I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR SO LONG, WHY DOESN'T ANYBODY WANT ME?
Hello, my new name is Pappy. I am a full blooded papillon of the 'Phalene' or 'drop-eared' variety. I bet a lot of you didn't know that we existed, did you? Well, here I am, living proof. And don't let my name fool you. I am only 2-4 years old.
It is most important to understand my breed before deciding to adopt me. I am a very high strung, energetic breed that does not always do well with small children, unless I am taught some very stout rules and I am held to them. You must be patient with me, and some training wouldn't hurt.
As for my history, I believe I had a family once, and when this lady found me in Kiefer, she tried everything to find my family, but to no avail. And since she was visiting family, and her child has severe allergies, she couldn't let me in the house, much less take me home! So now I am need a foster home, or even better, a forever home!
As a non-profit organization, we depend highly on the public for donations for the care of our fostered and boarded animals up for adoption. Pappy is one of them. He is being boarded at Green Country Vet Hospital, and the bill goes up every day he is there. No one has offered to even foster him. Any donations for him can be paid directly to them on his account, and will be greatly appreciated. I will also provide a tax deductible receipt. He thanks you from the bottom of his paws!
The Glenpool Shelter now has a new ACO. I will again be posting pictures of Glenpool's shelter animals under the heading " A Shelter Dog". If you are interested in saving one of these furbabies that are on borrowed time, you can contact me at 918-902-9078 to arrange for a visit, and to apply for adoption.
Despite my efforts, as well as that of the ACO,all animals at the shelter will be euthanized if homes are not found within an amount of time decided by the City of Glenpool, which has most recently been changed to 3 days. This only applies to animals in the Glenpool animal shelter, however, and not SHEBA Rescue animals. Though we assist our local shelter, the animals in our foster program are not in danger of being euthanized.
Other small towns surrounding the Tulsa area with shelters also have pets to offer, with time limitations, so if we don't have what you are looking for, please check other shelters for that special companion.
Who We Are
The S.H.E.B.A. Rescue Foundation is located in Glenpool Oklahoma. We are a non profit organization . We help the Glenpool area and some surrounding areas. S.H.E.B.A Stands for Save our Helpless and Euthanasia Bound Animals. As of now, we do not have our own shelter. All of our animals are presently in foster homes .
We are presently in need of foster homes and volunteers! If you would like to foster an animal or volunteer, please contact us for more information. I am also looking for volunteers to help at the Glenpool animal shelter. If interested in giving a few hours, or even a day, please contact by phone or email. I do work during the week, and will return your inquiry as soon as possible.
Adopting a friend
To adopt or foster one of our pets, a fenced-in yard is required. The first year of shots, spay/neuter, worming, and a heartworm test are all included in the fee. There is also an application to fill out. Upon approval of the application, the new family member will be taken for a final vet check, and delivered to your home. S.H.E.B.A. does not do onsite adoptions. Coupons, samples, and other useful information will be given to help you get started out right with your new pet.
RE: Owner and stray surrenders
If you are wanting to surrender an animal to SHEBA, if no foster home is available, the owner of the animal will need to foster the animal. An intake form will need to be filled out, and a foster agreement signed. The animal must be spayed/neutered, UTD on all vaccinations, and on heartworm prevention as well as flea/tick prevention. The owner will be responsible for bringing the animal to show, staying with the animal during the time we are there, and taking the animal home afterwards. All adoptions will go through SHEBA protocol, even if the potential adopter is a friend or relative of the owner. Donations with intakes are strictly voluntary, not required, but always appreciated. If changes in your life are forcing you to find a new home for your pet, I will do my best to make it the best home possible.
HELP US HELP THEM!
Our dogs and cats love to sleep on Kuranda beds, but we don't have enough for everyone. If you would like to donate a bed at a special wholesale price for a another dog or cat to sleep in comfort, please donate a Kuranda bed.
FYI:CATS and FIV!
I received an email with some important information. regarding FIV which many of you probably aren't aware of. Due to the fear behind FIV, many of these cats tend to be euthanized, or spend their lives in foster homes, never knowing what a real home would be like.
And I quote:
"I've noticed multiple postings recently for cats that have FIV and they state that the cats must be kept isolated from other animals, but this information is false. According to Cornell University's College of Veterinary Medicine:
How is FIV spread?
The primary mode of transmission is through bite wounds. Casual, non-aggressive contact does not appear to be an efficient route of spreading FIV; as a result, cats in households with stable social structures where housemates do not fight are at little risk for acquiring FIV infections. On rare occasions infection is transmitted from an infected mother cat to her kittens, usually during passage through the birth canal or when the newborn kittens ingest infected milk. Sexual contact is not a major means of spreading FIV." Please follow this link for more information.
We have such a cat in our rescue, and his name is CHASE. Take some time to look him up. Please don't let fear or ignorance keep Chase and other wonderful felines like him from having a good home!
