We are a non-profit pet rescue focused on finding homeless and abandoned cats new loving homes with responsible owners. Most of our cats are surrendered to us by people who can no longer care for their pets or who find themselves the caretaker of a neighborhood cat and / or kittens. All our cats are spayed or neutered, tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV, fully vaccinated, fostered in a home setting and checked by a veterinarian before adoption.

We are a small group whose goal is to match responsible owners with the right pet. When our cats don't fit an adopters' specific needs we can provide them with information on appropriate pets available from other local rescues/organizations or individuals. We are also happy to lend our expertise and resources to anyone who is looking for a specific type of pet (breed of dog or possibly de-clawed cat) or looking to rehome their own pet or a stray that they have found. In some instances we can take the pet (especially a cat) if we have room or in most cases we simply guide the owner with responsible adoption placement and advertising tips.

PAWS-OK is a non-for-profit 501(c)(3) designated organization and does not receive any public funding. Contributions are deductible under section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code. All the dollars we spend on running our organization are received as adoption fees, donations or are raised by our volunteers.

Our First Rescue!
PAWS rescued this little girl in August of 2008.  She was found by a lifeguard at the Will Rogers Pool.  It was a typical hot OKC day and she was in the drain, drinking pool water to quench her thirst.  She was about 8 weeks old.  "Sophia" was adopted to a very loving home on 9/6/08.

PAWS-OK Current Owner Surrender Status
Rehoming A Pet

If you have a pet you need to rehome, please follow these steps:

  • If you adopted the pet from a rescue or at a local PetSmart, please contact the rescue first.  Most rescues want the pet  to be returned to them so they can find it a new home. If you no longer have the paperwork and you know where you adopted it we can help you locate the rescue organization.

  • We prefer that requests for help with cats or dogs be directed to us via e-mail at pawsok@sbcglobal.net.  Please include:
1. the cats name and age
2. the reason it needs to be rehomed
3. its' spay/neuter status, year of last vaccinations and if the cat is declawed
4. your contact information (daytime phone and e-mail address)
5. the time frame you need to find the cat a new home
6. pictures of the pet.

  • Please be aware that our ability to accept cats is totally dependent on our space available and we often times have a waiting list. See chart below for our current status. We do not accept dogs at this time but we will help you find an appropriate canine rescue or a new home.

  • Oftentimes we can only assist in the rehoming of your pet by networking them through social media and here on our "Courtesy List".  In these cases we can provide you with information on rehoming including electronic application and adoption forms.
 
  • Please be aware that we will not be able to assist in the rehoming of any pet who is not spayed or neutered.  For low cost spay/neuter services see our "Links" button above.
