OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – This month, the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter wants metro residents to share some love during their weeklong Furever Love adoption special celebrating Valentine’s Week.
The Furever Love event features half-price adoptions this weekend from noon to 5:30 p.m. Feb. 10-11. All adoptable dogs and puppies will be $30 during the event. Can’t make it in this weekend? Half price adoptions will continue through February 17th.
The Shelter will have Valentine’s Day-themed decorations and events, including heart-shaped pet IDs, a kissing booth and photo opportunities.
“We are reaching out to the community to help us place homeless pets into new loving homes this Valentine’s Day,” said Animal Welfare Superintendent Jonathan Gary. “There’s no better way to celebrate this special day than to receive the unconditional love these pets have to give.”
All animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all age appropriate vaccinations and preventatives.
The Animal Welfare Division of Oklahoma City is responsible for promoting public health and safety and for temporarily sheltering and providing humane disposition of unwanted or lost animals.
The Division promotes animal welfare so that pet ownership is a pleasure for owners without becoming a burden to the community. Promoting pet adoptions is a top priority for the Welfare Division.
Located at 2811 SE 29th St. at S. Bryant Avenue, the Shelter is open for adoptions or reclaiming lost pets from noon to 5:45 p.m. every day except holidays.
