TULSA — Major steps are being made towards the city's goal to improve the lives of animals and the care they receive.
The city recently accepted a $715,000 grant from the Watershed Animal Fund.
Last year, the city created the Coalition for Tulsa Pets, which is made up of Animal Welfare, the SPCA and the Humane Society.
The goal was to increase funding and staffing at Tulsa animal shelters to reduce the number of cats and dogs that were being euthanize.
Mayor G.T. Bynum says the grant will move them closer to that goal.
"This is reflective of our overall focus on improving the lives of not just animals in Tulsa but all of us who love them," said Bynum.
Mayor Bynum also says the grant will be distributed among the three coalition partners.
