TULSA - An adoption event is scheduled for Saturday for dogs rescued during the Creek County wildfires last month.
Jamee Suarez-Howard, president of the Oklahoma Alliance for Animals (OAA) , says six dogs were rescued during the August fires and have been fostered by volunteers and veterinarians working the OAA, a Tulsa-based non-profit collaborative organizations working to overcome pet homelessness, abuse and neglect.
"These dogs have not been claimed by owners and they need loving, forever homes," said Suarez-Howard.
The dogs up for adoption include Lollie, a Basset House, Rosie, a Shar Pei, and Scrimble, a Labrador Retriever mix.
Also up for adoption are a little white shepherd mix, a brown and white mix and a white pit mix that looks more like a lab.
Suarez-Howard says three dachshunds may also be available for adoption Saturday.
All of the dogs will be spayed or neutered and will receive a microchip.
The cost for adoption is $50.
The German Shepherd Rescue will also have some dogs available for adoption Saturday.
The adoption event is from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the 34th annual Brush Creek Bazaar, located at 109th and Louisville in Tulsa.
