This is a great group of compassionate people who work hard to get the most for each animal that comes to the shelter. They do not have arbitrary timelines, or a maximum age for placing animals for adoption, etc. They get seniors into great homes while kittens and puppies benefit from loving foster homes. The leadership and board strive to bring more resources to the animals everyday...this means expanding transport to other places with more adoptions, breaking ground on a new building, better fund raising and sharing the things they learn with others by sponsoring educational opportunities. Just a really good group of people doing their best at a very difficult task!
WCSPCA in Bartlesville, OK is one of a very few open admission shelters in Oklahoma . They have helped me many times when I have found a stray animal and could not locate anybody who claimed it. They have all pets vaccinated and sterilized before placing them in new homes. They work to educate the public on pet overpopulation. People have a higher quality of life for themselves when they have an open admission shelter in their community!
We adopted our Lucy girl from Washington County SPCA. They are an amazing organization with a real heart for helping animals find their fur-ever home. We couldn’t be happier with our experience. Our family is better with Lucy in it and we can’t thank WCSPCA enough for taking care of her, until we could find her. ❤️❤️
I have volunteered for about three years now and the number of changes to policy, structure, employee accountability and technology which help the shelter service the community is such that the average person who has not come in to learn about the shelter really has no idea what all is now going on. Its really amazing. The number of out reach programs they are doing, reaching out to schools, to rescues, shelters and other citys to help build a network to reduce everyones overhead and ultimately place more animals in homes is just tremendous achievement. They have made incredible strides to better the shelter at all levels.
