Oklahoma police officers help shelter volunteers walk 120 dogs: 'The help was very appreciated'

Police officers in Oklahoma took time to protect and serve four-legged members of their community over the weekend by helping them get some exercise.

The Tulsa Police Department helped volunteers at the nonprofit Redemption Paws walk more than 100 foster dogs on Saturday.

The volunteer-based rescue organization, which aims to help dogs impacted by climate change and natural disasters, posted video of officers helping to get their canine companions back into their crates after the walk.

According to the post, the police department assisted in walking a total of 120 dogs in need of some love and physical activity. The rescue organization said the dogs all came from Texas.

“The help was very appreciated,” the shelter wrote alongside the adorable footage.

The organization added that the show “LivePD” was also there filming, an A&E reality show that follows police officers during their patrols and broadcasts encounters in real-time.
