Our Board read with interest Wendy’s article on the “no Kill” movement’s overemphasis on euthanasia and agree! We have operated two spay neuter clinics in Tulsa, OK for 15 years and performed over 140,000 surgeries for low income families and rescue groups. Still, we are overrun with dogs and cats and are scheduled out for 4 weeks. We have an increasingly difficult time finding high volume/high quality vets who can comfortably do 40 surgeries/day. Our Tulsa Animal Welfare is releasing intact pets to anybody that says they will foster and is not enforcing our spay/neuter ordinance. We have asked the mayor to privatize TAW and are looking to merge with the local Tulsa SPCA. The city wants to appoint a steering committee to hire a consultant to assess our situation and make recommendations. There have been two previous studies by HSUS and KPMG both recommending privatization but it went nowhere. Would you consider doing an assessment or know an organization that would?
Wow, great work providing spay and neuter services! Your challenges- finding vets, getting s/n ordinances enforced- sound familiar. Just this year, the City of San Diego and several other cities in San Diego County contracted with San Diego Humane Society for animal care and control services. Someone from San Diego Humane Society might know who would do an assessment for you. Their number is 619-299-7012.
