Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in Oklahoma City – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year.

But your eyes are shielded from the parts of the shelter you don't want to see. Closed doors hide the deaths caused by Oklahoma City's pet overpopulation problem. You wonder which ones as you walk the hallways. Adopters can't save them all, but they save a few, and only those working behind the doors see the rest.

While our Adoption Center is open six days a week to make perfect matches with people and pets, the Central Oklahoma Humane Society loves to team up with PetSmart locations throughout Oklahoma City to complete even more families!You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a Oklahoma City pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in Oklahoma City is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a Oklahoma City animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained.Tiny Tails Small Dog Rescue is a 501c(3) located in Midwest City, Oklahoma. We are a small group of ladies who have high ambitions to help the overpopulated shelters in the Oklahoma City Metroplex reduce their kill rate. We are willing to take any smaller dog that is in need of help. As a not for profit organization we go to local businesses for adoption outreach along with local area pet adoption eventsThis will be a Multi-agency adoption event produced by Oklahoma City Animal Welfare. It will be held at the State Fair Park inside the Hobbies, Arts, and Crafts Building in Oklahoma City. Pet adoptions will be offered by OKC AWD and many of our transfer partners on Saturday, June 17th from 9am to 9pm and Sunday, June 18th from 12pm to 6pm.ZIP codes in Oklahoma City from which the largest percentage of animals at the shelter come from are being targeted for outreach programs that help low-income families sterilize their pets to reduce the number of new litters. Some of the effects from other programs already under way should have an increasing effect on the live release rate this year and next. Efforts to line up more people to foster litters of adoptable puppies and sick dogs could save lives, as will a new humane society program to ship adoptable surplus to states with pet shortages.
