To the people who adopted Poppy - I want you to know that Poppy was very loved and is missed terribly! I cry daily over what we had to do. You need to know also that Kim is a hateful woman, and she lies. She had in Poppy’s profile that “she had no idea why Poppy was returned” She knew good and well!! We did NOT want to return Poppy - my heart is broken and I miss her terribly! But she attacked our 5 lb Yorkie and put a gash on her head requiring staples from ear to ear. The Yorkie will be ok, but EVERYONE, including our vet, said it was a bad idea to try to keep Poppy now. (We’ve had Yorkie 9 years, Poppy almost 4 years) They said the risk of finding Yorkie dead sometime was too high. Poppy and I had a great connection and I feel like I lost part of me. I was trying to find a home for Poppy myself and Kim wrote me the most hateful, hurtful email! TO ANYONE WHO ADOPTS FROM THIS WOMAN - FIRST THING TO DO - have your dog rechipped to you! SECOND, If you ever find yourself in our position - DO NOT RETURN YOUR PET TO HER! Do whatever you can to find your dog a home! Kim will make you feel like dirt! She should not be in this business, she has sub-zero people skills. I wish all her dogs would be adopted out and she’d be put out of business!

This is beyond a rescue for dogs, they rescue every pet parent as well. They match you with a dog they feel is right for your family. I can't rave enough about the two babies I have from them. Were completely in love, and great full for this rescue.

I have adopted two Great Danes through OK Save a Dog. I went out to their facility and was incredibly impressed by how calm all the animals were. None of the frenetic fear that you see at a shelter. Huge pens for the dogs, separated, and with shelter from the weather. It was like going to someone's house who happened to have a LOT of dogs, rather than a rescue facility.

I cannot praise Kim and Sunshine enough for their hard work and dedication to the animals they rescue!

I've adopted 3 pugs from OK Save A Dog and I can say that these people are by far the most caring, compassionate and selfless dog rescuers I've ever known. They are never off-duty and everything they do is for and about the dogs (and whatever else happens to land in the rescue). I feel lucky to have found them and include them as part of my life.

I have adopted 2 dogs from OK Save A DOG and they are wonderful pets. Tracy is now 9 and mcQueen is 7. Both dogs were healthy, fixed, and well mannered when I got them. They go to great lengths to help not only the animals, they also provide as much information as they can to assist you with your new best friend....

OK SAVE A DOG is very compassionate and takes on some very tough behavioral and medical cases. Our shy Kaya came from them! Kim and Sunshine are the best at what they do.

I've known them for many years and they always find room to rescue dogs. They take wonderful care of them and are very particular when rehoming them making sure to find the best homes for the furbabies.

I love OK Save A Dog and would never adopt from anywhere else. These two dedicated individuals don't just rescue and re-home, they are truly dedicated to this cause. They will not allow their rescued pups to go to any home, it must be the right home. Their primary goal saving as many hopeless and condemned dogs as they can and finding them the best forever home available. They will never allow an intact pet to leave their kennels, thereby alleviating the need for anymore abandoned, unwanted dogs. After adoption they are available to answer questions, provide advice, educate and they alway love reports from the adopters about how the new family member is doing. A great organization, with dedicated, knowledgeable people who really care about their wards and the people who adopt them. Do yourself a favor if you want to adopt look to OK Save A Dog first.
