Some good news this day for Oklahoma City's Animal Shelter. The ASPCA has awarded the shelter a $74,000 grant to strengthen and promote the shelter's foster and adoption programs.
The money will help pay for part-time vets and their assistants to treat and sterilize up to a thousand shelter pets.
OKC shelter officials say this will help as they try to reach their goal of a 75 percent live release rate of animals housed there.
The Oklahoma City Animal Shelter is open for adoptions daily, except holidays, from noon until 5:45 p.m. The shelter's located at SE 29th and Bryant, just about a mile-and-a-half east of I-35.
