Words on Wednesday- How to Help Oklahoma

If you want to help animals in need in Oklahoma, the Central Oklahoma Humane Society is working with local animal control to help reunite animals with their human caregivers.



They are asking for monetary donations to provide veterinary care for injured animals, feed and house lost animals, and help reunite animals with their families.

Please don’t send “stuff,” unless it’s “stuff” they’ve specifically asked for. Remember that it takes time, space, and man hours to coordinate the arrival of “stuff.” Right now, they need their people and their space used in other ways.

If you’re in OK and you’re looking for your lost pet, check out Reddit’s list of lost and found pets or the Facebook page where lost and found pets are posted.

And you can also help humans by texting REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 the the American Red Cross.


At times like these, many of us want to help. That’s what makes humans great, in spite of the rest.

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  1. Good advice on not sending “stuff”. Some people just don’t get it and feel that sending stuff is what helps but usually that is not the case.

  4. Hey Mr. Rumpy Sir. Citizens of bloggyville (headed by Susie, Sidebite and Shadow’s dad) are raising funds to help the victims of Moore. We do hope you post Susie, Sidebite and Shadow’s linky (located on our bulletin board) on your blog too.

  5. First of all, I’m very sorry for people and animals who got involved in OK. In Japan, almost everyday we see the TV news and feel very sad and sorry. We’ll spread the word and share this post!

  9. Thank you, Rumpy and Jen, for posting this important information. It’s true, everyone wants to help, but it’s so overwhelming when one sees the utter destruction. It’s great to have some tangible guidelines!

    We are purring and praying for all the folks in OK.
