Half-price puppy and dog adoptions and special events for ‘Dogtober’ at OKC Animal Welfare
“Dogtober” is here in Oklahoma City, with half-price dog and puppy adoptions and special events all October long from OKC Animal Welfare.
“Dogtober is great not only because of the adoption specials, but because the fall weather is great to spend time outside with your new pet,” said OKC Animal Welfare Superintendent Jon Gary. “Stop by Animal Welfare any day of the month, or visit us at one of our special events.”
Aside from the everyday $30 dog adoption special, Dogtober celebrations include these adoption events:
