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 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.

The people behind OK Save A Dog are wonderful, selfless, giving, dedicated individuals. They are a rescue 24/7. They do all that they can, and most times more than they can for the dogs they save. The dogs are loved and well cared for in a beautiful location where they can be dogs. They are trained and only allowed to be adopted to approved homes. I adopted a precious dog from them in 2010 and she has been the perfect addition to our family. OK Save A Dog is one of the Best!

My husband and I adopted our dog, Cooper, from OKSAD in 2010 and we will never get a dog from anyplace else. This organization works harder than rescues three times their size! They rescue so many dogs from the most horrible conditions and turn them into loving family pets. I can not say enough nice things about Kim and her rescue.

My late wife and I adopted our fur-kid from here in 2008 and couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. Kim has prospective adopters checked out in advance to make sure her rescue dogs are going to responsible homes. All our questions were fully answered, and an appointment set to come meet our dog. We adopted Rose (now Skoshi), a little red MiniPin that had been dumped with her puppy at a dog pound. I am so glad we adopted this little girl-dog from OK Save A Dog. All the rescues are vetted and neutered, ready to become furry companions. By the way, we traveled from Sherman, TX to Prague to adopt our pet, based on the recommendation of friends in the Tulsa area and I am glad we did.

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!
