There are many organizations throughout Southwest Oklahoma dedicated to pets and pet adoptions. From shelters to foster and adoption groups, there are many different options when you are looking to add a new four-legged member to your family.

Every week Townsquare's Pet Patrol will be highlighting adoptable pets from throughout the Southwest Oklahoma area, hoping to find furr-ever homes for shelter pets from throughout the region.

This week we are highlighting animals from 8 shelters, and hope to add more as momentum builds for this project. We will also be featuring information on upcoming events at our local shelters, as well as bringing you information on upcoming fund raising activities for these organization.

Please remember to spay and neuter your pets, and of course to adopt, not shop!

SUCCESS STORIES

In our very first Townsquare Pet Patrol, Friends Furr Change of Chickashaw featured Boo Boo, a handsome 3-year old Chihuahua mix, who had been in foster care for over 8 months. We are happy to report that Boo Boo has finally found his furr-ever home, and as you can see by the picture, is very happy to have a new boy to call his own.
