The shelter says if you can’t adopt, you might consider a holiday sleepover to get some of the dogs out of the shelter for Thanksgiving.

Participants can come to the shelter and choose an adoptable dog until Nov. 23 to take home. Then simply return them on Nov. 26.

Oklahoma City Animal Welfare is located at 2811 S.E. 29th St. in Oklahoma City.

It is open for adoptions and lost & found pets from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. every day but holidays.
