With the help of almost two dozen volunteers and workers, the Tulsa SPCA loaded all of their adoptable animals into vans Friday morning.

They are sending them on a transport to Illinois, so they can free up space for any displaced animals from the flood.

The animal transport happens later Friday morning, along with the Humane Society of Tulsa, and the Tulsa Animal Welfare.

Collectively, the groups are moving nearly 200 animals that were in the shelters before the flooding.

A temporary pet shelter has been set up at the Expo Square, housing more than 100 animals during the flood event.

Also today, the Tulsa County District Attorney's Office is holding a pet supply drive for the shelter.

You can drop off supplies such as food bowls, blankets, crates and toys.

These items can all be dropped off at the courthouse in downtown Tulsa, from 11 until 1.
