.

Disaster Preparedness
What Would You Do With Fido or Fluffy After a Disaster?

ARF is spearheading a disaster relief program for pets in this area. Being in the middle of Tornado Alley and having felt a few earthquakes and seen a few floods, we think everyone who loves their pets like family should be prepared to take care of them when disasters strike. Red Rover does a great job in teaching about disaster preparedness for pets. Check out this website for comprehensive information on how to be prepared to take care of your pets before disaster strikes.

ARF also wants to eventually be able to help nearby cities that are struck by disasters and need help boarding pets or adopting them out (Joplin, MO is one example of a city that needed this kind of assistance and ARF did help in a limited way).

ARF continues to work with other rescue groups, the city, the county, and the state on a comprehensive Disaster Preparedness Plan. If you would like to be a front-line volunteer to assist people and their pets during a disaster, go online here.

You can join as a volunteer there and take a course online to obtain your certification.

If your club or organization would like for us to talk to your group about this subject, please contact Rob Wheeler at
