Request an Animal Trap
You can rent a small or large trap at the Shelter for use in
trapping nuisance animals including racoons, opossums, and skunks.
They may also be used to trap stray dogs and cats. You can bring
the trap with the animal back to the Shelter.
You will be required to post a deposit and have a valid Drivers
License listing a City of Tulsa address. The rental period is one
week. The deposit will be returned upon return of the trap.
Report a Barking Dog
To report a Barking Dog
If you are being disturbed by a dog that is barking repetitively
for over ten minutes, this may constitute a nuisance under City of
Tulsa Municipal Code.
We first recommend that you speak to your neighbor about this
problem before reporting it. Many dog owners are not aware that
their dog is barking and are thankful to be informed.
If this is not effective, you can call our investigator, (918)
596-8005, the Customer Care Center at 311 or use the online form to report this
We will send the owner of the dog a warning letter to describe
the City of Tulsa's Nuisance Law. We will also send the dog owner
recommendations for how to stop their dog from incessantly
We will send you a copy of this letter and directions for next
steps if the barking continues after the owners have received the
warning letter. You may leave an anonymous complaint - however this
will mean you will not receive follow up information for handling
the problem if it continues.
Remember, you must leave the exact mailing address of the dog
owner or we will not be able to address the complaint.
Report a Dead Animal
Tulsa Animal Welfare Shelter does NOT pick up dead animals.
Tulsa residents can contact the City's Streets and Stormwater
Department to schedule dead animal pick-up. That number is (918)
596-9777 or report online.
If you wish to report a dead or stray animal on or along any
state maintained roadway, you should call the Oklahoma Highway
Patrol. The phone number for the Oklahoma Highway Patrol is (405)
