Oklahoma City Animal Welfare field officers help keep OKC safe and rescue animals in need.

They enforce OKC animal ordinances and educate the public on responsible pet ownership. Officers respond to calls in the City of OKC from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day of the year and are on-call overnight for emergencies.

  • The City of Oklahoma City offers a Trap Neuter Release (TNR) program for feral cats, known as the Community Cat Program. If a member of the community brings a feral cat to the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter, the cat will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated for rabies and returned to where it was trapped or captured. There is no cost to the public for this program. The program helps manage free-roaming cat populations without harming them and can eventually lead to a humane end to a cat overpopulation situation in your neighborhood. Oklahoma City Animal Welfare encourages the public to take part in this program. We will loan you a trap at no cost. Cats may be brought to the OKC Animal Shelter at 2811 SE 29th Street between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., seven days a week, except major holidays. For more information on the Community Cat Program and its benefits, please read our printable flyer about feral cats or email
