Approvals can take 2-4 days. If approved a time and place is set up for a "meet & greet" of the whole family and the adoptable cat.
All adopters sign a PAWS-OK Adoption contract that covers a variety of issues related to the adoption, care and medical needs of the cat.
Adoption fees are $80 but can vary depending on the age, health and special needs of the cat.
We will make a phone contact with the adopter post adoption to check that the cat is settling in, the adopter is happy & to answer any ??'s.
The Pet Adoption and Welfare Services of Oklahoma (PAWS-OK) is a non-profit pet rescue founded in 2008 and focused on finding homeless and abandoned cats new loving homes. 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.
PAWS cats are suitable as house cats / family members only. Many of our adult cats have been family pets all their lives and the kittens we have are fostered in family homes and socialized as house pets. Most are dog friendly and wouldn't recognize a potential outside threat if it announced itself. 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, all volunteer 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 advise anyone who is looking for a specific type of pet (breed of dog or possibly declawed cat) or looking to re-home their own pet or a stray that they have found.
We also seek to educate the public on the current Oklahoma animal welfare laws and urge everyone to communicate with their elected officials to encourage their support for animal friendly legislation.
And of course, we support all the spay and neuter efforts of our counterparts and other organizations. The greatest impact to our city's pet overpopulation issue and the resulting alarmingly high rate of euthanasia at our local shelters will only be reduced through spay and neuter programs. If you are looking for a low cost option for spaying or neutering your pet, please click on "Links" at http://pawsok.com for information on low cost services in your area.
PAWS-OK is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) designated organization and does not receive any public funding. Contributions are deductible under section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code. Every dollar raised by PAWS through adoption fees, donations and fundraising events is used to support our programs.
PAWS cats are all fostered in family homes where they are socialized, stimulated and cared for by our loving volunteers. About few of our adoptable cats and kittens can be viewed in our Adoption Center inside the PetSmart on NW Expressway and Rockwell during normal business hours (Mon-Sat 9 AM - 8 PM, Sun 10 AM - 5 PM). Due to COVID any of our cats are available to meet, by appointment, for applicants with an approved Adoption Request. Scheduled Meet & Greet events, informational booths and other rescue events have been cancelled due to COVID in the Oklahoma City area.
