Glenpool Animal Control is deserving of our thanks and congratulations this morning. The shelter took a strong stance with the following post on its Facebook page Monday night:

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY – All pets adopted from the Glenpool Animal Shelter will be spayed or neutered, vetted & microchipped before leaving the shelter ! We WILL be part of the solution & not part of the problem! The adoption fee will now be $75.00. Also, if your pet is impounded & is not altered it will be before coming home & you will be responsible for the cost. Again, the shelter wants to be a part of the solution ! ! Oh, and we will start doing adoption events too !

The ordinance was passed by the city council. At a time when the City of Tulsa and surrounding communities are putting down thousands of animals each year, this is a huge step in the right direction. Responsible pet ownership beginning with spaying and neutering all pets is the only way our community will be able to bring that number down.

Now, if we could just get some more area shelters to follow suit!

Make sure to show your appreciation to Glenpool Animal Control on its Facebook page.
