Interested in Adopting a Pet?

Adoption Process

We have an on-site adoption application and interview process. If you visit our Adoption Center and fall in love with a dog or cat, our adoption specialists will provide you with a written questionnaire and ask follow-up questions to determine if your home would be a good fit for your pet of interest. If deemed a good fit, you can complete adoption paperwork and take your new family member home immediately! OK Humane does reserve the right to decline an adoption application if a potential adopter’s home environment/lifestyle is deemed a poor fit for the animal of interest. Our Adoption Center staff is committed to finding the best match for you as well as the animals in our care. You can complete the adoption application online using the button found on this page.

How to Adopt Animals at OKHS

How to adopt an animal at OK Humane

  1. Browse available animals online.
  2. Come in and get to know the animal. Play with them, take them for a quick walk, or just sit with them.
  3. Talk to your Adoption Counselor about the animal – their personality, history, what to expect, etc.
  4. Once you’ve decided to proceed with adoption, you’ll fill out the paperwork onsite and go home that day!
  5. Enjoy your lifetime of unconditional love.

You can also complete the adoption application online by using the button below. Please note that you will still be required to meet the cat or dog you’re interested in adopting in-person, and be counseled by OK Humane staff on the specific animal’s temperament and needs prior to adoption.


Adoption Fees
(Effective 1-1-2024)

  • Adult dogs: $150
  • Puppies: $250
  • Adult cats: $80
  • Kittens: $105
  • High Profile Pets: Variable Adoption Fee – see description below.

* If the adopter brings their own carrier or purchases one at the time of adoption, they will receive a $5 discount off the adoption fee.

All of our pets are microchipped, spayed or neutered, treated with all age-appropriate vaccinations and flea, tick, and heartworm preventative prior to being cleared for adoption, so we put a lot of effort and monetary investment into each of our animals including a two-week quarantine period in a foster home. These adoption fees help cover the costs of our animals’ health and well-being!

High-Profile Pets & Variable Adoption Fees:

OK Humane does not breed label but understands some pets may be more highly sought after than others due to perceived breed or size. We use variable adoption fees to allow pets that will have a shorter length of stay to leave a financial legacy to other pets with special needs that will remain in OK Humane’s care longer.  Adoption fees help offset the cost of caring for pets in our programs but do not cover our total cost of care. We rely on donations, fundraising, and variable adoption fees to help close the gaps. A variable adoption fee that assigns higher fees to certain animals ensures we have the funds to provide for other animals that remain in our program longer due to medical or behavioral needs, size, or perceived breed. 


When you adopt from OK Humane, you are receiving over $430 of services included in your adoption fee.

  • Current vaccinations
  • Spay/neuter surgery

  • Deworming
  • Free wellness exam

Email to Meet Me

Some amazing dogs get stressed out in a kennel environment like our Adoption Center, and much prefer staying at their foster home until they find their new family. If you see a dog on our website that says “Email to Meet Me” that means that this furry friend is just a click away from getting a ride to the Adoption Center to meet you in person.
