Student Association will be helping as Bell Ringers for The University of Tulsa at the Student Union during the week of December 1st during lunch hours. We're trying to ring in the season and raise money for the Salvation Army. Stop by with your loose change or bills.
The University of Tulsa’s Student Animal Legal Defense Fund will be hosting two events from Dec. 1 – Dec. 5 to help Oklahoma animals. The Santa Paws Lane: Towel, Blanket, and Toy Drive will be held to raise donations for the MuttNation Foundation’s Redemption Ranch in Tishimingo, OK. The MuttNation Foundation was formed by Bev and Miranda Lambert. The ranch is celebrating its grand opening in November, and will need items to help care for the incoming pets. Thanksgiving break is the perfect opportunity for students to bring extra towels and blankets back to donate. A Box will be set up inside the Allen Chapman Student Union and will be emptied daily. The items will be delivered to the ranch over Christmas Break. For more information on the ranch, please visit: www.muttnationfoundation.com andwww.facebook.com/MuttNation. The Santa Paws Lane Silent Auction will be held to benefit the Unchain Oklahoma project by the Oklahoma Alliance for Animals. Unchain Oklahoma provides dog houses and fences to keep dogs from being chained/tethered outdoors with no shelter. Chaining/Tethering pets can lead to starvation, dehydration, aggressiveness, injuries, and death. Donations will be accepted through Thanksgiving week, and letters will be provided for all donors. The items will be posted online at 11 a.m on Dec. 1 and the auction will end on Dec. 5 at 5 p.m. The auction will be held on Paw Law’s Facebook page,www.facebook.com/PawLawTULaw.
