The Central Oklahoma Humane Society has announced a special adoption event for homeless animals displaced by the May tornadoes that devastated areas of central Oklahoma. These are pets who are victims of the tornadoes who have not been claimed by their owners.
Hope After the Storm is a private - invitation only - adoption event to be held on Saturday, July 13. They will be selecting 100 potential dog adopters and 50 potential cat adopters at random for the event through their online forms at okhumane.org/hopeafterthestorm. Applications will be accepted until Friday, July 5 at noon.
When you follow that link (okhumane.org/hopeafterthestorm) you'll be taken to their website and two Rafflecopter forms: Dog Ticket Entry and Cat Ticket Entry. You'll need to complete the Rafflecopter if you hope to be selected as a potential adopter.
To be eligible, you must include your full name, phone number and email so they can contact you if your name is drawn, as well as give you further information about the event.
OK Humane says they have chosen this method to help keep the adoption process as smooth as possible, while putting the least amount of stress on the animals.
Step by step instruction for submitting your information:
- Check your calendars and make sure you will be available to be in the Oklahoma City area on July 13.
- Enter your information in the applicable form here - we will be pulling separate names for dogs and cats, so make sure you fill out the correct form.
- We will stop accepting entries at noon on Friday, July 5.
- Invitation recipients will be chosen at random for the adoption event. OK Humane will contact these people directly using the information provided. Invite recipients will be notified on the afternoon of Friday, July 5.
They are accepting only one entry per household. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at 405-286-1229 ext. 4 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: OK Humane Society has scheduled this event for July in order to give pet owners time to claim their family pets. In addition, this event is by invitation only and limited in numbers to avoid the thousands of folks that have shown up at other disaster adoption events around the country. Many traveled from far away only to find a congested venue and no pets left available for adoption.
