Best Friends of Pets are looking to raise money to help animals in the metro area. Check out this info they sent us:
Proceeds from a special raffle to be held July 28 will go a long way towards helping an Oklahoma City animal welfare organization end pet overpopulation in the metro area.
The raffle winner will receive a $500 Wal-Mart gift card.
All proceeds will benefit Best Friends of Pets’ Spay/Neuter Assistance Program or SNAP. SNAP makes spaying and neutering affordable for low-income pet owners in the Oklahoma City metro area who receive Medicaid, OKDHS or SSI benefits. So far, SNAP has helped more than 2,800 cats and dogs. Rabies vaccinations are also available at the time of the spay or neuter surgery and are $5 for all pets. SNAP works with veterinary clinics throughout the metro area.
Other programs offered by Best Friends of Pets include,
Adoption services: Best Friends of Pets works with small rescue groups and foster caregivers to find homes for pets through adoption. Adoption fees start at $65.
ID Tags program: Best Friends of Pets provides free tags for all pets in the Oklahoma City metro area to keep pets safe and out of animal shelters. Tags for animals outside the metro area cost $2.
Tickets for the Wal-Mart gift card raffle are $1 each or 6 for $5 and can be purchased from Best Friends of Pets’ website (www.bestfriendsokc.org).
