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!

    We would like to introduce everyone to Boomer this week!

    Boomer is about 2 years old and is a Pit Bull Terrier mix who came to us after his owner died. He is absolutely a "gentleman's dog" and is gentle, well-behaved and very eager to please. We are just so very impressed with this dog! He is excellent on a leash, looks to his Person for guidance on what he needs to be doing, loves children, gets along with other dogs and appears to be house-trained. What else is there to say?

    Boomer is neutered, tested negative for heart worms, has been fully vaccinated, de-wormed, treated for ticks and fleas and is ready for a home of his own. Need a little bit more incentive? His adoption fee is only $50!! Contact SCHS at 580-252-7387 for more information about this beautiful dog.

    Really who could resist Addie's adorable face? This 5 year old German Shepherd is one smart girl. She knows commands, walks amazing, loves toys, seems somewhat housebroken, so far good with male dogs we just need to test her with female dogs.

    Addie is a girl who knows how to tell you what she wants; she carries her food bowl around in the morning waiting patiently for her breakfast, and is a favorite with our dog walkers. Addie needs a knowledgeable home with a fenced yard because she loves to run and play. She is ready to find that forever home, could that home be yours?
