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.

Every dog I've ever lived with has been from OK Save a Dog. They are professional, passionate and so knowledgeable. When it comes to finding homes for dogs they don't worry about how many dogs they can find homes for, they worry about the quality of the home, how the dog will affect the home and how the home will affect the dog. OK Save a Dog is what I wish all animal shelters were, it's not about the bottom line for them it's about saving animals, and in that regard they are the best.

I adopted my GSD Blossom from this rescue. Could not ask for a better rescue. For them it's all about the animals.

Great charity with great dogs. I have fostered for them and adopted two. They are loving, caring people. The dogs are all healthy when available for adoption with shots, de-wormed, heart worm checked and have microchips.

I have had Tracy for over 8 yrs. My daughter adopted McQueen about 7 yrs ago and through a move I have him. Both dogs were vet cared for and fixed before they ever left OK Save A Dog. I have called several times to find out a bit more information about Tracy and they were always very polite and helpful. The facility is clean and all of the animals are well cared for and happy. In the future I plan to adopt from them again, Great Place, Great People, Great Dogs.

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....

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!
