    A True Treasure

    They say one man's trash is another man's treasure but pets are not disposable. This is not the first animal to be tossed out like garbage and sadly she will not be the last.
    This sweetie and her sister were dumped in someone's yard. They could have starved or been hit by a car but now they stand a chance to get the love they deserve. Could you be the one to turn their luck around?
    Summer and Autumn are white and tan Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Mix puppie. Their estimated date of birth is March 2010. PUPPIES UNDER THE AGE OF 6 MONTHS CANNOT BE ADOPTED OUTSIDE OF THE IMMEDIATE TULSA AREA. NO EXCEPTIONS!

    Puppy Fever?

    Fight puppy fever by fostering a litter of puppies or kittens in need of homes. Do you need a new puppy to become part of your forever family? Please consider rescuing from your local animal shelter or rescue group. These sweet little chihuahua babies will soon be available for adoption at www.arftulsa.org.

    If you are considering breeding your dog, visit the dog pound nearest you. Ask how many dogs are put down monthly. Suitable, permanent homes are difficult to find for every breed. Even these adorable little guys would be abandoned and homeless without rescue organizations like ARF. Litter upon litter of puppies are born into a world of abandonment and starvation.

    Happy New Year Koehler!

    This dog's chance at ringing in the New Year were slim. He had been brought into the Sand Spring's shelter after being hit by a car. Koehler had a broken pelvis and required a very expensive and specialized procedure to survive. Dr. Huckaby from Bent Arrow Vet. and Tulsa Plastic Surgeon Dr. Koehler from Tulsa Surgical Arts joined forces. They donated their services and plated his hip. Darren Swiggett from Stryker-Leibinger donated the plates and screws! Amazing things happen when phenomenal people work together! Thank you all so much for saving Koehler. Sending you fuzzy lovin' and puppy kisses!

    Koehler is getting a second chance at life. He is already putting some weight on his hip. Will you help keep him off the streets and headed in a pawsitive direction?
    You can visit puppy Koehler and Dr. Huckaby at Bent Arrow Vet. Call 459-9100 for an appointment. He will be available for adoption after a few weeks of recovery time.
    You visit the Dr. Koehler at Tulsa Surgical Arts or sniff him out on Facebook!
