The Oklahoma City Animal Shelter is open for adopting or reclaiming pets from 12:00 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. every day except holidays at SE 29 & Bryant, 1.5 miles east of I-35.
Unwanted animals may be dropped off at the receiving office any day between 9:00 a.m. and 5:45 p.m. There are after-hour emergency drop-off cages available when the receiving office is closed. They can be accessed by entering the front door of the shelter.
The Animal Welfare Division is responsible for promoting public health and safety, for temporarily sheltering and providing humane disposition of unwanted or lost animals, and for promoting animal welfare so that pet ownership is a pleasure for owners without becoming a burden to the community.
Will you help a beautiful shelter pet by donating to their care? You can demonstrate your compassion by donating to Oklahoma City Animal Welfare through a variety of donation accounts that directly help shelter pets and other animals. Donations to the OKC Animal Welfare Division are tax deductible and can be itemized as a charitable contribution on your tax return. Make a donation
Although adopted pets are removed from our listings daily, there is still a chance a pet you see here may find a home before you arrive. But there are always plenty more! Come and visit the new shelter and meet all the pets who need a home.
How to Adopt
The Oklahoma City Animal Shelter is located at SE 29 and Bryant. Adoption hours are 12:00 p.m. to 5:45 p.m., every day except holidays.
Where to Adopt
In addition to the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter, animal volunteer groups offer 'outreach' adoption services at various PetSmart locations. Click here for regularly scheduled outreaches. Many of our cats are also available at the Midwest City PetSmart store every day. For additional information on our outreach program please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have been bitten by an animal, you should seek medical attention immediately. Animal bites should be reported directly to Public Services at 405-297-2255. If you see an animal that is behaving abnormally, stay away from it and notify the City immediately. To report stray animals, barking dogs, animal cruelty or deceased animals, please use the Action Center Service Request Form.
Animal Welfare also disposes of dead animals for City residents and has humane traps for loan to catch stray cats and dogs.
We can provide a speaker for neighborhood meetings or community events.
