Central Oklahoma Humane Society, Innova Pet Food launch ‘Take Love Home’


Special to The Sun

OKLA. CITY — Today, the Central Oklahoma Humane Society (OK Humane) and Procter & Gamble (P&G), maker of Innova Pet Food, announced the launch of a new pet adoption campaign called “Take Love Home.” P&G has donated more than 35 tons of Innova Pet Food for the “Take Love Home” campaign. During the next six months, beginning Valentine’s Day, every pet adopted through OK Humane will take home a free bag of Innova Pet Food while supplies last.

“OK Humane is incredibly grateful to P&G for generously donating such a high quality food to the deserving animals in our care” said OK Humane President Christy Counts. “‘Take Love Home’ will help further our mission in enhancing the lives of countless adoptable animals.”

OK Humane partners with the Oklahoma City Animal Welfare Division (Oklahoma City Animal Shelter) to eliminate the needless euthanasia of healthy, adoptable animals in Oklahoma City. OK Humane will be sharing this generous donation with the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter.

OK Humane has a robust adoption program made up of more than 360 foster families. In fact, OK Humane provided more than 2,800 dogs and cats with homes in 2012.

“In addition to sharing this donation with the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter, we will be distributing the pet food to our foster families who are critical to maintaining the success of our adoption program,” said Amy Shrodes, manager of development for OK Humane. “Feeding adoptable animals a high quality pet food, like Innova, will further good health and increase the likelihood of adoption.”

The OK Humane Adoption Center is at 7500 N. Western Ave.. The Adoption Center will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

The Central Oklahoma Humane Society is a nonprofit animal welfare organization that exists to enrich the communities it serves by promoting the well-being of animals. OK Humane is funded solely by donations, grants and bequests. For more information, visit www.okhumane.org.
