Is OK Humane a local branch of the ASPCA or Humane Society of the United States?

But did you know that these organizations are not affiliated with, nor are they a “branch” of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) or the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA)?

Can I bring my pet in to the Oklahoma Humane Society for annual vaccinations?

We currently offer Vaccination Visits if your pet is already spayed or neutered. While we are able to provide the yearly vaccinations and brief examination we are not able to diagnosis or treat any illness; if our licensed veterinarian notices anything that needs further examination we will refer to a full-service veterinarian in the metro.

How long do animals stay in foster care?

The duration varies depending on case. The average time is 2 to 8 weeks.

If I have my own animals, can I foster?
Yes, but we do ask fosters serve a “quarantine” time before mixing with other animals to decrease risk of spreading possible illnesses. The health risk is minimal if your animals are current on vaccinations and obtain a healthy lifestyle.
Can I foster if I have children?
Yes, fostering is a great family experience! While not every animal is fit for a family lifestyle, there are pets out there that are ready for the love of people of all ages! Fostering teaches children lessons in responsibility, respect, and caring for animals.
Who goes to foster?

  • Adult cats

Misc.

Surrendering Your Pet

OK Humane is a foster-based rescue with no sheltering facilities, so an animal’s acceptance into our program is reliant on an available foster home. Fill out the Re-Home Your Pet Form to request that OK Humane take your pet.

If you are looking to surrender your pet immediately, please seek out your municipal animal shelter.

Reporting Animal Abuse, Neglect or Hoarding

OK Humane is a rescue, and does not have the jurisdiction to intervene on hoarding/abuse/neglect cases. Your municipal animal shelter is the organization that employs Animal Welfare Officers with the authority to follow up on such cases. If you are within Oklahoma City Limits, the OKC Animal Welfare dispatch number is 405-297-2255.

Lost & Found Pets

OK Humane scans all incoming animals for microchips. The owner will be called immediately if an animal is chipped. If your pet is not chipped, but you have provided a description or photo of your pet, your email will be forwarded to our intake team. They will be in touch if they see an animal that matches your description.

If you have found a dog or cat, we encourage you to take them to your local shelter. Shelters are the first place people will look for their lost pets. Shelters will hold an animal for several days before making them available for adoption. This gives the owner plenty of time to come forward and claim their pet. OK Humane is a foster-based rescue and does not have sheltering facilities.

Did you know 1 in 3 pets will go missing in their lifetime? We’re partnering with Petco Love Lost to help pets reunite with their families. Petco Love Lost is a free, easy-to-use national resource, using patented pet facial recognition technology to make it easier than ever to find possible matches for lost and found pets.
