OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma City's Animal Welfare Division is looking for volunteers for the newly created Animal Disaster Brigade to strengthen its efforts to protect pets and people during a disaster.

“Oklahoma City's pets are just as at risk as our most vulnerable residents when disaster strikes,” said Animal Welfare Superintendent Julie Bank. “In order to serve our pets well during the time of a disaster, we are looking to link up with animal lovers across the metro, who can help us and our animals when it is needed most.”

The Animal Welfare Division is looking for dependable animal lovers from the Oklahoma City area who will volunteer to be part of the brigade to help Oklahoma City pets in the event of a disaster. 

The City will use the contact information to mobilize a group of volunteers to help at temporary shelters, communications, and with animal rescue if a disaster strikes.
