Free pet adoptions Saturday at OKC Animal Welfare with shelter overcrowded

Post Date:06/13/2018 1:35 PM

Help save the lives of homeless pets at the over-capacity OKC Animal Welfare shelter by adopting a dog or cat for free on Saturday.

OKC Animal Welfare must find homes for at least 200 pets this weekend to avoid euthanizing otherwise healthy and adoptable homeless pets, said Superintendent Jon Gary.

“We need the community’s help to save lives. It’s that simple,” said Gary. “The summer is a busy time, and we have to clear space for more animals by the end of the weekend.”

The free adoption event is set for noon to 5:30 p.m. Saturday at OKC Animal Welfare, 2811 SE 29th Street.

All adoptable animals at OKC Animal Welfare are microchipped, up-to-date on vaccinations, treated for worms and spayed or neutered. It’s open for adoptions from noon to 5:30 p.m. every day but holidays. Visit okc.gov/animalwelfare or call (405) 297-3100 for more.
