The Tulsa SPCA served as Tulsa’s only non-government animal rescue and adoption program in Tulsa until the 1950s. It was founded during a meeting in a concerned Tulsan’s home mainly to help homeless dogs and cats and to protect against abuse of draft animals used to do tilling on farms and heavy work in the mines and oil fields.
Animal cruelty laws have been in effect in Oklahoma since statehood and cruelty provisions are contained in the state Constitution. Until that time, a man’s animal was his to starve, neglect or beat as he chose.
