I can not thank Oklahoma Save a Dog Society enough for the great work they do every single day! We adopted our little Angus from them a year ago in Sept., and he been such a wonderful addition to our family! They do such a good job of screening applicants and making every single dime they receive stretch farther than it should be possible!

OK Save A Dog is an amazing rescue! I got my Benz (Darwin) from them back in Dec 2012 and he has been an absolute blessing! This place truly cares about where they place their dogs and about getting the consumer the best dog for their situation. The dogs are obviously loved until they find their forever homes or they are free to live out their days with them in a caring environment! LOVE this rescue!

I have adopted two dogs from OKSAD and both times I visited the actual rescue. Her dogs are not kept in cages, they have fenced yards and shelter. She has different yards for different sizes of dogs, and the small dogs even have access to her home via a doggy door. She loves each one as her own and has a vested interest in successful adoptions. You may apply for one pup, and she might suggest another based on information on your application. Sure she has cute little puppies, but she also has taken on dogs from hoarder situations, starving abandoned dogs, and even handicapped dogs. She is OCD on cleanliness. She is what every rescue group should aspire to be. God bless the OK Save A Dog rescue and many thanks for all of the lives they have saved and all of the happy homes they have approved!

As an animal advocate, I have great respect for this rescue. They go above and beyond to provide a safe haven for those In their care. They provide a wonderful environment for the animals and have strict adoption requirements. All the dogs receive great medical care..all are spayed/neutered prior to being made available for adoption. Medical care, regardless of what the need might be, is provided. They do not have any paid staff..Kim and Sunshine work tirelessly and depend on their faithful volunteers and donors. They deserve to have a five star rating without question.

I so respect the work that is done saving pets at Ok Save a Dog. I am a proud supporter of what they do. It is my favorite charity and help them as much as I can.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Observing the way they care for and love the ones they save. I know they have a screening process before they allow a pet to be adopted.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I don't know of any changes I could recommend. They probably could use more hours in each day and more funds to provide for the ones in their care. I live in another part of the state, so I help support them financially as much as I can.

I have been blessed by the schnauzer that I adopted from OK Save a Dog in 2011. Sassy is the best dog ever! She wants to please and is such a happy dog. She loves both stomach and belly rubs as well as saying hi to everyone when we take walks. Since her adoption, I have been volunteering and have witnessed the awesome dedication of Kim and Sun. They are truly awesome!

We adopted our fur-daughter from OKSAD back in 2011, they were amazing!!!! Every question we had, they answered, from adoption process, to after care. We still send updates (they were my Layla's "first" family. Many friends have adopted from here as well. They give their love, money, and endless hours. Absolutely the best around!!!!!

My, then seven year old,son had asked Santa for a puppy for Christmas so he could be his best friend. Our family dog had died the summer before and we missed her so much, we felt like our family was not complete without a four legged family member. I had been looking for a rescued dog online for months and always ended up back at OK Save A Dog's site. Their dogs were always happy and healthy looking after they had a chance to care for them and let them come to know they were safe and loved. I balked at the strict application rules a bit a first but, when we had looked all over town at shelters and other rescue places, I realized they were the best-they were there for the dogs welfare and only had their best interests in mind. That is the way it should be. When we drove out to see them after our application had been accepted, I was astonished at the cleanliness and well appointed facilities they maintained for the dogs. Dogs of all sizes and shapes were playing and wagging there tails, not cooped up in crates or small pens. It was very impressive and you could tell that they lived for these little guys. They made sure that we understood our responsibility, helped make sure that we were matched with the right pet for us, and we left with a healthy, happy, neutered and vet vaccinated and checked pup. He has been a perfect fit for us and the following year we adopted another one, this time an older girl who they saved the day before she was to be put down at the shelter. She gave birth to healthy puppies the next day! They had a foster care for them until they were weaned and old enough to be with there own new families and she is a happy spoiled little girl now, we all couldn't be happier. I strongly recommend OK Save A Dog, their knowledge, care, and dedication is outstanding. I have often heard of these folks referred to as angels, I think that might be right.
