My children and I have wanted a kitten for years, and after many hours of research, we decided to adopt! Milton (formerly Eagon) has brought a tremendous amount of happiness to our home, and we will certainly adopt again when we are ready for another pet! - Lamanda H.
Introducing Biscuit Marie! (aka Lolly) I adopted Biscuit in December 2012 as a surprise Christmas gift for my three children. Biscuit has been such a blessing to our family! She has adjusted beautifully and all three of my children just love her! She is so sweet, fun, playful and very well behaved! She loves to play with her toys and loves to chase her little red laser dot all over the house. Sitting in the window with the sun in her face is her favorite place to be in the early morning, but she always makes her way to Mommy's bed at night. Adopting Biscuit Marie completed our family and we couldn't be happier! - Jennifer R.
Hello everyone. My family adopted Marabelle, Now Ellie! I was just doing an update on her and how she is doing. After we brought her home she instantly fit right in. She truly has been a blessing to our family. She hangs out with me all day and when she is feeling up to it she runs around with the kids in our yard. She can get pretty spunky when she is in the mood to play. She literally goes everywhere she can with us. She hates to be alone but thats ok because she rarely ever is. We couldn’t thank God enough that we have her in our life. She is our big teddy bear! :) -Sarah E.
Norma Jean Hi! I wanted to let you all know how Zoey (aka Norman Jean) is doing. She is such a wonderful dog!! She has settled in very nicely in my home. She and Bandit get along well, and he has shared many things that were formerly “his” – “his” bed, couch, and even toys!! I am very happy it has worked out so well, since Bandit was an only dog for 6 years. I have started taking her to doggy daycare, too, and she is thriving there, too- she is coming out of her shell, and it’s just great. Thank you so much for the 48 hour adoption event. Who knew volunteering would lead to adopting another dog?! Deb M.
I adopted Andy a tuxedo cat almost a year go. He has become my little companion. I used to not be a big fan of cats but Andy definitely changed my opinion on this subject. He has a big personality in a small body. He's not afraid of anything and he loves to hang out on my lap. He turns two years old tomorrow and I am very thankful that to have him! - Tacey T.
Hello my name is Chris and I adopted Ernesto who is now Hercules he's half American bulldog half American pit Hercules is great dog very lovable and lazy lol he was very excited to meet my 2 boys and my wife he is an awesome dog and a great breed thanks OK Humane. -The Rush Family
I adopted Shane, now Sir Walter Raleigh (Walt for short) in December 2011. He is such a snuggler and loves everyone he meets (except cats, although I think it’s just a front). He has really made a difference in my life. The last picture is right after I caught him in the trash can…he almost looks like he didn’t mean to do it. :)
I fell in love with LuLu the first time I saw her at the Adoption Center. I would go visit her as much as I could until I was able to adopt her. I finally adopted her on December 10th, and she is doing so great! She loves to chase shadows on the wall and play with her feather toys. She is incredibly sweet and I'm so happy I got her. =D - Jasmine
We adopted Zoe (was named Buzz) on February 14, 2009 when she was 9 months old and she is the best Valentines present I have ever received :) Today she is celebrating her 3rd birthday. She is a sweet and lovable family member that has added nothing but smiles and love to our family. My husband is not a cat lover but Zoe has won him over. She is still shy and skittish but I hope some day she will know that she is in her forever home and will never leave. I am so blessed to have found this sweet creature and to have the privilege of being her fur mommy. Thank you COHS for finding Zoe and caring for her until I was able to adopt her. -Lisa W.
Thanks for introducing us to Sabrina (the black kitty) we had adopted from ya guys right before Christmas! She is a great companion for myself & my other kitty to stay young! Sabrina is here playing at Princess's back paws to get her attention. As you can see, she doesn't seem to care any more. Thanks again! ? - Amanda
We adopted Serena #1958 in June or July 2009. Her caretaker, my 6 yr old daughter, decided she did not look like a Serena and changed her name to Shiloh. I must say Shiloh is the goddess of our home. She is one spoiled cat. My daughter has Shiloh trained that when she taps her chest it is okay for Shiloh to come and sleep on her chest. Shiloh follows her everywhere. Shiloh is very healthy and we love having her. We do have a dog and when we are around Shiloh acts like she doesn't like our dog, although, I have caught Shiloh tease and play with our dog when she doesn't know we are in house. So, deep down inside I know she likes our dog. She reminds of Garfield and Odie. I have attached some pics of Shiloh sleeping with her girl. I'm not sure if Shiloh is hugging my daughter or tiring to tell her to stop snoring in these pictures. What do you think? Thank you so much for everything you guys do. -Liz A.
Here are Jackson and Lindsay after a morning of play. It’s only been a few days, so most of the other 5 cats are not quite won over, but the “bully” of my group is in love with them. We love them all and wish we could save more of them!! Lisa W.
Thank you for emailing me to check on Molly. She is doing very well and we don’t have any problems with her. :)
Both Hemi (orange) and Twitch (black and white) were adopted from OK Humane, though not at the same time. They are now the best of friends and are always together. Hemi is so brave and talkative. He has to follow people into the bathroom and will sit by the bathroom door if you don’t let him in. Twitch is more cautious. He’s very jumpy but he trusts Hemi. If Hemi thinks something is safe, Twitch will follow. We love these two fur balls so much and couldn’t be without them! Love, Chris & Tisha S.
Sonic (now renamed ZuZu after one of the daughters in Jimmy Stewart’s “It’s a Wonderful Life”) is doing great. She has one dog sister and three cat sisters that she is driving insane with her kitten antics! It has been many years since we adopted such a young one and it is easy to forget how unbelievably cute they can be! Thanks, Diane M.
Here’s a photo of Sally relaxing, she has settled in well with my other cat. You can just tell when a cat is right for you. You did a wonderful job organizing “Midnight Woofness,” I saw the final numbers I was overjoyed. My other cat has accepted Sally as though he has known her forever. Thanks again, Tiffany B.
Thanks for a perfect cat – he is the best ever! Butter is funny, smart, loving and dangerous. Thanks for letting him come into our life! Melanie M.
Marcy has adjusted well to our home. She is VERY active and ornery (as most puppies are) but also very loving and we have come to realize, recently also very protective! Jackson, our son, loves his dog very much and doesn’t like to be without her. In fact, the first time we boarded her at the vet, Jackson had to come with me to drop her off and make sure she would be alright. When we picked her up, they gave us a “playtime picture” of her which he promptly hung on the refrigerator when we got home. Her favorite place to sleep is under our bed… it has sort of become her little cave and where she takes all of the sticks, rocks, paper etc. she can get a hold of to chew on. She has also just recently become very busy in the backyard chasing the black birds off of our trees so she is “on guard” very much this Spring. Mickie L.
Adopting Lucy was the best decision I've ever made. She’s playful, beautiful, and VERY cuddly! My other cat, Camille, doesn’t tolerate other cats easily, but she and Lucy are pals. She never fails to put a smile on my face! She sleeps with me every night, and is always on my lap or beside me on the couch if I’m sitting down. She LOVES drinking out of the bathroom faucet and playing on her cat tree with her sister Camille. Thank you for helping me meet my best friend! Kat H.
Hi there… We adopted Smudge about a month ago and renamed her Ellie. We were worried our existing cat Bean would be unhappy with a new cat, but it has worked wonderfully! Ellie and Bean love each other, and Ellie really loves our two basset hounds also. We are having so much fun with her and we are so thankful we found her at your adoption center. Thanks for all you do, Amanda L.
I adopted this kitty at Petsmart on 05/27/10. His number was #4521 and his name is now “Bo.” I just thought you might like to see how he is doing. You can tell he is a male because he took over the remote. We really love him and her gets along great with his two older “brothers”! Thanks you for a great pet! Kathy K.
