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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

We have adopted 3 dogs from OKSAD. They take the best care of their dogs and really get to know their personalities so they can make the best matches. The dogs are socialized and friendly, they don't crate their dogs but let them run and play. You can find all breeds and ages at OKSAD, they don't discriminate but save as many dogs as they can. We will always adopt from OKSAD.

I have followed this rescue for several years now. I'm amazed at how much they are able to accomplish. They give 110% day in and day out. They work with a shoestring budget but yet are able to provide these animals so much. They truly have the animals best interest at heart. They sacrifice so much in their own lives to provide for these animals with a second chance. Truly great rescue.

Ok Save A Dog does outstanding job, everyday they are working extremely hard on rescuing animals that they get from gas chamber pounds, among other pounds,also finding abandoned dogs, Ok Save has always been the most honest, helpful people that I have ever found that are a rescue source for dogs. They tirelessly work 24|7 every day . They help me I am handicapped, and they showed me the dogs that would be suited for my needs, along with the dogs needs. Honestly there are few rescues in OKC that are good, but OK Save cannot be beat, they are awesome.

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.
