Oklahoma City Animal Welfare has many life-saving programs that help our community's pets.
We're proud of our progress and we encourage you to review our annual statistics to track the care of animals in the OKC Animal Shelter.
Live Release Rate is the percentage of animals that come into the OKC Animal Shelter that are reunited with their owners, adopted directly or placed into a transfer partner's adoption program. As an example, the live release rate in 2015 was 70 percent. That means seven out of every 10 animals that came into the OKC Animal Shelter were reunited, adopted or transferred.
Intake is the number of animals that come into the OKC Animal Shelter. OKC Animal Welfare's proactive responsible pet ownership programs have contributed to the recent decline in the intake rate.
Placements are animals that entered the OKC Animal Shelter and were eventually reunited with their owners, adopted or placed into one of our transfer partner's adoption programs.