Zoey is doing wonderful. She is growing up a storm. She and our other pup that we adopted from Great Plains Mastiff in Edmond love each other so much. Cricket is about 6 weeks older than Zoey. Thanks for keeping in touch with us. Lorida
I adopted Barkley earlier this year at the “Puppy Sale” shortly after my 8-year old Great Pyrenees mix, Samantha, passed away. While it’s been a bit of an adjustment having a puppy in the house once again, it’s also been lots of fun! Barkley is sweet, energetic and sometimes mischievous. She’s even bonded with our 14 year old lab, Millie. Her absolute favorite thing to do is get whatever ball/toy our boys are playing with in the backyard and challenge them to a game of “keep away”. She never gets tired of having little people chase her around in pursuit of their objects. Thanks so much for all you do for the animals in our community and for bringing Barkley into our lives. Riley K.
“I just wanted to send you some pics of Zeva. She’s doing great. I was really worried about her introduction to our adult male cat, Rumble, but we took it extra nice and slow and they LOVE each other. They sleep together, eat together, wrestle all the time, it was a dream come true. She gets along great with our dogs; sometimes when she claims one of the dog beds for a nap, our two dogs will double up in one bed rather than disturb her, she might rule the roost someday!” Sabrina
My cat and dog of 12 years died within six months of each other. I had moved in with my mother to care for her as her dementia became noticeably progressive. The thought of taking on new pets and caring for her didn’t seem conducive at the time. However I had noticed my mom continuing to withdraw into herself and brought her to the humane society to give her a chance to connect with some animals. My mom has had cats all her life and even though she claims to be a cat person, I had noticed she was very responsive to dogs as well. Though I had no intention of adopting that day in January I ended up leaving with a “matching” (see photo) cat, Duchess (fka Mittens), and dog, Duke (fka Chance), after a year with no pets. They have really helped my mom come out of her shell and added some much needed life to our home. Six weeks later, Annabelle joined the family as well. All thanks to the Oklahoma Humane Society. Since then we have continued to visit other animals in area shelters. The Central Oklahoma Humane Society by far has the best facilities and nicest staff. Thank you. John M.
“I have copied some pictures below of Pearl’s new life. There she is, sitting in our family room waiting to be introduced to Braden on Christmas morning! Her dog bed is beside her and you can see we got her a new sweater, collar, etc. (They have even gotten her a new coat since then!). Next, you can see Pearl and Braden’s first meeting. She automatically licked him in the face. When we first got her and were holding her to keep her a secret from Braden, she didn’t like us in her face for kisses or anything. Pearl eventually warmed up, but she kissed Braden on their first meeting. Pearl has done very well in her new home. At first, she was not eating very much, but she finally found a food she likes and has been increasing on the amounts she consumes. She sleeps with Braden in his bed every night, and if he is gone, she sleeps in her bed in my parents’ bedroom. They have all gotten accustomed to each other and she has certainly made herself a home there. She loves to snuggle in Braden’s and my parents laps whenever they are seated and we have found her temperament to just be wonderful.” -Brynn D.
“It has been one year since we adopted “Sampson,” pictured at left (lineage indeterminate). Though we were leery of owning a male dog, especially a large one, he is the sweetest dog we’ve ever owned – and we’ve had some good ones. When we took him to our vet for his initial check up, we described how he did a “bunny hop” with his back legs when he ran fast. It turned out that his left hip had been dislocated at some point in his past and never treated. We consulted with a surgeon who told us it could not be re-inserted but that he was a candidate for a procedure called a femoral head ostectomy. That, he explained, would relieve him from the joint pain that he likely already felt and that would get worse with age. He had the procedure in early October. He had a rough couple of weeks immediately following the procedure but is now as mobile as he was before the procedure and the new pseudo-joint is still strengthening. The doctor tells us that now Sampson will not experience the chronic pain that he would have had to live with the rest of his life without the surgery. He’s a great dog who has fit into our household better than we could ever have imagined. We are grateful to the Humane Society for the work they do that brought Sampson into our lives.” Mike U.
“Meredith (left) and Amelia came to me in mid-October, along with two other kittens, as my first foster experience with OK Humane. The four 6-week old kittens were tiny and covered in fleas. After a few baths, a warm bed, some toys, and excellent support from the OK Humane staff and volunteers, they transformed into bouncing, curious, and healthy kittens. After spending three weeks with the litter, I found myself incredibly attached to them, and ultimately decided to adopt Meredith and Amelia. My older cat has taken some time to get used to the idea of having other cats around, but now he sometimes forgets to act sophisticated and I catch him chasing after them playfully. It breaks my heart to think about the fate these kittens might have met, as they are now such an integral part of my family!” -Kelly P.
“I adopted Rufus in May of 2008, two weeks after my fiancée and I rescued Miley from a golden retriever rescue in OKC. They have been inseparable ever since then. Rufus started out very small but we always new that with his large paws he would grow to be taller. I didn’t know that he would be as tall as our golden! Now they are about even in dog tug of war. Rufus is excellent at retrieving golf balls that i drive in the course behind my house. When I first got Rufus his leg was hurt and he could not run very fast. He has totally healed and is now a lot faster than Miley. They both enjoy the visits to Tulsa’s Bark Park where surprisingly Rufus has an identical twin sister. I still can’t believe that someone would want to give him away and feel very fortunate to have such a wonderful dog! He is a little timid around rivers and lakes due to his fear of the fish in the arkansas but after some coaxing we get him to swim out in the river and the narrows in the wildlife refuge. His favorite thing is to bark at the buffalo. Lately, Rufus and Miley have been advocate dogs for the Alzheimer’s association, Tulsa Cares, and Chron’s and Colitis foundation. We take our dogs everywhere and they enjoy the company of all the people we meet and even our cat Angel! Thanks again for a great experience!” -Robert B.
“Our cat, Maggie Alice (yes, my son named her!), is wonderful. She is, hand’s down, one of the easiest animals we have ever had. We have 3 kids, and she loves to be in whatever room they are in. She is quiet but likes to be in whatever room our family is in. We have dogs, but she whipped them into shape in no time, and they completely ignore her. She tries to sit somewhere and whack their faces to get them to play with her, but they just squint their eyes and take it! She is an indoor cat. She sharpens her claws on the carpet and not on the furniture. We feel like she is a great addition to our family, and we couldn’t be happier!” -Kristin L.
“I really appreciate all you and the Humane Society do! We love our new “baby” and look forward to watching her grow up with our kids! Thanks again!” -Leah M.
“Juno (previously Betsy) is doing very well. She is such a sweet dog and even when she chews on shoes or whines during the night, she still finds a way to make up for it. We are very happy that we have Juno as a part of our family. She loves our cats and especially our guinea pig!” -Anna
“Our cat’s name is now Toby and he is doing absolutely wonderful. He just got his 2nd kitten shot and is currently being treated for ear mites but other than that he is a wonderful, healthy little guy. He is such a sweet little kitten and has three playmates to keep him entertained (I have 2 other cats and a dog). My 15 lb. cat “Lily” absolutely loves him and they just run, play and wrestle. He’s picked his favorite cat tree in the house… I have 4 to choose from and loves sleeping and climbing. He has now met my easy-going, laid-back dog “Crystal” who could care less about cats. It was very obvious that he hadn’t seen a big dog and tried to get as big as he could get the first time he saw her. I laughed so hard and now he just plays with her tail and hops around her like he’s going to attack, then he tears off like he scared himself. He’s been such a joy and I’m sure glad he is now a part of my family.” -Debbie H.
