Tulsa, Oklahoma (Saturday, Nov. 2) – The second annual PAWsh Palaces fundraising event starts today. Six palaces are on display at Southern Agriculture locations in Tulsa and surrounding communities. The public is invited to vote for their favorite dog house or pet furniture. Each $5 vote enters the donor to win the house they voted on. Voting takes place online at tulsaspca.org/pawshvoting Saturday, Nov. 2 through Saturday, Dec. 7. This event helps us improve the lives of dogs and cats, and their human companions. Dogs like Sheldon (above).

Sheldon lived his life on a chain without proper shelter or protection until our cruelty investigator rescued him in June. Despite the Tulsa SPCA’s efforts to promote awareness, dogs like Sheldon are forced to suffer outside in the sweltering heat of summer or the deep freeze of winter.

One way we promote awareness of the life-saving importance of pet shelter is our annual PAWsh Palaces event – a collaborative effort between our agency, Tulsa architecture firms, builders and two student groups. This competition celebrates innovative design and our family pets. These teams come together and design one-of-a-kind doghouses, cat patios and indoor pet furniture.
