To permit Bixby residents an opportunity to avoid unwanted door-to-door solicitations, effective April 1, 2016, the City has established a “No Knock List”, which will be provided to door-to-door vendors, so they have notice that residents at the listed addresses are prohibited from solicitations there. To be added to the list, click on the “How do I…” tab above. Then scroll to and click on the “No Knock List” link. Then fill out the online form. It’s that easy.

On Tuesday, June 21st, Bixby police, per current city protocols in a large-scale animal rescue, requested the free help of the Tulsa Humane Society to rescue more than 60 animals. The Humane Society deployed a specially trained mobile rescue team including handlers, registration and medical assessment, and a large bus to transport all of the animals at once to an emergency shelter set up in Bixby at 133rd and Memorial, where rescued animals can be adopted.
BPD officers have trained with the Humane Society for these types of situations where the safety of officers, animals, and the evidence in the investigation of animal-related complaints are important. For those reasons, when a large-scale rescue must be done, the Humane Society is the agency partner, regardless of the day-to-day animal shelter used. One arrest on a complaint of animal cruelty has been made.
The rescued animals are in a donated building in Bixby, near 133rd & Memorial, under the care of the Humane Society. As each animal is medically and emotionally cleared to be adopted, it is made available for adoption.
For an ongoing animal shelter for day-to-day animal control within Bixby, the City is working on specifications to accept proposals for an animal shelter provider. Currently, animals picked up by animal control are taken to a no-kill shelter in Sand Springs. “If we had a shelter in Bixby, it would be easier for citizens to locate lost pets or to adopt a new pet,” Ike Shirley, Chief of Police in Bixby, said.
Since an animal shelter is a contracted service for the city, and requires the expenditure of taxpayer dollars, there is a mandated process to follow to make the change. “Because the contracted service amount for a shelter is likely to be more than $10,000 annually, the Bixby City Charter and related purchasing ordinances specify that we must utilize Open Market Procedures… meaning the City must ‘solicit at least three (3) written bids, via mail, e-mail or fax, for competitive market quotations and the purchase shall then be awarded to the lowest and best bidder.’ Bixby Code, Section 2‑4‑7(A)(3),” Jared Cottle, City Manager of Bixby, said.
“We encourage all citizens to ensure their pets are tagged, so that lost pets can be reunited with their owners, and remind everyone to spay or neuter your pets,” he said.
