When I was checking around years ago for a dog, I knew I wanted to go through a local rescue shelter. OK Save A Dog was so wonderful to work with and I couldn't ask for a better furry companion! I now follow them on Facebook, and from everything I read, OKSAD still exceeds expectations. They go above and beyond to rescue animals in need and inform the public of upcoming adoption events, fundraising events, etc. The next time I'm looking for a new furry addition to my family, I will definitely return to OK Save A Dog.

We adopted a pet a few years ago and had a wonderful experience with OKSAD. This is definitely the best pet adoption facility in Oklahoma and probably among the other surrounding states as well. The owners take exceptional care of every pet they take in as if they were their own and pets are very well groomed and already spayed/neutered and vaccinated. There is no better way to adopt a pet than from OKSAD. We will definitely adopt all of our pets from now on from them.

In 2008 we lost one of our little dogs, a friend at work pointed me to a listing on Pet Finders of a litter of PomChis. I looked at the listing and realized they were about an hour drive from us, so I applied on line to adopt one of the puppies and once approved, we drove out to OK Save a Dog and met Kim. The dogs were all so well cared for and it was obvious they were happy and loved there. Of course the one we were interested in was one of four from the litter and Kim told us another couple was driving up from Texas to take one of the males, but we could have our pick of the males. Well call us crazy, but we ended up adopting one of the males and both the females that day and have since adopted two more from Kim. I love her dedication to the animals. Some people complain about rescues having adoption applications, etc. I say great, if you can't be bothered to fill out an application to get a new member of your family, then you probably won't be bothered to care for them. Kim and Sunshine are wonderful and the work they do is admirable. Keep saving them Kim and Sunshine and I will keep doing all I can to help!

In 2008 I started online searching to adopt a rescue dog. I came across OK Save A Dog and read a great newspaper article on Kim & her rescue. She approved my application, I asked her to chose the dog & she recommended a GSD mix, a little older, a little overweight that so many others had overlooked. Her words "He's the best dog on this place"... and he was! I continue to support OK Save A Dog through United Way contributions, donated items and referring friends to her for adoption. A coworker of mine has also adopted here, and another is considering. I will myself adopt again from OK Save a Dog. Her dogs are happy, socialized and healthy!

I adopted a pet from OK Dog and it was a great experience. I appreciate all the effort that they put into finding homes for these dogs and not just "homes" they actually make sure that it will be a good home and if they dont think it will be then they dont let you adopt. The animals are all ready with shots, spade and neutered before you get them and i had never adopted a pet before but i highly would recomment it to other people. Everyone wants a puppy but i got Bella ...aka pepper and she was 9 months old and was saved by Ok dog and she was very thin when i got her but our family loves her and she loves us unconditionally! Thank you

I am a 'client served' having adopted a dog from OKSAD.
I am a 'volunteer', having fostered dogs from OKSAD.
And I am 'experienced in the field', very experienced (20 years).

OKSAD is without a doubt the most professional and dedicated rescue that I have ever run across in over 20 years of being involved in dog rescue. Right there in the middle of small town Oklahoma is a Wonder. A person who has done this on her own for over 10 years resulting in the rescue and placement of over 6,000 dogs! Six thousand dogs! It's hard work rescuing just one dog. It must be evaluated, vetted, bathed, photographed, advertised and most of all loved. I applaud anyone that's rescued even one dog, but thousands of dogs - it's unheard of. It just doesn't happen.
Bravo and a standing ovation for Kim and OK Save A Dog in Prague OK ! ! ! ! ! Thank you so much for your dedication to saving unwanted and in need dogs for over 10 years now!!! The dogs would say Thank You themselves if they could type.

Thank God for OK Save a Dog. They are a blessing to all the mistreated and abused dogs. They do such a wonderful job finding forever homes for the dogs that they rescue. They are truly compassionate and caring people that restore a dog's faith in man. Keep up the great work. I love you guys.

I adopted a pet from OK Save a Dog rescue in recent months. I am pleased and amazed at what they do there! Not only do they rescue animals from all kinds of bad situations, they see that they get whatever care they need when they get there (including vetting), they are kept in the best of conditions possible, and are certainly non-profit - I don't see how they do it! And, when it comes to adoption, they are very cautious in seeing that the dog is placed in a good, loving, forever home with the proper environment conducive to a life-long happy relationship for both the pet and the pet's new family (human and otherwise). In my books, they are just the BEST all the way around!

The work done by this rescue group is heart warming. I've read story after story about the dogs they've saved. I love the updates on the dogs who found new hames and families through them

I have see the storys from some of the dogs these amazing people take in and they are truly awful. These guys take in dogs(an a few other critters) from horrible situations and turn them into wonderful loving pets worthy of great homes. They do this out of the goodness and love in their hearts and ask nothing in return for themselves except the continuing goodwill of man towards our furry companions....Kim and Sunny are truly exceptional people and should be comended for their actions to the fullest extent.

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.

Kim and the staff at OK Save A Dog have the biggest hearts for animals than anyone I know. Last summer I was on the hunt for a new friend and luckily ran across an ad for a beautiful male PBGV. When I got to OK Save A Dog, I was warmly greeted by Sunshine and shortly thereafter by Kim. It was/is evident beyond a doubt that these ladies truly care and love for their animals in their care. I continue to keep in touch with Kim to this day and I tell everyone who'll listen to me that the best place to adopt is OK Save A Dog. I love Kim's policy of not adopting out until spaying or neutering and the vet care the animals receive in her care seems excellent. Thank you, OK Save A Dog for everything you 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.

OK Save a Dog does great work. Many innocent animal lives have been saved. Great care of these animals is taken, they receive veterinary care and are spayed and neutered before they are adopted to loving people who will cherish them the rest of their years.

Kim and all the OK Save A Dog volunteers do a wonderful job at saving countless lives of animals by taking them in regardless of the challenges and finding them loving homes. Lots of rescues rehome shelter dogs but OK Save A Dog takes the time to find them loving homes that are the right fit for the animal and the adopters.

OkSaveADog is a wonderful rescue. These ladies love and care for so many dogs each year. Each dog is vetted and spayed/neutered upon arrival. Their rescue isn't like any I've ever seen. The dogs have comfortable living, are very well taken care of, happy and healthy. These ladies are angels. Love all they do!

I've known Ok Save A Dog for several years. The first time I met Kim was when she helped a beautiful red golden that I found wandering, half starved and filthy. Within a month, this girl was cleaned up, fully vetted and in a new home.

They work tirelessly saving and finding good homes for the dogs at the rescue. Being outside the metro means travel is a big part of their adoption process but each week, sometimes several times a week, they journey to the city to adoption events and to rescue dogs in need.

Kim is incredible. Her heart is truly with the dogs she saves. No matter what, she will not allow a dog to go to a home she does not feel is best. Even if it takes a little longer to find a good home and that costs her that much more. She knows the animal will not be in a good place and could end up back in a shelter.

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.
