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

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!

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.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

Kim and Sunshine truly treat each individual animal coming across them as a family member. No matter how short the stay a particular animal is there it will have a name and id (rabies). I have watched countless animals turned over to them, seen them cared for, recouped and adopted into loving families. I have been with Sunshine as she worked 24 hrs straight at an adoption event and she never failed to amaze me. I look up to these women and only wish I could help them more.

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

Adoption events

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

Give them more staff and money to do more of what they do.

I have known Kim and Ok save a Dog Rescue since 2004. I adopted my 2 dogs from there. Thats when I seen how wonderful she was and what good things her Rescue was doing. I volunteer for them and foster pups for her. Kim not only saves these animals from death but she loves them. They are not just numbers to her. She has many many sleepless night taking care og the ill ones and bottle feeding the orphan pups. She don't just take em to the vet , she has to do all the work herself. She get NO funding at all! She depends on private donors. None of the sdoption fee nor donations even come close to covering the expenses of the animals in need. There is no other rescue I would recommend in helping at this point than Ok Save a dog in Prague oklahoma. The animals are loved dearly and no matter what has a home there at the rescue no matter how long it takes for them to find their forever home.

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

volunteering and fostering for them. Also I have adopted my pets from them.

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

Get her funding so that she could save even more animals in need.

Kim works very hard to save many (600 yr) dogs from kill shelters and pounds, she keeps them all in comfort while spaying and neutering 100% before adoption. These dogs are loved and well cared for they are happy and content.
Kim works for no wages, 365 days a yr no donations are used for wages 100% goes to caring for the dogs.
Your money goes to saving lives here no wages, no fancy buildings to support.

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

many ways I see the dogs on arrival and what they look like when adopted....

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

See them have a large dog building to hold the dogs rather than her home.
