Tulsa Sunrise Rotary Club is hosting its Fifth Annual Maine Lobster Fest & Charity Auction on August 27th to raise funds to increase awareness of Autism and provide Assistance Dogs for children and adults afflicted with this debilitating disease.  Proceeds go to Autism Center of Tulsa and Glad Wags Service Dogs. Families affected by autism need guidance to access resources and information.  ACT partners with a variety of agencies to provide that needed support. By accessing this support, a family can easily connect with a variety of local, statewide and national resources.

The need for service dogs of all levels is great right here in Tulsa. The waiting time can be up to 4 years for some high level service dogs. Glad Wags can make a difference by training and providing service dogs without the long waiting time.  These are dogs that assist folks in wheelchairs or have very limited mobility.

Their dogs to train as service dogs come from local animal shelters and rescue groups.

To date, the Tulsa Sunrise Rotary Club has raised and donated more than $250,000 to these two worthy causes. At this point, they have provided 25 assistance dogs to benefit those in need in northeast Oklahoma.
