Where do our animals come from?

All the animals available for adoption through OK Humane are transferred from the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter. Our goal is to eliminate the needless euthanasia of adoptable animals at the OKC Animal shelter, so all our adoptions animals come directly from there. We do not accept animals from the public.


What’s the adoption process?

Our goal is to help you provide a great home for any of our available animals. If you are interested in adopting a dog or a cat, you can speak with one of our Adoption Specialists who will help you find an animal that fits you or your family. Once you select the pet you’d like to adopt, we will have you fill out a short questionnaire. After going over the adoption paperwork, you pay the adoption fee and take the animal home with you that same day.


Where can you go to adopt?

OK Humane Adoption Center

You can visit adoptable pets at our Adoption Center, located at 7500 N. Western Ave, Oklahoma City, OK 73116. Our Adoption Center is a totally new concept in Oklahoma City. Cats and dogs stay in “living rooms” with furniture and toys where they can interact easily with potential adopters in a comfortable, welcoming environment. The Adoption Center features a Humane Education wing and a large retail area with toys, food and other accessories, the sale of which benefits the animals in our program. Call (405) 286-1229 ext. 4 for more information.
