Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: The primary goal of the central oklahoma humane society is to end the needless euthanasia of adoptable pets in oklahoma city. Through its partnership with the oklahoma city animal shelter, the organization is able to transfer dogs and cats at risk of euthanasia into its adoption and relocation programs. Through its spay and neuter program, the organization prevents the birth of unwanted pets and helps reduce intake at the oklahoma city animal shelter. Humane education programs promote compassion toward animals and teach responsible pet ownership.

Programs: In 2017, almost 18,000 dogs and cats were received at the oklahoma city animal shelter and approximately 26% were euthanized. To save animals at risk of euthanasia, central oklahoma humane society transfers them into its adoption and relocation programs.

in an effort to reduce the birth of unwanted pets and intake at the oklahoma city animal shelter, central oklahoma humane society has a high volume, low cost spay and neuter clinic that performs surgeries on pets placed through the adoption program, publicly owned pets and freeroaming cats. In 2017, the clinic performed 14,835 spay or neuter surgeries and offered low cost vaccination services, microchipping and other wellness services. Our in-house clinic services animals needing additional medical attention.

the intake program is responsible for processing the initial intake of all dogs and cats entering the adoption and relocation programs. This includes medical and behavioral evaluation and any required medical processes such as vaccination, heartworm testing, flea/tick treatment and microchipping. In 2017, the intake program was responsible for processing 5,200 dogs and cats.

This is an organization close to my heart. I have worked here, volunteered, and adopted. There is so much compassion for animals. The Central OK Humane Staff and volunteers are not only doing an amazing thing by saving thousands of animals and placing them in forever homes, but also by serving and educating the community.

I am an active canine foster parent, therefore, I have considerable interaction with the administration and the working staff at the Humane Society. I have been impressed and pleased that the staff treats these scared little guys and gals with respect and love. I could not be happier with what I have seen. I support them as a volunteer, and also with my monetary charitable contributions each year. That speaks volumes as there are a lot of charities out there to pick from, but I choose to support our Central OK Humane Society. Please consider donating to help them save more lives of those who have no choice and no voice. (I have also adopted one of my fosters).-Lisa

Adopted my dog Cosmo from Central Oklahoma Humane Society. All positive experiences! He had been returned by his previous family (as OK Humane is always willing to take back into their program animals adopted through them). I had the opportunity to foster him. After fostering 8 other dogs, he was the one I couldn't let go. The best part, he began my foster helper. I have continued to foster for other animals to get the chance to enter the program and find their forever home. Cosmo has made it his job to help the fosters learn how to be a dog! He helps me with socialization, appropriate behavior, etc. He couldn't have been a better fit for my home! Thankful for OK Humane and the work they do for our community, but most importantly, thankful they gave Cosmo his 3rd chance at a forever home where he found me.

Pets are well taken care of here. Dogs are kept in a clean environment and given plenty of water and food. Cats have their own rooms and space to play and eat. The pets are potty trained to some degree.

I have fostered several dogs via the Central OK Humane Society and have had a wonderful experience each time with both the dogs I've adopted and the staff at the Humane Society. Whenever I've had a question or concern, they have been quick to assist, and I never feel like I'm bothering anyone with my questions.

I have been volunteering for OK humane for about a year now and am amazed at how simple it is to be a volunteer and how fun it has been to get involved.

Our last three dogs have come from OHS and they have been wonderful! My sister also adopted her last two dogs from OHS and her family is very happy as well.

I've been fostering for Central Oklahoma Humane Society for many years now. And been involved in the TNR, Trap Neuter Return program, with feral cats in the neighborhood through the Spay/Neuter clinic.
They are great to work with, and are doing an awesome job finding homes for so many pets in Central Oklahoma and working to keep the pet population down through low-cost spaying/neutering.
Proud to work with them.
Here are just a few of the cute dogs they've saved.
