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.

I adopted a schnauzer, Sassy in 2011. She was rescued in Shawnee, almost going to the gas chamber. She has been the best dog ever. She wants to please and makes an excellent watch dog.

Because of the wonderful adoption process of adopting Sassy, I began volunteering at the events. I quickly became aware of the time and money the organization spends on each rescued dog before a dog is ready for adoption. I truly enjoy the opportunity of volunteering at the adoption events. Seeing a happy dog go to a happy family is definitely priceless.

We adopted Elly here 4 years ago. These girls are tireless, rescuing so many dogs, shelters, puppy mills, hoarders, abusers, you name it! When I can, I foster now and then, and when I can, volunteer at adoption events for them. They try very hard to place all their dogs in the best loving homes!

We adopted our Elly from Ok Save a Dog last year. We were so impressed with the way the dogs were socialized, cared for and they all looked happy and healthy. Kim and Sunshine go out of their way to rescue from kill shelters and abuse situations. I enjoy fostering and volunteering at events when I can. I love these ladies and the love they have for the animals.

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

fostering and volunteering

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

they are perfect

A few months after losing my dog of 15 years I just felt called to go to a adoption event that included many rescues. I tucked my old dogs picture into my shirt on my heart and knew she would guide me and guide she did.
I found Ok Save a Dog and my sweet Nana there waiting to be adopted. I knew right away she was the one.
Since that day Ok Save a Dog has become like family.
Nana is here sleeping peacefully on her bed and so are the other 3 I've ended up bringing home.
I love Ok Save a Dog, the people who work tirelessly for them and I especially love my dogs.

Sunshine wants the best for every dog. She looks out for them like a family. I loved working with her when I volunteered and I know I am going to do it again. Thank you Sunshine and OK SAVE A DOG!

This is one of the greatest rescue groups I know. I have gotten 3 of my last dogs from them and they are always working to help save dogs from shelters, bad breeders, hoarders and abuse situations. These dogs are always taken care of no matter the problems or difficulties involved. They try and find the best home for the people adopting as well as the pet being adopted. Wonderful crew.

I have adopted and fostered for this wonderful organization. They save so many poor animals from shelters, puppy mills and individuals, furnish them with a big yard to play and run free in, good food, vet care and love to make them sociable, wonderful pets anyone would love.
This group also has some pets they maintain in this same fashion, that for one reason or another are not adoptable, saving them to live out full and wonderful lives.
In my heart -
I thank them daily for my sweet rescue Gracie.

I have worked with OKSAD on and off since 2006. I have done transport and fostering for them. They are always ready and willing to back me up with any extra care the animal needs. They keep their rescue clean and presentable. Never smelly. They keep the dogs well cared for. I have worked with other rescues and this is by far my favorite! I never feel like my time is abused or wasted with this group.
