Half-price puppy and dog adoptions and special events for ‘Dogtober’ at OKC Animal Welfare

Post Date:10/03/2019 8:30 AM

“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:

All adoptable animals from OKC Animal Welfare are microchipped, up-to-date on vaccinations, treated for worms and spayed or neutered.

The OKC Animal Welfare shelter, 2811 SE 29th Street, is open for adoption noon to 5:30 p.m. every day but holidays.

Visit to search for adoptable pets and get tips on responsible pet ownership.

OKC Animal Welfare launched the Alive in the 405 campaign this summer to raise awareness about reaching its longtime goal of a 90% live release rate. Click here for more information about Alive in the 405.
