For the past 100 years the Tulsa SPCA has been giving back to the community and its animals. In celebration of its centennial year, the organization will be celebrating with a variety of amazing events for the community.

So let’s show them some love and support by attending one (or all!) of the following events this summer.

Kicking things off is the Paws & Pictures event. Bring your family, furry members included, to the Admiral Twin Drive-In on June 20 for games and live music followed by two feature films when the sun goes down.

Doors will open at 7 p.m., movies will begin at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for kids 12 and under. Pets must be leashed.

Proceeds from the ticket and concession sales will benefit the operations at TSPCA.

On June 21, head on over to KingsPointe Village for a benefit concert featuring the Easy Street Band starting at 7:30 p.m.

TSPCA volunteers will be collecting dog and cat food, blankets, treats, toys, bowls, leashes, collars and distilled water. They will also be selling their anniversary T-shirts and cookbooks.

KingsPointe Village is located at the corner of 61st Street and Yale Avenue.

Wrapping up the celebration is a Bingo Bash on July 20.

In addition to bingo, there will be a silent auction, door prizes, wine grab bag, restaurant pull and cash bar.

The event will be from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at The Campbell Hotel, 2636 E. 11th St. Tickets are $30 each or $25 for four or more.

And of course, if you are not able to attend any of the events, donations are always welcomed.

For more information on any of the events or to donate, visit or like Tulsa SPCA on Facebook.

Have a happy (and safe) Fourth!

The Fourth of July is right around the corner and any celebration at my house includes every member of the family, even the furry kind.

I know we have all seen the warnings on social networks and in our email about pets and the Fourth of July. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, be sure to check out these safety tips from PetMD.)

Even so, it is still possible to include your pets in some of the holiday’s festivities while being safe.

Most of us will probably be enjoying some nice, juicy hamburgers and hotdogs this Wednesday, usually fare that is reserved for people only.

If you want to serve up a pet-friendly version, check out Rachael Ray’s recipe for dog sliders. I’m pretty sure your dog will thank you.

Although, just having some favorite store-bought treats on hand will be sure to please any pet.

The Fourth of July is also a great day to break out the frisbee or a good ol’ rope toy and, if your dog enjoys it, the baby pool!

Between all of the eating, playing and running around outside, your furry friend won’t have his feelings hurt when you leave him in your nicely air conditioned home to snooze on the couch while you take in the fireworks display.
