This organization is fantastic! We adopted a pup (Toby/now Buddy) from them in April when he was about 8-9 weeks old. He came to us healthy and well-taken care of, as well as chipped and neutered. I know he was in excellent health because I took him to my vet, immediately (just a habit of mine). I already had 3 cats and 2 dogs so I did not HAVE to get another! I CHOSE to get Buddy from OKSAD because of it's great reputation (multiple family members have adopted from them). The length of the form and the scrutiny of the questions made me nervous about "passing muster"; however, I took no offense because they want their dogs to be well-taken care of and well-loved for the rest of their lives!! Thankfully, OKSAD gave us custody of this vibrant, bright-eyed sweetheart and he has changed the lives of my husband and me!! Rest assured, my future dogs will all come from this wonderful organization I KNOW I can trust! I have no doubt every dollar raised is used for the rescue and care of these precious souls--I wish I had a million dollars to give them!
Thank you for all the help and emotional support you gave my family whilst they were in Oklahoma receiving treatment for cancer . The dog that they chose and you organised (with great effort on your part) to be flown to the UK has proven to be a wonderful addition to the family.
My family has adopted 3 dogs from OKSaveaDog. They do amazing work and save so many animals' lives. They are essential to helping the animal community and deserve all the help and recognition they can get!
I was looking for a puppy on petfinder and found a precious female sable dog with Ok Save a dog. My mother and I drove to Oklahoma to get her. Once we got there and Kim brought her out, although she was beautiful it was not a good fit. Kim brought her sister out. She came out barking and playful...I knew she was the one! She is now 7 years old, weighs 130lbs and is my best feiend. Ok Save a dog does wonderful, caring work for these babies.
My family and I have volunteered for events, picked up dogs for Kim and Sunshine, adopted out many and many of dogs, donated and seen how much efforts this rescue puts in day in and day out. Currently, my mother has 3 oksad dogs, my oldest sister has two, my other sister has 1, both of my brothers each have 2 oksad dogs, and my grandparents have 2, and my aunt has 1, and I am about to foster one myself. Each of these dogs have been such large parts of our family, and we love them dearly, along with this rescue group. We continually follow up with this group, and love hearing stories of other families who have also adopted from them.
Ok Save a Dog has some of the biggest hearts out there. They save as many animals as they can, nurse and love them until they can find amazing, loving homes. Their efforts are heartwarming and my next dog will be a rescue from them.
Awesome organization. We adopted a puppy that I wouldn't want to do life without her. She provides so much joy and OK Save A Dog was great to work with!
Wonderful work by some amazing people. We are grateful to them for matching us with our precious Maggie.
I have been donating to OK Save A Dog for some time. Not only do they pull dogs from shelters but being in a rural setting, they take in the dogs that are dumped in the country. To see the transition of the dogs that are taken in is amazing. The time and dedication of all involved to foster and attend adoption events might seem overwhelming to some but the OK Save A Dog team does it consistently and constantly. They really go the extra mile.
I have been volunteering with OK Save A Dog for over 10 yrs now! They are the real deal! They fully vet every dog, let the dogs be dogs... they aren't penned up 24/7 but are able to run and play all day! Each potential adopter is screened thoroughly because they truly care about the animals. It's about quality not quantity! Their lives are dedicated to these animals and I am blessed to be a part of this. Incredible rescue!
OK Save A Dog is the B.E.S.T.!!!!! Not only are they non-kill and place dogs in loving fur-ever homes, they make sure that the dogs are placed in the RIGHT homes. They ensure that each applicant is screened thoroughly and placed in the correct environment. They fully vet each pooch that comes through their gates and dogs are....DOGS there.... they run free....aren't caged up 24/7. Nice open areas! WONDERFUL place..... should be called HAPPY ENDINGS!
Fantastic. This program strives to match animals to homes based on needs and personalities. They work tirelessly to educate people, too. They save countless lives and deserve a special place in heaven.
This organization saves so many dogs, it is amazing.. They really care a lot about their dogs going to good homes, go to great efforts to ensure that they do.. They always have so many precious dogs of all ages, there is no reason for anyone in central Oklahoma to look anywhere else to find their next best friend.. I got my little She-Ra there, and our family just LOVES her and we all think she is the most beautiful perfect dog in the world!
The real deal. When you donate, your money goes strictly to the dogs. No salaries and no fluff. I've not only adopted 3 dogs from them, I've visited there numerous times and the place is clean and very well kept. There are no cages. They are about saving lives, even lives of the not so perfect or not so adorable or those in need of big medical care. Oklahoma is very blessed to have them saving lives and educating adopters! They are always willing to take back any dog they've adopted out. ❤️
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.
This organization has saved numerous of little furry lives. It has taken in pets that were a left for worse. They have taken on the responsibility of fixing something that is broken in our world. Hands down a great group of people.
They help save so many lives, me and so many other Oklahomans are forever grateful to them.
I adopted Piper from OK save a dog Society back in 2015. They had found the momma and her 5 pups in a hoarder home. When I met Piper she was in a foster home with her brother woody. It was love at first sight.
About a year later I got a message from Pipers foster saying that Izzy, Pipers sister had been returned to the rescue because her owner went off to college and didn't want her. I immediately jumped in the car, made the hour drive to the rescue and met Pipers sister, Izzy. I got to meet Kim, the head honcho of the rescue and she is such a caring and hard working lady! Best advice and customer service one could ask for.
An adoption fee and a signature later Izzy was packed in my car and on her way to her new home.
OK Save A Dog is such a wonderful organization that helps so many animals in need.. that with out them, they would die!
5 stars all the way around!
Ok Save A Dog is a wonderful organization with caring, dedicated workers who sacrifice so much in order to save as many animals as possible each year! I adopted my sweet JRT mix girl, Katie, 6 & 1/2 years ago from them. She has been a part of the family ever since and my house wouldn't be the same without her. The founders are selfless people who deserve all the support that can be given. Everything they receive is used for the excellent care of the dogs! They work tirelessly to ensure every dog has a loving forever home.
My boys and I adopted our dog from OK Save a Dog two years ago and it has been the best experience ever. Not only did we get a great dog but got great service. The owners are very caring and do not just adopt their babies to just anyone. They completely screen every applicant to make sure the animal will be taken care of. We would most definitely adopt from here again.
I adopted my dog, Zella, from OK Save a Dog in February of 2015 and I could see their passion for rescuing right off. I am so thankful they do what they do because I wouldn't have my sweet girl if it wasn't for them!
The best rescue around! We've adopted two dogs from them: Forge and Beeker. They take the time and money to make sure the dogs and family find a perfect fit.
Fantastic work by wonderful people making a difference for hundreds of dogs and people every year.
Our Bailey came from OK Save a Dog. These ladies are just the best. What a wonderful, caring rescue. Bailey was older, neglected, partially disabled, but they saved him and gave him a chance. He has totally blossomed into a wonderful companion.
I love this rescue. Our family adopted our standard poodle, Hamilton, from OKSave a Dog ten years ago. He is well loved by ourselves and our community. He recently rode on Chouteau Day float with the first and second graders. Without OKSave a Dog, we would have had quite a void in our lives.
We have added these 3 furry kids to our family. Each having their own story of feeling unwanted and then ok save a dog came along. They saved these 3 and allowed them to rescue us. We love them with all our hearts and wouldn't know what to do without them. This rescue and those who keep it going are amazing and deserve and support they can get.
I adopted my little Annie (known as Dot) from Ok Save A Dog. We'll forever be grateful to them for saving her and allowing us to adopt her. She makes my days brighter & is my constant companion. Thank you
Ok Save A Dog!
