Kim and sunshine put their heart and soul into saving animals!

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.

This rescue group is one of the most passionate & selfless of its kind. We have rescued 5 dogs total from them (so far) If OKSAD had not stepped in, who knows what would have happened to our now four legged family members. I have been a volunteer and these people don't get the recognition they deserve.

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.

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.

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 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!

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.

Sunshine wants the best for every dog. She looks out for them like a family. I loved working with her when I volunteered and I know I am going to do it again. Thank you Sunshine and OK SAVE A DOG!

I have worked with OKSAD on and off since 2006. I have done transport and fostering for them. They are always ready and willing to back me up with any extra care the animal needs. They keep their rescue clean and presentable. Never smelly. They keep the dogs well cared for. I have worked with other rescues and this is by far my favorite! I never feel like my time is abused or wasted with this group.

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.

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.

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.
