TULSA, Oklahoma -

The Tulsa SPCA is collecting animal relief supplies for the animal wildfire victims of Creek County. They will be set up in the Drysdale parking lot at 3220 South Memorial Road from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, August 7.

They are asking for items like pet crates, pet food, blankets and/or towels, money donations, and food bowls.

"The fires in Creek County have been devastating for all involved," said Lori Hall of the Tulsa SPCA.

"Tulsa SPCA realizes that some families have lost their animals, but are springing into action to help assist families that need help for the animals that were saved."

They are working with the Oklahoma Alliance for Animals which finds temporary shelter and veterinary care for rescue animals.

Drop off money at Drysdales Tuesday, make an online donation at www.tulsaspca.org (be sure and memo it as "Creek County Relief"), or mail a check to Tulsa SPCA at 2910 Mohawk Blvd, Tulsa OK, 74110 and memo the check as "Creek County Relief".

"We will make sure the money goes to the animals in Creek County," Hall said.

Jamee Suarez of the Oklahoma Alliance for Animals urges people who are trying to help to use a Facebook page they have set up to connect lost animals with their owners - and temporary foster homes:

The group has already linked injured animals to veterinary care and reunited 10 pets with their owners.

"These people don't have anything," Suarez said Monday.  "Everybody's opening their homes and hearts to the victims."