Our family adopted our spaniel/border collie mix, Maggie, from Oksaveadog 6 years ago. Maggie was just a puppy and this wonderful group rescued her and her siblings from a local kill shelter. I've personally witnessed how hard this group works to help ALL dogs regardless of age or condition. Their efforts are tireless and they do it all from local donations. My life was forever changed when I adopted my sweet girl Maggie. I can't imagine life without her. Thanks to Oksaveadog for all of the love that they show the rescue dogs. I attatched a picture of my beautiful girl.
I've adopted 3 perfect kids from Ok Save A Dog and I couldn't love them more if I tried. They do excellent work (angels) and they truly care about the lives they save and that are in their care.. they are my heroes..
My late wife and I adopted a minipin from OKSAD 8 years ago. We drove up from Sherman, TX to view a dog we found on Pet Finder. Kim is very impressive, completely devoted to rescuing and caring for dogs. Prospective adopters are screened to find the dogs proper forever-homes. Since that original experience I have made contributions in cash and in kind, and recently discovered a portion of Amazon purchases can be donated through Amazon Smile, which I put in place immediately. I highly commend Kim for her dedication, and will continue to contribute to OKSAD, and will adopt another dog in the future.
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.
They are amazing rescue and do great work. They is not a dog they won't help.
This rescue was my first experience with adopting from a rescue. I have adopted three other dogs since because of the positive experience I had with OK Save A Dog. They not only helped me add to my family but also educated me. I had no idea black dogs were harder to find homes for. Because of their education, I adopted a black baby from them and also have adopted two more black dogs. I adopted Jaxson from OK Save A Dog, and I call him my soul dog. I can't thank them enough for helping me make him a part of my family.
Love this rescue. They go out of their way to help all dogs regardless of how much help they need. They truly love and care for their dogs. I got one of my babies from them.
Excellent people who really do care about the animals they take care of. I couldn't be more pleased with the way they do things. They are a great service to the community.
This place is the real deal. I found my dog online and drove for three hours to get there and when I arrived I could not believe it. A true rescue with one concerted effort to save animals and rehome them in forever loving homes. These people work so hard to make sure that the animals are well cared for first and then placed in a good fit for both. I hope that you will award ok save a dog because it is a true rescue in every way.
My family and I adopted from OKSAD. This is what started our relationship with them. Now we volunteer to foster for them a few times a year. I have fostered for other organizations, but none come close to the level of care, expertise, and devotion that these ladies show toward the animals that they rescue. The animals always come first and they do everything in their power, then more, to save and care for them. They have devoted their lives to this mission. I am honored to foster for them.
We adopted our Abby from Kim at OK Save a Dog. They do such wonderful work on behalf of homeless dogs. We drove 4 hours from outside Dallas to pick up Abby, they care for and find homes for so many deserving dogs.
This rescue is what all others should strive to be. They are honest, caring and all about the dogs. I adopted my Abby from Kim 5 years ago and would not hesitate to go back again. The Dogs are treated as family and not kept in cages. They are loved and cared for as long as they are there. They handle the tough times with grace and always take in more when there is more need than space.
We adopted Demo (previously Jake & Socks) from OKSAD. He is a great member of our family and has 4 other fur siblings. Adopting and working with this group was great. They really care about their animals and where they will find their fur-ever homes!
We adopted our lab mix from this organization and I can't say enough amazing things about them! The women who run the rescue actually live on the same property of the animals so they're able to watch them closely and this is what they do day after day. They treat all of them like their own. The animals receive amazing care and I refer my friends to them when they're looking to adopt. They deserve to receive this opportunity so they can continue to rescue more animals!
I have gotten 3 of my furbabies from OK Save A Dog and they are a wonderful organization to work with. They truly care for their rescues and work with them to make them more adoptable. I have fostered for them as well and they have been very supportive if I needed assistance. They have a great staff and volunteers.
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.
What a great job this organization does. They are saving/rescuing so many dogs and puppies, including seniors that otherwise would not get a second chance. We got a dog from here in June to be my son's friend and companion, and already know that any future dogs will come from here. The dogs are already socialized with people and other dogs, and they know each dog's personality.
