Oklahoma Rescue May 2019

On Friday, May 31, The Anti-Cruelty Society, in partnership with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and other Chicago-area shelters, took in 165 cats and dogs from Tulsa, Oklahoma where they had experienced severe weather and flooding. Taking in these animals who were in the shelter prior to the storms helped free up space in local shelters for animals displaced by the flooding.

77 of these animals came to The Anti-Cruelty Society and are now living with fosters or have become available for adoption. Many have already found their forever homes as well!

Thank you to all who have helped us care for these animals. So far, over $5,000 has been raised to help care for them. You can still help by donating at or adopting! View available animals at All the animals from Oklahoma have a special mark on their photos!
