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 stray and/or kittens. All our cats are spayed or neutered, tested for FeLV and FIV, 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 (i.e specific dog breed or declawed cat). If we do not have space available to rescue a pet we can guide you to other responsible adoption agencies and advertising options.

Re-Homing A Pet
Follow these steps:
1. 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.
2. PAWS-OK will always take cats we previously adopted back into our rescue. Please call or text our volunteer at (405) 204-3964 or use the contact link on this page to message us.
3. If you are wanting to surrender a new cat to us for our program please be aware that our ability to accept cats is totally dependent on space available and we usually have a waiting list.
We will not assist in the re-homing of any pet who is not spayed or neutered. We strongly suggest that
1. You spay or neuter all cats / kittens BEFORE finding them a new home so that they can't contribute to our current overpopulation crisis. We have a list of low cost clinics on our "Spay & Neuter" page.
2. DO NOT offer any pet up for FREE. See our "Never Free" page.
3. If you live in OKC, surrendering a pet to the OKC Shelter on SE 29th is now BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please call first to arrange a time.
Here are two documents you can use to help you find a great new owner for your cat:

Our cats and kittens don't get rescued and rehomed on their own - it take a "village" of volunteers and right now we are in need of a few good people who can put in a few hours a week helping us out.

COVID UPDATE and Changes
A few of our cats can be “viewed” at PetSmart (NW Expressway and Rockwell) but in order to arrange a meeting with them, potential adopters must complete an Adoption Request Form to be approved to adopt and then schedule an appointment with a PAWS-OK Representative.
You can see which cats are in the Adoption Center by selecting "Adoptable Cats" from the menu strip above.
Thanks for your understanding, we are trying to keep potential adopters, our volunteers and store staff as safe as possible.
