Best Friends of Pets finds caring homes for pets through our adoption outreaches and postings online. All pets are spayed or neutered and vaccinated.
Best Friends does not have a shelter facility. Instead, all pets are kept in foster homes.
See some of our pets below. Foster or contact information for each pet is shown on the petís information page. To adopt a pet, arrange a visit or for more information about a pet, contact the person listed.
- 4th Saturday at NW Expressway Petco 12-4
See our Calendar under News and Events for more adoption outreaches.

Best Friends does not have a shelter or foster network and does not take in pets. Pets may be taken to animal shelters, but there is no guarantee they will be placed for adoption.
Homes may be found by placing ads in newspapers. If placing an ad, be sure to charge something for the pet even if it is only $15 or $20. Some unscrupulous people get free pets and sell them for research or to puppy mills.
Check Petfinder (link to www.petfinder.com) to search for rescue groups that might help. These groups may not be able to take pets because they are full. However, they may work with pet owners who are willing to take care of their pets until they are adopted.
Adoption Help - Best Friends will help find homes for pets as long as the following conditions are met:
* Current on vaccinations
* Heartworm negative (dog) / Feline leukemia/FIV negative (cat)
* Good health and temperament
Pet Owners / Caregivers
* Willing and able to foster pet until it is adopted
* Provide veterinarian’s name, clinic name and phone number
When these criteria are met, Best Friends will post pet photos and information at www.bestfriendsokc.petfinder.com and allow this pet at its adoption outreaches.
If the pet does not meet the first three conditions but the owner/caregiver is willing to foster the pet, Best Friends can help provide access to the veterinary services needed.
To be considered for Best Friends’ help, send pet information and up to three photos (jpg) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit bestfriendsokc.petfinder.com to see the type of information needed. Include contact information (phone number and/or email address) to be posted with the pet’s information.