“Katie Scarlet and Mindy are great. They are enjoying our family and we are enjoying them. Katie had an ear infection and Mindy got upper respitory infection but both are feeling better. They are so sweet and our kids love them so much. I attached a photo of our youngest daughter Presleigh and Katie and Mindy. She is pretty much their favorite I think because she is on their level. But I’m their second fav.” The Smith Family
“We wanted to share some pictures of our sweet Chloe Jay—she is so full of energy and a blast to have in our family! I’m proud to say with the help of our schnauzer she is already potty trained and growing like a weed. Her favorite thing is to run around and play with her brother and sister. We love her so much!!” Janet B.
I adopted "Tristan," recently known as "George," towards the end of December in 2009. He has brought much entertainment to our house since the day we picked him up! Being a typical feline, he loves to randomly run wild through the house and, of course, pounce on us while we try to sleep. However, as soon as you choose to pick him up he immediately starts purring louder than any cat I have ever heard! He fits perfectly in our home along with our two Golden Retrievers, "Savanah" and "Paris." I feel so thankful to have a wonderful cat with such a personality! Our home wouldn't have near as many laughs without him! Thank you so much for this awesome cat and all the effort you put in to saving many animals' lives in our community. Kelly C.
This is Gizmo with his dad and new sister Mindy!
I changed Frankie’s name to Murphy and he is just so wonderful! He gets along great with people and other dogs…my boyfriend has a 90 pound dog and they love to play with each other! Other than that he’s been a perfectly happy and healthy dog! I just love him so much! I attached a picture of us on Christmas! Thanks so much for checking in and I hope lots of dogs are getting adopted! Sherrie E.
In April of last year I stopped by the Petsmart on NW Expressway and Rockwell. I had actually gone in just to visit the cats and kittens up for adoption because my own cat, Qat, had recently passed away. I had no intentions of adopting that evening. However, as I was playing (through the glass) with all the adoptable kitties, I came across the most beautiful tabby I've seen. He was a beautiful shade of grey brown, his paws were black on, and he had a tan underside with BLACK SPOTS!! He had very interesting markings! He was labeled "Jack" and he almost instantly jumped on the glass as I walked by. I jiggled my lanyard from my keys against the glass and he followed along. His meow sounded so sad when I walked away. I decided to play with him a little and see how we got along. We got along FABULOUSLY. He was so playful and sweet. We had an immediate connection. Although I felt slightly guilty for shortening my mourning period over Qat, I knew "Jack" needed a home and I could could give him one. He was quiet the entire drive home. He seemed to adapt almost instantly to his surroundings. He loved everyone. And they loved him. :) I renamed him "Allegro" because I felt his personality was much more lively than Jack. :) He's so well behaved. I can take him into Petsmart and he just sits in the cart. He gets along very well with our newly adopted puppy, Zelo (whom I had saved from mistreatment). We've moved recently and although he was slightly skittish for a few hours, he's adapted very well to his new surroundings. He's very well the perfect pet! Thank You! -Danica R.
My husband fall in love with Mei Li at the first sight. We took her home when she was 7 1/2 weeks old. She looked like a little bear cub. My nieces also fall in love with her at their first sight. Then.....she grow up soooooo fast. Her chubby legs become very long until everyone who see her picture will ask "Is it the same dog?" From around 8 lbs and 7 1/2 weeks, now Mei Li is 45.5 lbs and 8 1/2 months. - Lisa K.
Hi friends! It’s Liz. It’s been a little over a month since I came to my new home, so I thought I’d check in. I have to tell you, I was pretty nervous at first. I spent about a day and a half behind the big velvet curtains in my room. I still like to spend some time there, but I am trying out some new spots. I have my very own chair for watching tv or napping, but my favorite spot is laying on the floor by the fireplace with my person. Although I’m not too interested in meeting guests that come over to our house, my person and I are getting along great! I crawl up on her lap anytime I get the opportunity. She keeps telling me how her mom would absolutely love to let me sit with her, too, but I’m still working up the courage. Mostly I spend my time sleeping, but I also enjoy playing with my mouse toy and purple ribbon (sometimes at 3 a.m. if my person forgets to hide my toys at night)! Loud noises - or sometimes noises my human says she can’t even hear - send me running back to my curtains or under one of the beds, although it does give me a chance to stretch my legs and show my speed! As you remember, I had a little issue with my eye when I was there, but my person helps me keep it clean and I don’t ever even notice it. My person says thanks for taking such great care of me at the Humane Society. I think she’s almost as happy to have me as I am to finally be home! Love, Liz
Hello, my name is Carlotta B. and I want to thank you for my kitten. His name was Sagan, we renamed him Prince. He is awesome, we love him so much. I have to say, if I get another pet, I will adopt. Its the best way to get a pet. I know my kitten is healthy and has all his shots, and I have all his information. He is neutered and has a microchip, in case something happened he would be found. Adopting is the way to go. I hope others will join in and help. Thank you again I love my baby. You have made my son and I so happy. Bless you all.
This is Belle with an old pillow she loves. Do you think she is spoiled? We got her about a year ago, and she absolutely loves it here. Thanks for all you guys do! We love her! :) -Laura H.
Hugo's doing great. I honestly didn't go to the shelter expecting to adopt an animal--my husband is gone for deployment and in a strange bout of sadness I thought "I need to go play with a bunch of kittens." But adopting Hugo was really one of the best decisions I've made to curb that sadness/stress, the added companionship for me[and my other cat] has helped a lot. Before I brought him home I was actually pretty worried about how well he was going to get along with my other cat [she's never been very sociable] but he was totally fine. Ever since he's been here he's walked around like it's been his home forever. After slowly introducing them [and giving my other cat, Jill, a lot of treats] they bonded pretty quickly. I'm actually really surprised at how well they get along, they sleep together, play together, even clean each other. :) When I adopted him the workers told me he had something called cerebellar hypoplasia and I was kind of worried about that, because I've never had a pet with any sort of disability, but he doesn't have any issues with it at all- he runs and jumps and plays like normal. The only noticeable trait that I can see from it is when he lays down somewhere or in someone's lap that he's comfortable with, he just flops down and sprawls out. The only things that make him really different from my other cat are his giant paws [he's a polydactyl], he'll try to pick up his food/toys/anything on the ground with them--which is really funny and cute. He's a great cat-- friendly, playful, loving, a good companion--and I'm really glad that I decided to bring him home. -Holley
Sadie is so good! She is so sweet and cuddly, always sleeping on her back with paws stretched over her head, or in some other ridiculously cute position. My husband and I are so happy with her. She is so playful and cute and can go from running around the house like a crazy kitten to falling asleep in our arms. She is constantly purring, my husband calls it “purr power” and we joke around about who gets the most purr power based on who she loves the most...an innocent joke...but of course I take the cake! Haha. She loves to climb up the curtains which we don’t love but expected it :) We are just leaving one panel up (the one that is beyond repair) until she grows out of her kitty climbing/clawing stage, which we hope will happen at some point! She really isn’t interested in store bought toys. Her favorite thing is boxes! We have fun building her “box forts” which occupy her for hours...a good thing to present to her when my husband and I are about to sit down for dinner and don’t want her drinking out of our glasses :) We did change her name to “Birdie” although my husband says she probably thinks her name is “little baby” because that is what I call her everyday I get home from work and in the mornings. Sincerely, Ashley and David H.
I'm so lucky to have adopted Leonard, the Dachshund at the Moore PetsMart yesterday. Here he is happily sleeping in a chair in my home office just a few hours after arriving. :) -Becky
Bandit has a new name, Sammie. He has adapted to our home quite well. Sammie gets along with our soon to be 3 year old Siamese, Roxy, as well as other people. He is a purr machine! -Barbara T.
Hello, my boyfriend and I adopted "Captain Mouser" about a month ago at PetSmart (Edmond,OK). We called him Oliver. Since the first time we saw him, he attracted our attention pulling out his little legs through the cage. He's the most funny and curious kitten I have ever seen. He likes to play with us and watch us while we are cooking or washing the dishes, he follow us to everywhere and meows if we don't pay attention to him. Oliver is growing up so fast, he's very fine. He got our hearts and we love him so much. - Alejandra G.
