Drake's Story...
Hello... my name is Drake and PAWS rescued me from the Ponca City Animal Shelter where I was scheduled for the gas chamber. They wrote on my cage card there that I was "WILD" but I really am not wild (I just didn't like those people there!). When PAWS took me I was so glad to get out of that place where I'd been for a WEEK! PAWS took me to their vet because I had a bum eye from a fight I had been in. At the vet they put an "eye stain" in my eye and gave my foster mom some medicine that got me cleared up right away. While I was there they also neutered me and gave me my vaccinations too. I wasn't wild" there.... not for one minute, but I have to admit, I was scared... after all I didn't know these people and I didn't know if they were any better than the ones at the shelter. They were very nice and my foster mom has also been great with me. Now I like to sit on her lap and show her what a BIG purring motor I have (see my video). I am looking for a great new home with someone as nice as the people I have met at PAWS (I don't think they make them any nicer!) Maybe you are one of those people? I have to admit that I am shy at first with new people so please if you adopt me, don't dump me out in the middle of a big room and expect me to be a social butterfly! I will need some time to adjust to the new smells and noises in your home as well as you too! I have not been around kids but if yours are noisy and rushing around they might scare me. I haven't got along great with cats in the past - they really didn't like me much but if you have a friendly one I'd probably get along just fine. Even though I am a male I am not one of those "alpha" guys usually. I'd love to get a real home soon. Thanks for listening (my foster mom thinks I talk too much too!)

All PAWS-OK cats and kittens have been fostered in a home environment and are litter box trained, up-to-date on their vaccinations, spayed or neutered and have been tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV prior to being made available for adoption. The adoption fee is $70 (cash only).

Some of our cats are available for adoption at the PetSmart on NW Expressway and Rockwell in OKC. Please check our website at and go to the "Adopt" tab to see a list of those currently available in the PetSmart Adoption Center.

The first step in adoption is to complete an Adoption Request form which we use to help us match you with a cat or kitten that best meets your desires, experience and home environment. You can request one at: or pick one up at PetSmart. Thanks for adopting a rescued cat - they make the best pets!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Drake, a Oklahoma City Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Oklahoma City, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Oklahoma City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oklahoma City already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Oklahoma City breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oklahoma City paves the way for another one to be saved.
