Oklahoma City Animal Shelter Rescue
Approximately 10 years ago Oklahoma City faced a major budget crisis. After the animal shelter's budget was cut along with that of other city departments, city officials were determined not to let it happen again.

It includes animals that were lost but returned to their original owners and those adopted into new homes or transferred to rescue groups. Ten years ago, only about one in four animals to enter the shelter left alive.

Knepp asked the City of Sacramento to postpone the outsourcing and give her time to turn things around.