Sweet Kari who we adopted Saturday afternoon is starting to feel quite at home already. I am so glad to have her. She is perfect! Since she has no tail and her fur is so soft, we have named her Bunny.
Here is a picture of Jellybean, who was adopted at Midnight Woofness. She was the only girl in a litter of several boys. This picture is of her outside playing with her sister (in the background) Penny (who was adopted by the shelter). She was a teeny puppy and now she is a really hyper, playful little girl who loves playing with other dogs.
2 Months ago my family and I were blessed with this little girl Patches from the Central Oklahoma Humane Society! We just wanted to say she has made our family complete so THANK YOU!!!! - Kalee
Thank you for checking in on "Hugh" .We have renamed him Ace.....He is doing wonderfully, he has a brother and a sister, both are rescue Jack Russell's as well, so they keep each other quite entertained. HEHEHE He has fit in quite nicely. He needs some basic training, like all Jack Russells, like coming on command, jumping up on people, and stuff like that. But he is not destructive, aggressive, or shy. I appreciate all the Central OK Humane Society does for homeless pets.....Thank You!!!!!!! -Amber
Thanks for all the great work you did yesterday at Black Free-Day! Those pets are lucky to have you guys! We love our Ada!
You probably won't recognize her, but this is Zoe (Now named Abbi) that I adopted at 12:55am on the first night of Midnight Woofness: A True Homecoming! I believe she was adoption number 27. She was 9 weeks old, now she is one week shy of 6 months old! My veterinarian defined her as a Maine Coon mixed with grey Tabby :) She is the most amazing SMART kitty! She loves being in windows and slinking around my apartment with her fluffy tail all puffed up (You can't see it in this picture because she hid it behind the chair, but it's a bottle brush tail!). She makes little mews when she jumps, runs, or wants food. She only likes one other dog (her Boston Terrier sissy Twiggy) and one other cat (Forrest from Santa Fe Veterinary Clinic). Her favorite things to do are ambush Forrest (he hates her) and make him swat at her, make fearless leaps from furniture to other pieces of furniture, be taken outside, sit in windows, and be pet. She is a PURRING machine! Of course, she is VERY curious ;)! I can't help but think how lucky I am to have picked her sleepy little head from Midnight Woofness. She is purrfect addition to my little family :D
Thanks for following up on Parker (formerly Squiggy.) He melted my heart at first sight and is now the center of our little world.. we couldn't be happier. My favorite part of every day is coming home to him- he wags his whole body in excitement and is such a sweet cuddle bug. He just turned 7 months old and is so well behaved for a relentlessly excited puppy!! His hair is getting really long and he is crate trained. He's loving life as much as we love having him. I've included a few pictures of Parker- as he can always make me smile, even on the worst of days : ) Thank you for bringing him into our life. Thanks again for all you and the Humane Society do for animals in need. Lauren S.
Mr. O'Malley (previously Jingo) has completed my family. We had no idea a cat would enrich our lives this much, but he isn't just any cat. O'Malley has learned to sit, stay, jump onto and over things, and lay down on command. He wakes me up every morning by rubbing on my face and laying on my chest. Thank you for the cat that changed my life! -Krystyne M.
Paul (the black one) and his new brother. We adopted Paul back around August. I could not ask for a better cat! Thank you for holding free adoptions. Einstein (the white one) has a great brother that he loves very much. -Ashten
This is Darby and her new cat Nuggette. She adopted her today! :)
This is Brock. He was adopted from OK Humane a year and a half ago. We got him as a foster when he was 3 weeks old and couldn't let him go. He'll be two years old in May :) - Amy
Thanks to everyone who put in their help at your Furry Valentine adoption event. Our new cat, Hayley, seems happy in her new home, and we love her so much already! Thank you! - Rachel
Keith is SO sweet!!!! Totally worth waiting over an hour in 20 degree weather. ;-) - Kelly
New kitty, Lucy Louise and her BFF Louie! we adopted Lucy in Nov. 2011 and she's a sweetheart! -Cheri
A special day at our house: Two years ago today, we brought Briana home from the adoption center at the Central Oklahoma Humane Society. And one year later--to the day--Rhoda came to live with us. Both Briana and Rhoda were hard-to-adopt adult cats. Both were timid--Rhoda especially. It would be weeks before she felt enough at ease to come out of hiding and let us show her the affection we already felt for her. Last night, as both Briana and Rhoda sat with us on the couch (their collective purring almost loud enough to drown out the television), we reflected on how happy they both are now, and how they have become inseperable friends. And more broadly, how much they have enriched our lives. Please consider making your home a "forever home" for a deserving dog or cat. -Don S.
I adopted BeBoP in January of 2010. I wasn't looking to adopt a dog but stopped in the Oklahoma Humane Society one Saturday and BeBoP captured my heart. BeBoP has a condition known as cerebellar hypoplasia. Cerebellar hypoplasia is a disorder found in cats and dogs in which the cerebellum is not completely mature at birth. The result of this condition is that BeBoP doesn't have a good sense of balance. His movements are somewhat jerky and he has a slight tremor when he is focused on something. BeBoP came with his name and it is fitting. He is a little over two years old and is doing WONDERFUL! He has learned to compensate for his lack of balance and likes to run, jump, play, eat, lick faces and nap just like other dogs. BeBoP enjoys playing with his cousins (my brother has two dogs) and visits to the grandparents where he is spoiled rotten. He loves to be rocked in the rocking chair and my mother is always happy to oblige. A big thanks to the humane society for saving BeBoP. He loves his forever home and I don't know what I ever did without him. -Geoff S.
My children and I adopted Sara Easter weekend of 2012. We had been tossing around the idea of getting a pet (a cat) to share our new home, but when we saw Sara at the adoption event we had to take her home. She is the world's greatest cuddle pup, always gentle, but also very playful. She has completed our little family and we couldn't be happier with her! -Rachel B.
I met Newton at the My Furry Valentines adoption event in 2012. I had originally came in looking for a different puppy, and when I found out that she had already been adopted out, I started looking around for another dog. I ended up with Newton and changed his name to Elliot because of my love for the movie "E.T." Elliot has completely changed my life and it makes me happy to think that I've changed his as well. He will be two this summer and is such a happy playful puppy. I love him to death and am so thankful to the Humane Society for helping me find my little baby! -Jill Greenwell
Cooper is a wonderful addition to our home. He is such fun for us and our other dogs as well. He is already very spoiled to sleeping in bed with me and loves to go riding in the car. He is just as sweet as can be. Thank you to the Oklahoma Humane Society for saving him so he could come home to live with us. We love him so much! -Shannon
Stella and Mr.Kitty (Vibi) are both doing great. It took a few weeks of careful introduction before they both warmed up to each other, but they have now become good friends. It's very rare that you see the two of them apart. Stella still has a lot of personality and is very talkative. She also still likes to be the boss for any of you that remember her. Mr.Kitty is also chatty and has picked up a lot of the same habits as Stella. They are both very smart and very well behaved. I am very lucky to have them both in my life. -Mark B.