We absolutely love what these ladies are doing! Very knowledgeable about these pups and they have a great thing going. I love that they know so much about these dogs, and the dogs look like they are having a blast. They look very well taken care of and if you get the chance, definitely adopt from them!
This rescue is absolutely amazing! They take excellent care of each and every dog that is there. The dogs are fed high quality no grain dog food, they are on Heartworm prevention. Each dog is given attention and love, which is so important when dealing with these dogs , so many have been in just horrible situations! This rescue took in a momma dog and her two puppies that my husband found on the side of the road . The momma dog was street smart and weary of humans, they helped bring her out of her shell and now she has a home ! Her two puppies also found a wonderful home together!
Molly stole our hearts three years ago, when we stumbled upon an adoption event and saw a tiny slip of a dog curled up in the back of her crate. She came home that day and soon discovered the joy of couches, beds, scritches, and regular meals. Little Molly-dog had been a hoarder rescue and it was immediately obvious that she had a very special place in OK Save A Dog's hearts as well. Molly (or Storm, as she was known at OKSAD) is still a little slip of a thing who, after spending the first two years in a cage, will lay down in the grass in the backyard and simply look at the world around her.
OKSAD does some good work and I, for one, am eternally grateful that they were on hand to rescue Molly and willing to let her come home with me. I can't imagine life without Molly. Thank you, OKSAD!
Adopted a dachshund from Sunshine several years ago who is one of our spoiled furbabies. They are the best & have such a love for the animals. When ready to adopt again will definitely go back to this special group.
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.
This rescue goes above and beyond to save animals. They are tireless in their work to save lives and find loving homes for all their dogs.
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.
I have worked indirectly with OKSAD for years and have been so impressed with they amount of work they do for abandoned and rescued dogs on so little money. They have a great skill set for saving and working with the dogs, they provide an excellent place for them and they work tirelessly to get them adopted to good forever homes. They have taken in animals from hoarders and such many times to help out the community and of course, the dogs. In my opinion, they are the absolute best dog rescue in our area, perhaps the state of Oklahoma. They are not publicity hounds but instead work around the clock doing work that most of us couldn't do. They have committed their lives to helping those that can't help themselves.
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.
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 from OKSAD 6 years ago. Since then I have fostered a few, and volunteer when I am able, at their adoption events. They are super hard working ladies and Sunshine practcally risks her life once in awhile, to rescue! Amazing people! I am constantly in awe! GOd bless them, they are constantly saving!!! 6 Stars in a 5 star review!
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!
ALL THE ANIMALS THAT ARE RESCUED ARE LOVED, KEPT IN LARGE OPEN FIELDS NOT IN CAGES, THE ADOPTERS ARE REALLY LOOKED INTO, IF THEY DO NOT LOOK RIGHT THEY WILL NOT GET A DOG,THEY WANT THE DOGS TO SETTLE INTO NEW HOMES FOREVER. THEY HATE TO GET RETURNS AS IT UPSETS THE DOGS. EVERYTHING THEY DO IS FOR THE DOGS WELFARE.
DONATIONS ARE A MUST TO KEEP THIS RESCUE OPEN, WHO CAN AFFORD TO FEED 100 DOGS WITHOUT DONATIONS? BEST RESCUE IN OKLAHOMA. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK KIM AND SUNSHINE.
they only save the dogs they can profit from. horrible organization. scam people for money and act as though they don't pay themselves.
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've adopted 3 pugs from OK Save A Dog and I can say that these people are by far the most caring, compassionate and selfless dog rescuers I've ever known. They are never off-duty and everything they do is for and about the dogs (and whatever else happens to land in the rescue). I feel lucky to have found them and include them as part of my life.
OK SAVE A DOG is very compassionate and takes on some very tough behavioral and medical cases. Our shy Kaya came from them! Kim and Sunshine are the best at what they do.
I've known them for many years and they always find room to rescue dogs. They take wonderful care of them and are very particular when rehoming them making sure to find the best homes for the furbabies.
Great people doing great things. They have taught me so much with patience.
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.
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.
