How to Adopt a Pet



If you are looking for a pet, we recommend that you come to the Tulsa SPCA to meet our many wonderful animals or check our MAC schedule of appearances to meet the pets who are aboard. (Remember that our space is limited on the MAC, so you may want to also visit the shelter.)  You can also view our wide variety of adoptable pets by viewing our waiting pets gallery.

Our adoption counselors are prepared to discuss with you what fits your personality and lifestyle and will help you meet the pets we have on site who will match best with you. You can meet your future new companion, walk together, get acquainted.

The minimum adoption donations are as follows.

Dogs 6 months and under are $150
Dogs over 6 months are $100.00
Cats under 6 months are $90.00
Cats over 6 months are $80.00

The donation helps pay some of the cost of Spay/Neuter, full vaccinations, flea/tick medicine (while they are here), heart worm preventative(while they are here), and microchips for dogs.

You can come in and fill out an application at the Tulsa SPCA. If applicable and to speed up the application process, please bring a copy of your current pet’s vet records and your landlord’s pet policy plus an agreement from your landlord that you are approved to house your new companion.

We want all members of a family to meet your new pet.  And, if you are adopting an additional dog, we request that you bring your other dog(s) to our shelter to meet his or her new friend.  We call this “friend testing” in a neutral setting to be sure the dogs will get along well.  These appointments will be set up by our pet placement specialist.

All of our pets receive a final check-up by our staff veterinarian before going home with you.

We send you home with helpful information on caring for your pet, a starter kit including the same food the dog or cat has been eating while with us,  with some great tips on training your adopted dog of all ages (such as crate and house training, chewing, manners, etc.), and recommendations regarding the veterinary care your new family member will need.
