About Tulsa SPCA
The Tulsa Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Tulsa SPCA) was founded in 1913 by concerned citizens desiring to help homeless dogs and cats and prevent abuse of draft animals engaged in heavy work on farms and in the mines and oil fields.
Incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1949 and governed by a volunteer board of directors, the Tulsa SPCA provides temporary shelter, medical assessment and care, and adoption opportunities for thousands of animals every year.
