We just got this press release from the Norman Police Department. Long story short: if you see someone being a horrific jerk, call the police! I mean seriously. Look at these puppies! Good gravy!
Norman Animal Welfare is asking for your help.
Every spring the number of unwanted dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens increases in Norman. On Monday an abandoned puppy was turned into the shelter. The puppy was found at a convenience store located at 36th NW and Robinson. Just two to three weeks old the puppy will need to be bottle feed to survive. On Tuesday another abandoned puppy was turned into the Animal shelter. This one was found next to a dumpster at Classen and Constitution. Appearing to be a litter mate of the first puppy, this second one is two to three weeks old and needs to be bottle feed.
These two are lucky, and that is why we need your help. They were found and turned into the shelter and a foster home was immediately available. They could have just as easily been run over, starved to death, killed by another animal, poisoned, or abused by others in the area. Animal Cruelty is the charge that Animal Welfare Officers will file if the person responsible for abandoning these puppies is found.
How can you help? Call the Norman Police department immediately if you see someone dumping unwanted pets. A description of the vehicle, including the tag, make and model, and individuals involved would be very helpful. If you have a reason to suspect that someone is abandoning their pets call the Norman Animal Welfare at 292-9736
Another way to help is to have your pet spayed or neutered. This will help ensure that your pet does not have an unwanted litter of puppies or kittens.
