Award Date: December 1, 2015 Awarded: $329,336
The Central Oklahoma Humane Society (OK Humane) was founded in 2007 to help end needless euthanasia and was one of the first in the country to formalize a relationship with its city shelter whereby both entities would work in partnership to increase the city shelter’s live release rate. An initial live release goal of 75% was established and the partnership has made great strides, increasing the live release rate from 25.3% in 2007 to 66.7% by the end of 2014.
