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!



Stephens County Humane Society will help out with your Valentine's Day treats for a love one or important person in your life. What a great way to remember your office staff, Dr., church staff, and of course those special people in your life, while also helping the Stephens County Humane Society!  Delivery is available for just $5, what a deal!   AND, the presentation is beautiful! Call Patti at 580 641-0667 to order.

    Mindy is a 4 - 5 months old Pit Bull Terrier mix, fully vaccinated, spayed, sleek & beautiful and ready for a home of her own! Mindy is at that perfect age to soak up any lessons you want to teach her. She is nearly completely crate-trained, is learning all about the fun of walking on a leash and has a good start on learning other house manners.

    Mindy is an affectionate pup and loves lounging on a pet bed with her person and a good chew toy! Mindy is good with other dogs, curious about cats and loves human companions. She doles out kisses and she loves to play with children who can handle her puppy playful nature.

    Mindy will be at Petco this Saturday unless she is adopted first! For more information about this beautiful pup, please call the Shelter, 580-252-7387.

    We would like to introduce everyone to Lucy, a tan and white Staffordshire Terrier mix who is between 1 and 2 years old. Lucy is a big girl, and weighs in at a whopping 50 pounds of solid muscle, with the body of an oversized corgi. ❤️️Lucy was found alone in a dog house in Lawton by one of the animal control officers - emaciated and with terrible wounds on her legs that had to be stitched and stapled. That was in September of 2016.

    Lucy received lots of love from the great people at the shelter, healed physically, but she is still skittish and her trust in humans needs some more restoration. She is warming up beautifully to us and all her fur foster brothers and sisters of all sizes. She LOVES car and truck rides, and rides shotgun like a human. Lucy loves her kennel and is housebroken and also enjoys just to hang out and watch TV and just to be loved on. She walks great on a leash and would be a great exercise partner. Lucy needs a relaxed environment, she loves peace and quiet.

    Lucy is microchipped, spayed, up to date on shots and has a clean bill of health. The only reminder of her obviously not so happy early days are the scars on her legs. If you'd like to meet Lucy please call Mark at 580 695-0994

    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?

    Adoption Applications can be submitted at under Adoptable Animals tab.  Please allow 48 hours for a response during normal business hours. (Wednesday-Friday 11-6 and Saturday 10-2).  Applications can also be submitted over the phone 580-767-8877 during normal business hours.

    Crowley is a stunning 11 month old Great Dane Mix. He was found by two children in Mannsville, when he was just weeks old. The family couldn't find the owner but couldn't keep him either. They gave him to a friend who gave him to another friend in Comanche County who again gave him to someone else and now it's our turn to make sure he will find his forever home.

    This guy has lots of energy to burn and needs plenty of exercise and stimulation. If you have space for Crowley to play, a privacy fence to keep him safe and want unconditional love, you must meet Crowley! Crowley doesn't like other dogs!!!

    Call (580)919-5117 today to schedule a day/time to meet this handsome fella!
