Listed below are a few of Madeline’s area of interest and the different ways you can get involved and serve the community.
Moore Animal Shelter and Adoption Center
Interested in volunteering with the City of Moore Animal Shelter? Volunteers play a vital role within our organization. Without your support, the shelter would not be able to assist nearly the number of animals who need help in the community.
Volunteer opportunities include the following tasks: bathing and walking dogs, grooming animals, adoption and community events, socializing pets, training dogs.
Individuals can register to be notified about special volunteer opportunities by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Madeline had a heart for animals especially those that needed a forever home. For more information Click Here
Ferel Cat Project
The City of Oklahoma City offers a Trap Neuter Release (TNR) program for feral cats, known to some as the Community Cat Program. If you live inside of Oklahoma City limits you are eligible to bring your community cat to Oklahoma City Animal Welfare any day of the week between 9 – 5:30. The cat will be spayed/neutered, receive a rabies vaccination and an ear tip, and be returned to the address you provide them at no charge to you.
The TNR program helps manage free-roaming cat populations without harming them and can eventually lead to a humane end to a cat overpopulation situation in local neighborhoods. Oklahoma City Animal Welfare encourages the public to take part in this program.
OK Humane & TNR
They are currently accepting a total of 15 walk-in appointments per day Monday – Friday for feral or community cats. Pricing for these cats is $30 which covers the cost of surgery, a rabies vaccination, and an ear tip. Drop off is between 7:30 – 8:30 am and pick up is the same day between 4:00 – 5:00 pm. This pricing is available to any person trapping feral and free-roaming cats for “TNR”, regardless of home address or income. An ear tip is mandatory to receive this pricing and to be eligible for a walk-in appointment, with no exceptions. These spots are on a first come first serve basis and each cat must arrive in their own cat trap or secure hard-sided carrier. If a cat arrives in a cardboard box, plastic bin, or wire dog crate, or if there are multiple cats in one trap/carrier they will be turned away.
Regional Food Bank
Founded in 1980, the Regional Food Bank distributes food through a network of more than 1,300 community-based partner agencies and schools in 53 counties in central and western Oklahoma. The Regional Food Bank not only distributes food, but they are a leader in educating the public on hunger, advocating for those living with hunger and providing access to additional resources. Their Mission is to lead a network that provides nutritious food and pathways to self-sufficiency for people facing hunger.
Sadly, Oklahoma is the fifth hungriest state in the nation. The majority of people served by the Regional Food Bank are chronically hungry children, seniors living on limited incomes and hardworking families struggling to make ends meet. The Regional Food Bank distributes on average 50 million pounds of food each year through its network of more than 1,300 community-based partners in 53 counties in central and western Oklahoma.
Madeline felt strongly about ensuring no child went to bed hungry and would donate her time serving at the Regional Food Bank. There are multiple ways to get involved. Click here for more information.