In the sping of 2011 our Labrardor became very ill and we were sure she would not be with us much longer. I decided that we would look for a dog to adopt and soften the heartache for the kids when are dear sweet Lab would pass away. When we walked into the Ok humane society we could not believe what a wonderful setting it was for not only the people looking to adopt but also for the dogs. Willow(a pug/beagle mix) and her two siblings caught our eye right away. We brought Willow home and our Lab just adored her, she would actually roll around on her back and let Willow just chew on her. They played all the time and our Lab began to gain weight and look much healthier. Our old girl has since passed away but the memories of how much she loved Willow are so precious to me. Willow is an amazing dog and wins the heart of everyone she meets. She completed her Therapy dog training and will test for her certification sometime this fall. I would hope that anyone looking for a dog would come by and visit OK Humane Society, the staff if very helpful and the facility is set up in a way that makes it much easier to spend time with each dog before deciding which one to adopt. I just want to say thank you for our amazing little Puggle we love her more than you could know. - The Rimmer Family
Hi well its been 1 year since i adopted Baby on 7/19/12 ( was Allie ) she was 4 months old. She is a sweet heart and fills my life with love and joy. And she is spoiled with love, my hole living room has been turned into a cat playground :) She loves her outings Twice a day (never left alone of coarse im with her) and at night i open the window (even thow i had air conditioning on all day ) as she loves sitting in the window at night, She is very smart and i have taught her Tricks she sits up pretty and begs, she lays down, she shakes hands, and she fetches, and talks on command :) (does she think shes a dog lol ) anyway i just wanted to let you know the joy she has brought me, and i pray im the Mommy she always dreamed of. -Jenny
I adopted Lucy (Sugar) a few months ago and she is just wonderful. I had no intenion of getting another dog the day I found her. I went to Mutts event and she was there and everyone just kept passing her by. Then my friend wanted to look for a cat that evening so we went to your facility on Western and there she was again, sitting all alone. I knew I had to have her. She LOVES her ball and only wants to be loved on. She is so funny. She also runs and runs and runs with my neighbors dog when I get home. Just wanted you to know she has a great home! -Kristi
Hi, everything is going great! Darcy (formerly known as January) is doing well as the new addition to the household. She's such a friendly and affectionate cat. She loves to snuggle up and gives lots of kisses! My other cat Matisse (3 years old) was a little bit unsure of Darcy initially, but they are really growing to be great friends! Little by little Matisse has been playing with Darcy, giving each other baths, and snuggling together. I attached a great pic of Darcy sleeping on Matisse! She went to the vet the first week I got her and was given a clean bill of health and some necessary shots. She'll be going again this week for some additional shots and checkup. I do know about her microchip (and am glad she has one!) Darcy like my other cat Matisse is strictly indoors. They both have plenty of windows to check out though, so they still get to be a part of all the action. I'm just so happy that Darcy has made a great addition to the family and that she and Matisse are fast becoming friends. If you have any other questions, I'd be happy to answer them! - Elizabeth
Pepper and her new mommy...she is so sweet! thanks so much...you all do such good work! ? The Shutts Family
I adopted Fiona (her name was Pumpkin) one year ago today! She has made my life better and I'm so thankful to the Humane Society for her! -Laura
Feta and Brie (previously Ice and Maverick) made the long drive from Oklahoma to Green Bay, WI on a transport. When Feta and Brie arrived, the plan was for me to foster them for just a few days until a spay date was set for them. I picked out these 2 peanuts and brought them home and immediately fell in love with them! Feta and Brie and completely inseparable and SPOILED! These girls immediately made themselves at home, winning over everyone in my home. When I was told what their spay date would be, I begged to foster them for just a bit longer to win over everyone 110%. After contacting Central Oklahoma Humane Society, and finding out the story of the girls, I just fell in love even more. I could not bare the thought of bringing them back and them possibly being separated, so we made it official! They were made members of our family and for all they cared, they were already staying for life! These 2 girls continue to make me laugh every day! Everything from eating, sleeping and going outside MUST be done together. Whines and barks emerge when they are separated from each other, but they are learning to adjust. These 2 are so smart already, but have been put in doggy class to learn some more manners. Thank you SO much Central Oklahoma Humane Society for caring for these girls before they were sent up to Wisconsin! Please know that they are being overly cared for and spoiled rotten! -Jessica
We love Max! Thank you! -Sara
Captain Hook (Now Sulu) has already made himself at home! He is an amazing kitty with an absolutely loving attitude. For all you looking he has a brother (Midnight) still available. He almost came with us as well, it was a tough decision, and an even tougher one to separate them. Thanks so much for what you all do this guy was a steal for the meager adoption fee. -Stephen
JJ(boxer mix) a recent transfer to GB, WI, is now Shasta & has found a loving home in the country near Pulaski, WI with lots of room to run and play! We are so happy we found her! -Anne
We love our Central Oklahoma Humane Society rescue, Macaroni aka Mac (Oscar when we adopted him), SO much. He completes our home. We are forever grateful for your organization!! -Amy
Today is one month since we adopted sweet Annie! She's put on a couple of pounds so she is a much healthier weight, and we affectionately call her "Bananas" due to her love of running in circles like a maniac through the yard. Her favorite things to do are play with her bone, cuddle, and give kisses to everyone she meets. She has really come out of her shell, and we love her so much! -Blair
Cocoa, now renamed Sophie, has completed our little family unit starting from the day we brought her home. It's amazing how she picked us, or should I say, she chose my husband. She is my husband's first dog and she has already learned so much as well as taught us a bunch. It was like she was meant to be with us and vice versa. She is very well behaved and listens to us. The only thing we need to work on with her is for her not to pull so much during walks but that will take time to correct (and my husband and I both know she will catch on like a champ). Overall, she is just an awesome dog. -The Hogue Family
Hello! I was so lucky to stumble upon Mac at the shelter. I can't even begin to explain what a perfect match it has turned out to be. Living alone can be a bit lonely, but with Mac around, there's never a dull moment. He either wants to cuddle, play, or EAT. Also, three of my favorite things. He brings such joy to my daily life, and everyone else's! There isn't a soul who's met him that didn't instantly fall in love. Even people who claim they aren't "dog people" flock to his side. He is the perfect dog for me! Thank you OKhumane! -Marji
Brussel Sprout (now Johnnie Walker) was adopted in May 2012 and has been a fantastic addition to my home! Although he's a typical crazy kitten, I absolutely adore him. His big brother Jim Beam has taken to him swimmingly! Thank you so much for saving his little life by pulling him and his litter-mates from the city shelter and bringing him into your program. I would have never brought him into my life otherwise. -Michelle
Our dog Hana was a great addition to our family. She is very smart, it only took one day to house train her and she is very well behaved. She was only three months old when we adopted her from the OKC Humane Society. Funny story the day we adopted her was the same day that there was a freakish hail storm in OKC. We were in Pets Smart buying all the new items for our new dog and a hail storm came and but over 18,000 dollars of damage to my car. But it was all worth it because our new addition to our family has been a joy. -Matthew
Just dropping by and giving ya'll an update, Durant is doing great! He loves his older bigger sister, though she pushes him away a lot, there are moments when they play but he has sooooo much energy...his pottey training is doing okay..still have a few accidents but he is a puppy...Durant loves to play fetch, and rough housing. Does great at dog parks and around children...me and randi are thinking about putting him through some real training to become a therapy dog, he is so loving and we want to share it with the world. Anyways, that's pretty much it. We will keep you guys in the loop with durant. -Courtney
Debbie and I wanted everyone at the Humane Society to know that Navi is doing well. She is still a bit skittish but she is adjusting more each day. As you can see by the first two pictures she can relax very well. We enjoy her and will take great care of her. Nothing can replace our Mickey (3rd picture), who died at 3 years old of leukemia on July 2. We rescued Mickey as a kitten from a McDonald's in Oklahoma City when she was barely able to walk. We didn't get her checked for leukemia and it wouldn't have mattered if we had known. It broke our hearts when she got sick and ultimately died. Many of the things that Navi does remind us of Mickey. She has been a joy to be in our house and a source of great comfort and solace. Thanks for letting us take Navi home. -Mike and Debbie
I wanted to let you know that adopting Coco was the best thing I have done. She is a brilliant wee dog, she loves everyone and has become a good friend to my other dog Loofah. They like to play and cuddle, and Coco makes sure Loofah knows what is going on. She likes her tennis balls and squeaky toys, and Keep Away is her favorite game. We like to take trips to the dog park and run around with other dogs, though humans are still her favorite. Here is a pic of the two of them, taken a few days after Coco came home with me. Loofah is in the front, Coco in back. -Christine
I adopted Casanova when he came up to Wisconsin on a transport. He is the sweetest little chihuahua I've ever met! As soon as I saw him arrive at our shelter, I knew he'd be coming home with me, it was just something about the way he cuddled into me as soon as I picked him up! Casanova now spends his days playing with his new brothers (A cattle dog and two kitties!), and always, always cuddling with us. He is a dream of a dog, in all honesty, I don't know how I could go my life without him. He adds so much joy and energy into our house. He's such an amazing little boy, and he always has such a huge smile on his face! -Kayla
We adopted Brody about 2 or 3 months ago and words can not describe how awesome our little man is, Brody has brought so much joy to our family! He is a lab/basset hound mix which are called bassadors its a whole lot of personality on little legs! Thank you so much Human society for bringing this loving boy into our lives! -Kylee and Chantry
We adopted Ashley she was pet of the week on channel 9 news back in November of last year.. We have a boy chihuahua named Chico and we wanted a playmate for him.. We fell in love with this little girl when we saw her and we did change her name to Nina.. She has been a joy to us and is very spoiled and lovable .. She loves her home and her friend Chico she is crazy about.. My husband just adores her too! - Mandy Hill
We adopted Kitty (formerly Adele) a little over a year ago. Within the first two hours of bringing her home we knew she was a perfect fit for our family. Our daughter who was almost 2 at the time was starting to take an interest in Hello Kitty, and wouldn't call her by any other name. She is the perfect combination of cuddly and playful. She is also the most patient cat I've ever seen. She's so gentle when the kids are playing with her! We couldn't be more happy with our experience adopting! -The Callovi Family
Cosmi is doing great and growing like a weed. Our great dane is just now warming up to him as her hip dysplasia has been bothering her and made her pretty grumpy. Our pit bull however thinks he is Cosmi's dad and has been a great playmate. I am aware of the microchip and i will check the info online. Have a great day, the Bolings
I was a bit nervous at first when I don't know whether Chewy would fit in our environment, has he been housetrained or good with kids. After two days of quick training, he goes outside by himself and not go to places in the house the he is permitted to. My kids bond great with him. Anyways, I really happy to have Chewy as part of our family. Thanks, Thai.
