Edith, known in her foster home as "Luna" or "Luna Bear," has the cutest ears you will ever see! Luna and her sister Margo came to the Central Oklahoma Humane Society at the age of 5 months under-socialized and very scared of people. Over the past three months in a foster home, Luna's personality has blossomed and she is ready to find her family! Luna has great in-home skills, such as being crate trained, house trained, knowing "sit" and "come", and giving awesome snuggles and ear kisses. Her favorite spot in her foster home is draped across her foster's shoulders on the back of the couch. She is leash trained, but is still fearful of new people and scary noises so may dart to the end of the leash if something surprises her. Her ideal home would have a confident, well-socialized dog-buddy who can show her that life isn't so scary. She is only at the start of her long journey and is looking for a loving, patient family that will help guide her and continue her socialization. She will be a challenging, but incredibly rewarding dog to add to your family. Luna would do well in a home with older children and dogs, and would likely do fine around cats. If you give her the chance to open up to you, she will love you to the moon and back.

This pet has been diagnosed with a skin condition caused by Demodex mites. This is a common condition in young dogs and is not transmissible to people or other healthy dogs. The mite causes hair loss and can be accompanied by secondary skin infections. Localized Demodex is generally considered self-limiting, meaning there is a good chance it will go away without treatment. Although most cases of Demodex are successfully treated, occasionally a dog may require long term or periodic therapy. This pet has received a dose of Bravecto and a negative skin scraping result prior to being available for adoption.

Edith is also a Special Angel, which means her adoption fee is waived.

Our Adoption Process...

People find out about our adoptable animals in a variety of ways. All our animals are listed on www.okhumane.org with photos and descriptions; many people come to outreaches looking for an animal they have seen online. Other times, an adopter meets the animal for the first time at an adoption outreach.

The first step if you want to adopt an animal is to fill out an application. This helps our Adoption Counselors ensure the animal you’ve chosen is a good fit for you, your home, your family and your lifestyle. If the application is approved, in most cases you can take the animal home with you that day.

Our adoption fee for cats and kittens is $70. For dogs, adoption fees range from $100 to $150. For cats and dogs, the fee includes spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, disease testing (and treatment, if necessary) as well as preventive medications.

In order to complete an adoption after the application has been approved there is additional necessary paperwork. You will need to fill out a Central Oklahoma Humane Society adoption agreement. This is a legally binding document that details the contract between you and the Central Oklahoma Humane Society and what you are legally obligated to provide for the animal, and what we ask you to do as the pet's new owner. By signing this document you are agreeing to the terms of the agreement.

An Adoption Counselor will help you through the paperwork process and explain the adoption agreement to you. Our Adoption Counselors and Volunteers can answer any questions you might have. A volunteer with our Adoption Follow-up Program will also call you a couple of weeks after the adoption to make sure everything is going well and see if you have any questions.
