Our Mission

For more than 25 years, ARF has been helping homeless pets of the Tulsa area find loving homes. We do this by rescuing homeless animals out of area shelters that were possibly in line for euthanasia, placing them in foster homes, providing their comprehensive veterinary care, and finding suitable adoptive homes.

Adoption Policy


Our Petfinder database is updated frequently and is as current as possible. We process all applications as they are received. We require a NON-REFUNDABLE adoption fee for approved application.

Adoption donations are as follows:

$175 and Up for dogs 7 years or younger (see amount listed on dog’s bio)
$100 for most dogs older than 7 years
$75 – $125 for cats and kittens (see amount listed on cat’s bio)
What your adoption donation covers:

Your new pet’s spay or neuter
Micro-chipping for future identification
Heartworm test
Current vaccinations
In addition to your adoption donation, you are strongly encouraged to purchase 6 months of heartworm preventative for any adopted dog at the time of the adoption. This can be purchased from one of our vets or from your own vet. All provided services listed above can be completed at one of our Partner Vets as part of your adoption.

Before you fill out an application, please understand that:

ARF does not ship our pets you will be required to pick up your pet in Tulsa.

ARF does not adopt puppies or kittens (under the age of 6 months) to applicants who live outside the immediate Tulsa area. This is because many are too young at that time to be spayed or neutered. Special considerations can be made and should be discussed before making an application.
Applicants outside the immediate Tulsa area must have excellent veterinary records in their name for current or recent cats or dogs.
