Oklahoma City Animal Welfare Division - Petfinder

The Central Oklahoma Humane Society relies on foster homes to house and provide temporary care for the dogs and cats in our adoption program. A foster home/foster parent is an individual, couple or family who provides temporary care, shelter and love for an OK Humane animal(s) while it is waiting to be adopted. Foster homes are an absolutely vital part of saving the lives of animals in Oklahoma City; the more foster homes we have, the more animals we can save: it’s as simple as that! Learn more about becoming a foster parent.

Instead, she was in the city to adopt a dog from Oklahoma City Animal Welfare.

More of Oklahoma City's homeless animals are finding families than ever before, but there remains a surplus of healthy and adoptable dogs and cats. But officials hope that one day, every spare animal in the city can find a local home.

Oklahoma City Animal Welfare Division

The Oklahoma City Animal Shelter is offering special holiday adoption specials on dogs and cats that are in the shelter. All of our adoptable dogs are in foster homes, located throughout the Oklahoma City area. They are not kept in kennels or boarding while they wait for their forever homes. They are living as a part of a family, where they are as socialized as possible. While in their foster homes, the process of house and leash training is started. They are taught doggy house manners and how to interact with other dogs and sometimes other animals as well!

Hounds of the Heartland of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, is a non-profit humane greyhound
adoption organization dedicated to finding loving, responsible homes for both retired racing greyhounds and for young greyhounds not placed on the race track. Our aim is to let the public know what excellent, loving pets these noble dogs make.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.
