Please be aware that in order to adopt an animal you must:
1. Be at least 18 years of age.
2. Have valid identification with your current address.
3. Be able to verify that you can have a pet where you live.
4. Bring along any resident dogs or children for an introduction to a new dog.
5. Please bring a copy of current vaccines for any animals you already own.
6. Understand that Animal Aid reserves the right to deny any adoption for any reason.
First - Fill out the Pre-Adoption Application. Be prepared to answer questions about where the pet will sleep, the name of your landlord if you rent and the name of your vet if you have one. This form is a final check to make sure that you and your future beloved pet will get along once you both go home. Once complete, we may have some follow-up questions for you.
Second - Some of our animals need to stay with us a day or two to be spay/neutered.

Can you hold an animal for me?
We do not hold animals or take payment over the phone to reserve animals. We adopt strictly on a first come, first serve basis.
Why won’t you hold an animal for me?
Animal Aid has decided not to put animals on hold based on past experience. An overwhelming number of the animals that were put on hold by potential adopters were never adopted. Also, potential adopters must be present to fill out an application before we can approve an adoption. If you are interested in any of the animals you see , but need more time to think or prepare, you can note the Animal Aid case number and clinic if applicable. However, there is no guarantee the choice you have made will still be available.
Can I decide not to have my animal fixed?
No. Any animal that is released from an animal rescue group or shelter must be spayed or neutered under Oklahoma law.