Hi guys!Thought I should give you an update on Twix!(Adopted April 2012) He's such a sweet and loving boy! He celebrated his first birthday a couple of weeks ago(: (October 25) He loves to snuggle and lick you!He likes to help me with my homework..okay more like sitting on my books and wanting attention..(: He also adores belly rubs,and loves to play! Overall I love my babyboy! Thank you Humane Society! -Kristin
We adopted Sweetie Pie (original name Allie) in November, 2011, almost a year ago to the day. Sweetie Pie lives up to her name, and everyone that sees her tells us how wonderful she is----but we know that already. She has brought us much joy, and is sort of a rescue dog as well. Paul is disabled and Sweetie Pie does a very fine job of playing with and protecting him. When we visit the nursing home, Sweetie Pie loves to visit the residents, and always brings a smile to their faces. We thank the Humane Society for their wonderful service, and feel fortunate to have adopted this precious little dog. -Candy and Paul
Thunder has been a great addition to the family. The other pets I have love him and I couldn't be happier! I'm glad I went to this great place! I know his foster mom told me a lot about him before we adopted him, they are so helpful! I love my border collie mix! :) -p.s. the picture is after his first bath with us! LOL! -Savannah
I thought I would send you an update on the little bundle of joy and energy we were lucky enough to adopt a couple of months back. Hank, now Odis, is the best addition to our family! He loves naps with his big sister Pepper and has discovered how much fun fetch and tug of war are with his big brother Sheldon. Pepper is the miniature dachshund and Sheldon is our golden retriever and they have been great about welcoming him to the family. He loves his evening walk with Sheldon and has learned to follow his nose everywhere .He has graduated from puppy training at Petsmart and is now in intermediate training!!! We love him so much and are greatful for your help in finding our new baby. -John and Stephanie Cable
Rocket is a big baby! He acts like he is an old man and loves lay and sleep with us . He is getting use to things in our new home and enjoys playing with our pointer puppy. Our one year old daughter just LOVES him. She loves to lay on his bed with him. What a great addition to our family! -The Vann family
Monty came home with us three years ago (on Mothers Day). Our family found Monty at the shelter and was lucky to follow him to the Central Oklahoma Humane Society. We could not imagine our family without Monty. His personality is so striking, everyone that meets him loves him, and he has friends every where we go. I know several familys wanted him to be apart of thier family. I am just so thankful that our family was given the chance to raise him and love him. Thank you Central Oklahoma Humane Society for the perfect addition to our family. The Rodriguez Family.
Hello, my name is Sandy, and I adopted this sweet puppy, whom my son has named: Kohl. He is lab/shephard mix and is just simply precious. He loves to run around the back yard and roll around in the grass. He is a great addition to our family and I am so blessed that I was able to foster him, which has now turned into a permant adoption! Thanks again Central Ok Humane Society!! -Sandy
About 2 months ago I adopted Winnie at the Woofness of Wheels event. She is such a wonderful little dog, and has brought so much laughter and joy into my life. I discovered when I brought her home that she was already potty trained and knew how to sit on command! Winnie is a smart cookie and is going to start puppy class in a couple weeks, she is destined to be the star student. She loves to go on walks and snuggle up on the couch. I'm so thankful for adopting Winnie from you guys. -Carla M.
Oliver is the best cat in the whole world! I grew up with many animals, but he tops them all! He has so much personality for a cat; he acts almost like a loyal dog. He follows me around like a little shadow and never hides. He comes when he is called, loves toys, plays fetch, and sleeps next to my pillow every night. I travel with him often, which he enjoys, and he gets along great with other dogs and cats. He makes me so happy, I am thankful every day to have him in my life. I really appreciate all the wonderful things the OKC Humane Society does for animals! -Lindsay M.
Meet Godfrey (the Weenie Dog on the right.... on the left is his "brother" Gryffin). I originally went in to the Humane Society looking for a larger-breed of dog. I went in at least once a week for 3 months. One day I went in to check out a dog and saw this skinny Dachshund curled up on a blanket. Touched I walked over to give him a comforting ear scratch. I stood up and walked away toward the dog I was intending to adopt... I looked over my shoulder and saw "Jackson" (Godfrey's name at the time) dragging a toy onto his blanket to play with. Despite his near-emaciated state, it impressed me that the lil' guy had enough energy to be friendly to me and want to play. I was sold and brought him home the next day. He and Gryffin are best buds and love to wrestle around. I'm very thankful for what the Humane Society does; they bring in animals ready for your home... I can't imagine mine without him! -Emily B.
