Gift of Life and Love Being Given to Local Dogs

American Humane and Enid SPCA Team Up to Send Lovable Pups to Forever Homes

September 30, 2020 —  


Two dozen adorable pups will be getting a second chance at life with the help of a giant friend, as American Humane loads up one of its huge 50-foot animal rescue vehicles with abandoned dogs being cared for at the Enid SPCA and transports them more than 600 miles to find forever loving homes. Four Enid SPCA volunteers will be driving separately to help care for the dogs on their 10-hour journey.

About American Humane

American Humane, the country’s first national humane organization, has a long history of work in Oklahoma. The group deployed following devastating flooding in Tulsa in 1984, a tornado outbreak in 1999, and the devastating 2013 EF-5 tornado in Moore. In 2016, American Humane, with funding from the Kirkpatrick Foundation and the Donner Foundation, placed a giant, new 50-foot animal emergency vehicle in Oklahoma City. American Humane and Chicken Soup for the Soul Pet Food delivered 13,000 pounds of free food to the Pet Food Pantry in Oklahoma City, and American Humane was involved in saving animals caught in the Oklahoma floods.
