Spaying and Neutering is the Law in Tulsa

Healthy animals face early death as a form of animal control. Others are left to face starvation, automobiles, the elements, and cruelty. Spaying or neutering pets to prevent unwanted offscpring can help save millions of animals from dismal fates.

Tulsa animal ordinances require all dogs and cats be spayed or neutered by the age of six months unless the owner secures an exemption. The ordinance states:

"Section 101.OFFENSES

It shall be an offense under the terms of this chapter for any owner within the Corporate limits of the City of Tulsa to harbor, keep or possess a dog or cat over the age of six months, other than a dog owned and used by the Police Department of the City as a police dog, which has not been spayed or neutered, unless the owner has secured a hobbyist exemption permit."

Pet Adoption Links

Here are some hyperlinks to agencies and organizations dedicated to finding homes for our less fortunate neighbors.


Thanks to the kindness of volunteers with ARF and other organizations who help place pets in homes, I have been able over the years to place many abandoned pets who found there way to our farm in Claremore.

This web page is dedicated to those agencies and volunteers. Please help them with your time and money whenever possible.

If you know of other agencies that are not listed here, please let me know by sending an email to me at:
