We have much to be thankful for this past year. We celebrated our 8 th anniversary in May of 2015 . During the 2014 year with the wonderful volunteers and community support we had
243 - Adoptions
448 - Spay & Neuters
70 - Trap Neuter & Releases
34 - Transports all in 2014
Thanks to a HUGE grant from the City of Muskogee Foundation. The grant is for a 25.00 spay / neuter clinic for low income families or individuals with income low enough to receive some type of public assistance and live in the city limits of Muskogee. We'll be signing up about 40 pets per month for the next year. A big round of applause for Dr. Tim Synar DVM for working with us on this clinic and making it possible to put in the extra hours needed to add 40 more surgieries to his schedule. The clinic will continue for the remainder of 2015 and into 2016. We are looking forward to sharing our final stat numbers for 2015 and will share them with everyone soon.
What isn't news is..... We know there are a lot of animal lovers out there and the homeless dogs and cats sure could use your help. We meet the 2 nd Tuesday of each month, 6:30pm, usualy at 119 Spaulding. Check our facebook or website for updates on time and location. Come join us, together we can do so much more for the homeless pets in our city and we'd be very happy to have you join us doing as much or as little as you'd like. There are so many areas we need volunteers in, fosters, help to show pets, book keeping skills,grant writting skills, picking up donations, help with fund raisers or clinic sign ups, posting flyers,pet pictures. If you'd like to help, there is something that needs doing for anyone !
We do not have an actual facility/building. All of our pets are in volunteer foster homes. If you would like to meet one of our pets or want additional information, email us or call (if a phone listing is provided). Arrangements can be made for you to meet them. We do have cats/kittens showing at the Muskogee PETCO seven days a week during their normal business hours. Although Coins volunteers are not on site, Petco staff are available to assist you with adopting a new family member. Often, we have other pets posted on facebook. We also have dog/puppy adoption events and they will posted on our calendar, Facebook and the local news paper.
Our fees vary from $35--$150 depending on age, breed, vaccinations,spayed/neutered etc. To adopt a dog, you must have a secure fenced yard. We have an adoption contract. The contract states you agree to provide proper food,shelter and care for your new pet. We are utilizing an early age spay/neuter clinic and our pets can be spayed/neutered as early as 8 weeks of age.
Most of our volunteers/foster homes have paying jobs outside the home so please be patient when waiting for a response. If you were not to receive a response within 24 hours. please let us know.
