HELP JACK SUPPORT THE DVIS KENNEL
Mascot Jack urges everyone to support DVIS kennels this holiday season. Tulsa Stained Glass Company is now accepting donations of pet food and supplies to support the @DVIStulsa Kennels. Take your donations to the new TSG location at 4131 South Sheridan before December 22nd.
Domestic Violence Intervention Services (DVIS) built a new emergency shelter which houses the first pet kennels in an Oklahoma Domestic Violence shelter. Often an abusive partner will kill or injure a pet left behind to get back at the victim for leaving. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 71 percent of pet-owning victims entering domestic violence shelters report that their batterer had injured, maimed, killed, or threatened family pets. Your support will help bring comfort to families affected by domestic and sexual violence by helping DVIS care for their pets.

TULSA BUSINESS OWNER SET TO” BITE BACK” AT BAD DOG OWNERS
Longtime Tulsa resident and business owner Richard Bohm has had enough…..of the actions of irresponsible pet owners. Following months of unprovoked vicious attacks by a single dog on both his own dog and those of his neighbors, further worsened by the flat refusal of the animal’s owner to take any responsibility for the thousands of dollars in veterinary bills and emotional trauma his pet caused the residents of this quiet mid-town Tulsa community, these Tulsans are fighting back.
According to Bohm, “after reviewing current laws and visiting with authorities, we found that there is very little either the Tulsa Police Department or Animal Control can do to penalize these owners unless they actually see the attack happen. It becomes your word against the word of the owner. They want to help, but their hands are tied. ” He went on to say that one elderly widow had to spend over $2,500 to save her dog’s life after the animal’s attack on her pet.
Richard views what happened in his neighborhood as only the “tip of the iceberg” of what is happening all over Tulsa. He is hosting a public meeting on November 14th at 6:00 p.m. to educate the public on animal control issues and solicit signatures for a petition they plan to submit to the City of Tulsa to enforce stronger punishment for negligent pet owners. “We want to do what it takes to force these people to control their animals so that others won’t have to experience the horrors that we have.” National statistics reveal that over 4.7 million dogs bite both people and pets annually , at least 20% of which require immediate medical attention.
