If you are looking to grow your family this holiday season, a local animal shelter is making it a little easier to bring an adorable cat or dog into your home.
Oklahoma City Animal Welfare is hosting its “Hounds for the Holidays & Feline Navidad” in an effort to find homes for adoptable animals before Christmas.
From Dec. 12 through Dec. 23, the adoption fees for dogs, puppies and kittens have been reduced to just $30. The adoption fees for adult cats who are 6 months old or older have been waved.
All of the adoptable animals at Oklahoma City Animal Welfare are up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, treated for worms and spayed or neutered.
If a dog catches your eye and goes home with you, be sure to get a leash for it as well. Per ordinance, every dog in Oklahoma City must be confined on your property or on a leash. Dog parks are a limited exception and there are a few around the city, including at the new Scissortail Park. Dogs that are allowed to run free – especially when out at city parks – can be a threat to children or other dogs. Yes, your little Fido is sweet and friendly to everyone, but you never know how another dog might react or if a new environment can cause your furry best friend to act differently. There’s more information about leashing your dog on the city’s website or you can click this link.
