Molly stole our hearts three years ago, when we stumbled upon an adoption event and saw a tiny slip of a dog curled up in the back of her crate. She came home that day and soon discovered the joy of couches, beds, scritches, and regular meals. Little Molly-dog had been a hoarder rescue and it was immediately obvious that she had a very special place in OK Save A Dog's hearts as well. Molly (or Storm, as she was known at OKSAD) is still a little slip of a thing who, after spending the first two years in a cage, will lay down in the grass in the backyard and simply look at the world around her.

OKSAD does some good work and I, for one, am eternally grateful that they were on hand to rescue Molly and willing to let her come home with me. I can't imagine life without Molly. Thank you, OKSAD!

Three years ago we adopted an absolutely perfect terrier mix. She was a horder dog and so shy that if we sneezed she would run and hide. Now she is the most personable dog I have ever met. If you sneeze she runs to check on you and give kisses, or boop your nose with a little paw.

So a earlier this year when we started looking for another baby to play with her, we knew exactly where to go. Sunshine is amazing and one of the greatest people have ever met.

Adopted a dachshund from Sunshine several years ago who is one of our spoiled furbabies. They are the best & have such a love for the animals. When ready to adopt again will definitely go back to this special group.

The three dogs living with us now are all from this rescue. We have adopted others that have moved out with our grown kids. The dogs are known by the volunteers at the rescue so they can be paired well with prospective families.
Dogs at the rescue roam free in fenced enclosures rather than having to be caged. This means their interaction with other animals can be observed which, again, results in better placements.
Commitment to the animals is paramount at this rescue. Sometimes that results in unhappy people (who don't get a dog unsuited for their home) but that's okay. OKSave a Dog exists solely to save dogs and improve their lives. They are stellar at achieving that mission.
They have been around a long time and have helped countless dogs move on from tragic circumstances.

These gals work hard to find loving homes for the animals in their rescue. The welfare, happiness and care of the dogs are a priority and it shows. I have volunteered with Sunshine at 2 adoption events and have donated over 3,000 lbs of pet food to support their cause.
These gals mean business when it comes rescuing and finding living homes.

Amazing group. The dogs aren't kenneled. The place is clean and in order. They really care about where the dogs go and set them up for success. They are name #2 on the microchip, in case the owners number changes. We've adopted 3 dogs from them & we E joy volunteering.

I have so much to be grateful to OKSAD for. Their staff have enormous hearts full of kindness and compassion. They helped my son find happiness whilst visiting Oklahoma from the UK for cancer treatment and did everything possible to make come true his wish of bringing one of their dogs home with us. Tips the Boston cross is a joy and only here with us because of Kim and her dedicated staff. They are truly amazing people.

We adopted our dear Bear, a wonderful German Shepherd, from Kim years and years ago when OKSAD was in their infancy. Then later we adopted Eddie, our sweet Jack Russell. Both have been wonderful dogs. I have seen a lot of rescues come and go, but OKSAD has been steadfast in their passion and dedication to improving the lives of the abandoned dogs in the area. They have taken what little money they get from donations to improve their facilities and have expanded their abilities but have never profited from it. I truly admire them for doing such difficult work with love and grace.