Back in July, I fell in love with the prettiest dog ever and she has been the best addition to my family that I could ever ask for. She truly is one of the kids and knows she is the biggest baby! She has come so far from when we first adopted her where she was very shy and timid and now she is the friendliest dog ever. She is so smart and listens wonderfully and her favorite thing about being at home is cuddling on the couch. She will take your seat in a heartbeat on the couch because she thinks that is hers. I can't imagine a day without her welcoming me at the door or wagging her tail at me in the morning and in the future when Honey needs a playmate we will most certainly be looking at the Central OK Humane Society again. Thank you! -Theresa
I adopted Cosmo after fostering him. He is a constant snuggler and learns tricks so quickly. He is my running sidekick, loves to sit in the passenger seat to run errands, and if he's bored will literally throw his bone in the air and chase it by himself. It's always exciting to come home to his face in the window, his full-time job being a guard dog. He watches the front porch and warns of strangers with his deep bark! I am at least his 3rd home and he's not yet 2 years old, but I think he knows this is his forever home. He is so incredibly loyal and always makes me feel safe! The best part of Cosmo is that he loves new friends! Which is why we have continued to foster and bring him a new buddy every few weeks. Couldn't be luckier! -Caitlin
This past winter, I was looking for a miniature Dachshund to adopt to keep Ray, my other miniature Dachshund, company. My greatest dream was to find a silver dapple. I started checking OK Humane's website and one day in January I see the perfect dog on there, Leonard. I called immediately and was told he would be at the PetsMart in Moore, OK that Saturday and I would have to wait until then. On pins and needles, my sister and I drove to PetsMart early that Saturday morning. We were there before the dogs arrived and I filled out the paperwork and waited. Watching, the door, I soon see Leonard coming through the door with his foster mom. I knew he was the one! Leonard has proven to be a real joy. He's smart, sweet and all Dachshund! He spends the day chasing squirrels in my yard with Ray. Leonard and Ray have bonded well and stick together like glue. I am so lucky to have found Leonard and look forward to many years with this cute lilttle Doxie! -Becky
Bailey is absolutely wonderful. She has become an immediate member of our family. She even has a "little sister" and an "older cousin" to play with every day. The three dogs get along wonderfully. She is very special and is truly loved. :) If I can get the "three girls" (the three dogs) Bailey, Saushya, and Hailey to sit still long enough, I will take a picture of them and send it to you. :) In the mean time, attached is a picture of Bailey enjoying the evening on this past Saturday. -Jennifer
We adopted Sassy and Americus. Two 11 year old, brother and sister, Ragdolls. Their owner passed away and when we saw them we knew we could give them and good and loving home. They immediately bonded with our 3 yr old Maine Coon rescue. If you are considering adopting, please consider an older cat...they have lots of love to offer. -Kim
Wanted to share this pic, he's striking a pose! He was my first foster and I couldn't part with him so now he's a member of the family. Thank you so much for saving Wylie, he's an incredible dog!! -Cindy
We adopted Tilly (formerly Mathilda) at the adoption event at the OK Science Museum in October 2012. She is a wonderful, loving little dog who got used to our 5 cats very quickly and our older dog Rosie. She loves nothing better than to sit on a lap as often as possible and be cuddled. We were first attracted to her because she looked so shy at the back of the crate when we first saw her, and we knew we could give her the love she needs. Thanks so much for letting us adopt our wonderful little Tilly, and rest assured she has a loving home for life now. Here is a picture of her enjoying a chew :) -Karen C.
We adopted Molly in December 2012 at the adoption event at PetSmart in Edmond. Our beloved Pomeranian, Lucy, crossed the Rainbow Bridge almost two years ago and we didn't know if we wanted to love again. We are small dog people, and occasionally when we see or hear of an adoption event, we'll drop by to see. This day there was a Chihuahua adoption event, and I was all for seeing what was available. We walked up and Molly caught my eye immediately because she had long hair, so I asked my questions. I started to get kind of excited when I learned that Molly was a female, house trained, crate trained, fixed, a young age and liked children and adults. When I asked to hold her, she came willingly into my arms and settled in! I was done-sign me up! She seemed very much a Molly so we kept her name. Since Molly has joined our family, we have discovered exactly what a cuddle bug she is. She would gladly ride around in my arms all day if I allowed it. Our adoption experience with the Central Oklahoma Humane Society has been a pleasure and we highly recommend this organization to anyone looking to find a four legged friend. -The Alexander Family
Something was missing from our soon to be household since we were to wed 10-20-12. I just knew it was most definitely a pup wanting nothing more than to be loved. I visited the location on Western twice before deciding she was the perfect match. I originally went in to adopt her momma since she was 2, but my soon to be husband reminded me that the best way to choose a dog is to not choose it at all, but rather let it choose you. I truly feel Roxie chose us and we could not be any happier. She was the easiest puppy to potty train and loves cuddles and kisses. She's funny in that she wants to be by my side when we are up and about, but come night time, she wants to be snuggled up to my husband. She was the best wedding gift ever!! :) -The Scott Family
Omri is a irish wolf hound mix and is super sweet shortly after adopting her we found out on of her favorite hobbies she will not chew a shoe up but would rather just smell them haha she love Brody our bassador who was also adoptee from ok humane. She is a silly fun loving girl and a blessing to our family! :) Thank you ok humane for not one but two amazing dogs! :) -Chantry
Lila, as we now call her, is doing well. She is the perfect combination of playful, energetic pup and cuddle bug. My two boys enjoy playing in the backyard with her, taking her for walks (when it is not cold outside), and cuddling with her at bedtime. She gets along with our older dog Lucy, as the two like looking outside the front window and barking at passersby. She potty-trained very quickly. She loves to chew, so we've invested in lots of kong and other dog toys. She particularly loves eating our slippers, has eaten a few stuffed animals, legos and went under our bed and ate a lamp cord. But she is a pup, so no harm done. She has been a wonderful addition to our family, and we can't imagine our home without her. -Jennifer
Shes happy and crazy. Climbs up the curtains constantly and jumps on the dogs back. Were very happy with her shes still really small, but eats a ton. She goes by Jynx now, I have attached a picture of her and Carlton (the dog). -Maddie
I wanted to tell you that I adopted the sweetest dog from there in December. Her name was Poke, but I renamed her Mazie. She is the best! Picture attached! -Lisa
We adopted Leo who we call Nanook from the Woofness on Wheels event in October. Our little guy fit into our family from the very first day! He's a great best friend for female Corgi and a snuggly heater for our two cats. At 6 and 1/2 months, he weighs over 60 pounds and don't seem to be stopping anytime soon. I've never been around a sweeter dog in my life. He is extremely gentle, has never met a stranger, very laid back, loves kiddos, and eager to please. He's taken to hiking (our favorite past time) like a mountain goat. We actually call him Nanny Goat. We couldn't have asked for a better match for our family! Thanks Central Oklahoma Humane Society! -Katie G.
Introducing Biscuit Marie! (aka Lolly) I adopted Biscuit in December 2012 as a surprise Christmas gift for my three children. Biscuit has been such a blessing to our family! She has adjusted beautifully and all three of my children just love her! She is so sweet, fun, playful and very well behaved! She loves to play with her toys and loves to chase her little red laser dot all over the house. Sitting in the window with the sun in her face is her favorite place to be in the early morning, but she always makes her way to Mommy's bed at night. Adopting Biscuit Marie completed our family and we couldn't be happier! -Jennifer, Payton, Rylee & Jordan
He is the best. He is so much fun and we love him! Thanks! -Donna and Jim
Hello, my name is Allie and I adopted my little tabby cat, Weasley, on Feb. 4th. When I first brought him to my boyfriend's house (where he currently lives) he was introduced to 3 cats who already lived there. One if the 3 resident cats just was not a big fan of the newcomer. Sarge (the aggravated cat) would follow Weasley around and just really scrutinize his every move. I don't know when it happened but these two boys have become the best of friends and my boyfriend, John, was lucky enough to capture this picture when he got home from work one day! Enjoy! -Allie
We adopted Sammie (gray/white) for my stepson just before Christmas 2012 and Archie (black/white) in December 2008. We were a little concerned about how Archie would react, but as you can see in the picture, it is a match made in heaven! Sammie is the perfect addition to our family and has definitely enriched all of our lives and she even gets along great with our two dogs. She has an incredible personality, she is very loving and extremely vocal. She keeps us entertained constantly. We are all just absolutely crazy about her and I can't thank the Humane Society enough for introducing us. Keep up the awesome work! -Lori
We adoped Bo a few weeks ago and he has fit in so well in our family. Our daughter loves him and they have such fun together. He loves to be wrapped in a blanket and carried around. He is such a love bug and has brought lots of activity back into the life of our 14 year old Jack/Rat. We used to have 3 dogs and after 2 passed, our Jack/Rat got very lonely. Bo loves to run and play with her and especially enjoys running around our backyard, barking at the shadows of those passing by and chasing birds and bugs out of his territory. We walk him through the Plaza District and he everyone oohs and aahs over him, as he is Super Cute to us! -Theresa
We adopted "Maggie" and renamed her Gracie in 2007. She is the most amazing little member of our family. She loves to go running and chase balls and sleep in bed with her mommy and daddy. Thank you so much to the Humane Society and her pet foster family for keeping her safe until she met us! -The Schell Family
We adopted Cuddles- now Chito at the Midnight Wolfness event two years ago. I had read about how an animal can help reduce stress and I thought a little help with stress reduction sounded great. I knew I wanted a small dog and when I saw Chito on the dogs for adoption page, I knew instantly he was the dog for me. He has brought so much joy and laughter to our entire family. We all love him so much. He is so playful and loving (and a pretty spoiled little guy too.) He actually LOVES to cuddle and our daughter says we should not have changed his name because it fit him perfectly. I always tell people about the OK Humane Society and encourage others to adopt and open their home for more love than they would ever anticipate. -Julia D.
