Will you help our Special Angels?

November 4th, 2013

At the beginning of August, OK Humane responded to a hoarding case in our area.  The team of employees found over 40 dogs living in a flea and roach infested, feces filled home.


OK Humane saves over 40 dogs from hoarding situation

We took these dogs in to help rehabilitate them and find them loving homes. Some were relocated to partner agencies, while others were adopted out through our Adoption Program.

It is now almost three months later and we have 5 hoarding dogs remaining in our program.  These ‘Special Angels’ are in need of extra special homes that are filled with patience, time and love. We want to make sure that these shy pups find the right home so that they can blossom from shy and nervous dogs into the great companions they can be.

    This story brings tears to my eyes! How can people hurt & neglect animals? Thank God for those who rescued these adorable & sweet dogs! I wish I could adopt them all!

    I would be interested in one or both of the Chihuahuas. I used to show chis and have rescued 2 before. One was a pup from a breeder and she had some brain damage from being dropped too many times. She is healthy now at 8 years old. I also rescued another pup from a person selling them at WalMart. It was too young and didn’t know how to eat and drink. It took two weeks to keep her from dying. She is healthy and adopted my husband and watches tv on his shoulder.

    That brought tears to my eyes. I don’t know how humans or animals could live in that kind of filth. Just seeing that made me physically ill.

    I have a daughter who has cerebral palsy and I would love to get her a puppy or dog that is a rescue animal. We have taken in animals that people couldn’t take care of in the past and they are always so loving. One was a kitten taken away from the Mother too soon and we took her immediately to the veterinarian and we both tried but he said she just didn’t get a good enough start. We were so attached to her and only had her two days. We have a memorial cross in our front yard for her. It’s a solar cross and my daughter loves seeing it. Well anyway we have soft spots for rescue animals.
