OKLAHOMA CITY – People considering adopting a shelter pet this summer are invited to check out the dogs and cats during the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter’s “rock star” adoption event this weekend.
The event, dubbed “Woofstock,” is from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. July 11-12 at PetSmart on I-40 and MacArthur.
During “Woofstock,” adoption fees for kittens are just $30 and adult cats are free.
Dogs and puppies can also be adopted for $30.
The special pricing is also good at the shelter.
All pets are sterilized, vaccinated and treated for fleas and ticks.
The shelter is competing in the Rachel Ray 100K Challenge. “Our goal is to place more than 2,300 dogs and cats in caring homes between June 1 and August 31,” interim Animal Welfare superintendent Jon Gary said.
The Rachel Ray challenge is a competition involving $140 in grant prizes to increase adoption rates at animal shelters nationwide.
The shelter is currently overcrowded with approximately 535 animals of all types in the census.
The Oklahoma City Animal Shelter is open for adoptions from noon to 5:45 p.m. every day except holidays at SE 29 & Bryant, 1.5 miles east of Interstate 35.
