Outside of a jungle of rain-washed pines and junipers spearing the new blueness in the Florida sky, ran a small, tawny-haired boy.

Officers will investigate, take a report and ensure the animal is quarantined for 10 days to watch for signs of rabies. Be prepared to provide the date, time and location where the bite occurred, the victim's identifying information and the location of the wound. Injured Animals Field officers can rescue stray or loose animals that are injured and take them to the OKC Animal Shelter or another veterinary clinic for immediate care.

Feral Cats The City of Oklahoma City offers a Trap Neuter Release (TNR) program for feral cats, known as the Community Cat Program. If a member of the community brings a feral cat to the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter, the cat will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated for rabies and returned to where it was trapped or captured. There is no cost to the public for this program. The program helps manage free-roaming cat populations without harming them and can eventually lead to a humane end to a cat overpopulation situation in your neighborhood.
Oklahoma City Animal Welfare encourages the public to take part in this program. We will even loan you a trap at no cost. Cats may be brought to the OKC Animal Shelter at 2811 SE 29th Street between the hours of 9am and 5:30pm, seven days a week, except major holidays. For more information on the Community Cat Program and its benefits, please read our printable flyer about feral cats (PDF) or email awinfo@okc.
gov. Barking Dogs Most dog owners are unaware that their dog is barking when they're gone until someone tells them. We encourage neighborly communication to try to solve the problem before filing a complaint. To report a nuisance barking dog, the dog must be habitually, regularly and continuously barking unprovoked. To send a warning to a dog owner regarding their barking dog, please report the dog to the Action Center.
To file a citation against a dog owner regarding a barking dog, the complainant must come to the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter during business hours. The person who is bothered by the barking must be willing to file a complaint and be willing to testify in court that such dog is a nuisance. Disaster Response OKC Animal Welfare is a part of the City's Emergency Management planning and response. We're responsible for rescuing animals in need during emergencies and managing the sheltering system for homeless and abandoned animals.
We encourage everyone to incorporate your pets into your family's disaster planning. Use a microchip and collar with tags for all of your pets to help us identify them and reunite them with you if they get lost in a disaster. Consider volunteering for Animal Welfare's Disaster Brigade to help pets during disasters. Read about how to prepare a disaster kit for your pet in our printable flyer (PDF).
