Around 4,300 animals a year are euthanized at Tulsa’s animal shelter, and a new program aims to change that.
Saving the Pets of Tulsa — or SPOT — is a partnership to register more dogs and cats and to increase access to low-cost spay and neutering services. Tulsa Animal Welfare Manager Jean Letcher said they get some sick and injured animals that can’t be saved.
"What we want to stop is the euthanasia for space, for behavior modification, lack of that ability," Letcher said. "We euthanize too many healthy, adoptable animals."
