City Police Horses Find Home

A donation by the Hillcrest Medical Center to the Tulsa Community Foundation, will allow the sale of eight City of Tulsa Police horses to use in non-profit programs such as the Tulsa Boys home and other equestrian programs in the city.
“The City of Tulsa’s eight horse unit will be a smooth transition for non-profits to use, as each horse had acquired training to be around large crowds, young children and other animals,” Mayor Taylor said.” I would like to thank the Tulsa Community Foundation and CEO of Hillcrest, Steve Dobbs for finding such a positive solution for these eight horses to continue to serve Tulsa.”
Each horse is being appraised and will be sold at fair-market value to the Tulsa Community Foundation. Appraisals will be done as early as next week and money received from the sale of the eight horses will go into the City of Tulsa’s general fund.
“Hillcrest Medical Center is pleased to purchase from the city, and in turn, donate these incredibly well-trained, respected and hard working horses that have provided a great service to our community. The ability to donate them to area non-profit organizations allows them to stay and continue serving in the local area.” Steve Dobbs, Chief Executive Officer, Hillcrest Medical Center said.