We adopted Oreo AKA Crash last Saturday at the Omniplex and I found this paper inside the bag asking for pictures. We have already had so much fun. We got lucky when we saw Oreo and he was still available! So we scooped him up and played with him for a minute and just knew he had to come home and become a part of our family! And the rest is history! Here is Oreo hanging out with my youngest daughter. -The Tiller Family
I adopted Shadow on 4/20/2013 at the adoption event that was going on at the Science Museum of Oklahoma. He originally had the name "Webster" but ever since I brought him home, he will follow me everywhere so I had to change his name to "Shadow;" I believe it fits him very well. Shadow has been a great pet and companion, he is well behaved and makes me smile every day. He loves to cuddle at night and for the most part he is very obedient. I am so happy I adopted him, and thank you Humane Soceity for making this possible. :) -Angela Looper
This is Satie-the white one (fka Birch), named for the composer, with his sister Touchka (little rain cloud). He is an adorable little cuddly baby who chose me at an adoption event at PetSmart. He has the loudest purr and loves to snuggle up next to whomever is available. We just can't imagine life without our cuddly baby. -Aaron S.
We adopted Leo who we call Nanook from the Woofness on Wheels event in October. Our little guy fit into our family from the very first day! He's a great best friend for female Corgi and a snuggly heater for our two cats. At 6 and 1/2 months, he weighs over 60 pounds and doesn't seem to be stopping anytime soon. I've never been around a sweeter dog in my life. He is extremely gentle, has never met a stranger, very laid back, loves kiddos, and eager to please. He's taken to hiking (our favorite past time) like a mountain goat. We actually call him Nanny Goat. We couldn't have asked for a better match for our family! Thanks Central Oklahoma Humane Society! - Katie G.
Hello to all my friends at the shelter! I just wanted to let you all know how well Heath (was Hea) is doing and just how much fun he is having with his new best friend! This is a picture taken just a few days after his adoption! I am so eternally grateful to you all for what you do. When I entered the shelter with DJ's blanket that day, I had every intention on getting a female playmate his age so he wouldn't be bullied but from the moment I picked him up he snuggled right into the blanket and rubbed his face against mine he stole my heart. He is now a happy, healthy little guy who enjoys spending his days with his new best friend and his nights snuggled up with his forever mommy! Thanks again guys! You made this all possible! - Tamara
We adopted Sammie (gray/white) for my stepson just before Christmas 2012 and Archie (black/white) in December 2008. We were a little concerned about how Archie would react, but as you can see in the picture, it is a match made in heaven! Sammie is the perfect addition to our family and has definitely enriched all of our lives and she even gets along great with our two dogs. She has an incredible personality, she is very loving and extremely vocal. She keeps us entertained constantly. We are all just absolutely crazy about her and I can't thank the Humane Society enough for introducing us. Keep up the awesome work! Lori
Mr. O'Malley (previously Jingo) has completed my family. We had no idea a cat would enrich our lives this much, but he isn't just any cat. O'Malley has learned to sit, stay, jump onto and over things, and lay down on command. He wakes me up every morning by rubbing on my face and laying on my chest. Thank you for the cat that changed my life! - Krystyne M.
We adopted Bo a few weeks ago and he has fit in so well in our family. Our daughter loves him and they have such fun together. He loves to be wrapped in a blanket and carried around. He is such a love bug and has brought lots of activity back into the life of our 14 year old Jack/Rat. We used to have 3 dogs and after 2 passed, our Jack/Rat got very lonely. Bo loves to run and play with her and especially enjoys running around our backyard, barking at the shadows of those passing by and chasing birds and bugs out of his territory. We walk him through the Plaza District and he everyone oohs and aahs over him, as he is Super Cute to us! - Theresa
We adopted "Maggie" and renamed her Gracie in 2007. She is the most amazing little member of our family. She loves to go running and chase balls and sleep in bed with her mommy and daddy. Thank you so much to the Humane Society and her pet foster family for keeping her safe until she met - Schell Family
We adopted Cuddles- now Chito at the Midnight Wolfness event two years ago. I had read about how an animal can help reduce stress and I thought a little help with stress reduction sounded great. I knew I wanted a small dog and when I saw Chito on the dogs for adoption page, I knew instantly he was the dog for me. He has brought so much joy and laughter to our entire family. We all love him so much. He is so playful and loving (and a pretty spoiled little guy too.) He actually LOVES to cuddle and our daughter says we should not have changed his name because it fit him perfectly. I always tell people about the OK Humane Society and encourage others to adopt and open their home for more love than they would ever anticipate. - Julia D.

Hello! I recently adopted Saushy, which is now Snooki! She is a very happy and loving kitty that has made our family complete! She is such a joy to have around. She greets me at the door when I get home and never leaves my side. Snooki is surprisingly playful for her size :) she sleeps by my head all night and has made best friends with my "boo" kitten. She has really brightened my everyday! You guys are awesome, keep doing what your doing! - Lauren H.

Lucy is doing great! She made herself right at home from the first day she came to stay with us. We love her so much and her sister and two brothers are inseparable. I have attached a few pics of her. We can't imagine our family or house without her. - Lisa
We knew right away that FM later renamed Pinky would fit right in. Now she has a best friend who loves her more than anything. She is always with my son and he always wants to be around her. She is such a great addition to our family since she is so patient and loving with my son. - Morales Family
We fostered and then adopted Crusher, we knew he was already home! He is perfect, and still being a puppy he is way better then you could imagine!! Him and our son are only a week apart in age (8 months) and they are inseparable! He is so gentle and laid back, just lays there while our some climbs all over him. Despite being deaf he is our most obedient dog, following hand commands and vibrations. We love him so much and are so happy to add one more 4 legged rescue child to our home! - Michelle
We adopted Charmander at the science musuem. We changed his name to RA. He has been an wonderful addition to the family. His favorite thing to do it attack the butterfly bedspread. - Richmond Family
Spy is the sweetest best behaved puppy we have ever had! In the few short days we’ve had him, he has added so much life and joy to our family. The house is now filled with his fetch balls and stuffed animals (my husband says that I’ve spent more on spy in the last 5 days than I have on him in the last 12 months); he practically house trained himself the first day, loves to run around the block, fetch, and learn new tricks. He already knows sit, lie down, stand, come, and stay. Smart pup! My husband and I are looking forward to having him for many years to come. - Coleman Family
By Susannah Hall, Adoption Center Assistant Manager Bootsie is the perfect counterexample to those who claim “cats have no personality.” She came to OK Humane as a momma cat with kittens. Once she weaned her kittens she quickly earned a reputation for ruling the cat living rooms. She would guard the door and slip out [...]
