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!

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. ❤️

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!

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.

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.

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.
