Animal Adoption Process

The City of Owasso strongly encourages everyone to consider adopting a pet from a municipal animal shelter or reputable 501c3 animal rescue organization.  We also strongly encourage everyone to spay and neuter their pets, not only because it is required by Owasso city ordinance and Oklahoma state law, but to help reduce Oklahoma's pet overpopulation, and the number of unwanted pets entering Oklahoma animal shelters.   

Periodically, the Owasso Animal Shelter receives a variety of stray and unwanted dogs and cats, each deserving of a loving, forever home.  You can either stop by the animal shelter in person during normal business hours, or view the animals online on our Facebook page, Owasso Animal Shelter.  We do suggest that you call the animal shelter 918-272-4965 to ensure that an officer is at the shelter, and not in the field.  Persons under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.  Our Facebook page is kept current and updated daily.  If no animals are posted "Available For Adoption" on our Facebook page, then we don't currently have any animals available for adoption.

Apply for Adoption

If you see an animal you're interested in, there is an adoption application (PDF) and approval process. Once your application has been approved and the adoption fee has been paid, the animal will be scheduled for veterinary services, including spaying or neutering.
