Rescued 'n Ready Animal Foundation (RnRAF) is a nonprofit organization formed by experienced rescue volunteers to help address the pet overpopulation problem in Oklahoma.
Based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, RnRAF rescues pets from Tulsa-area kill shelters and will sometimes take in a pet needing to be rehomed by owners. Potential rescues are considered for general health and for rehabilitative or manageable behavior issues, such as timidity.
On acceptance into RnRAF, each pet is examined by a veterinarian, vaccinated, checked for heartworms (dogs) or feline disease (cats) and parasites, treated as needed, then placed in foster care until the right home is found for them. Dogs receive heartworm and flea/tick preventatives. Unaltered cats and dogs over the age of 4 months who are not altered when taken in are spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Puppies and kittens are required to be spayed/neutered at our contracted facility when age appropriate. The adoption fee includes medical care as described above while in the care of RnRAF, including the spay/neuter surgery.
Our foster families are the heart of RnRAF, providing a safe, nurturing environment for a rescued pet until adoption occurs. Our volunteers are the hands and feet of RnRAF, sharing their gift of time at RnRAF events, especially caring for the animals at weekly adoption events.
RnRAF networks with other rescue groups to refer appropriate animals (such as a pure breed to a pure breed rescue) as well as to educate the public on the importance of altering pets and to direct them to low-cost spay/neuter options.
