From shelters to foster and adoption groups, there are many different options when you are looking to add a new four-legged member to your family. Every week Townsquare's Pet Patrol, brought to you by Midtown Animal Hospital highlights adoptable pets from across the Southwest Oklahoma and North Texas areas, hoping to find furr-ever homes for shelter pets from throughout the region.

This week we are highlighting animals from 12 shelters, and hope to add more as momentum builds for this project. We will also be featuring information on upcoming events at our local shelters, as well as bringing you information on upcoming fund raising activities for these organization.

The Pet Patrol is brought to you by Midtown Animal Hospital. We would also like to thank Just 4 K9s and Kitties 2, your home for grooming supplies, as well as all of your pets' needs, from food to beds to toys. Please remember to spay and neuter, and of course to adopt, not shop!



Special congratulations are in order to Russell Anderson and everyone at Lawton Animal Welfare, who, with their Two-Hearts adoption event that past weekend went over 1,000 adoptions during their 2016-2017 fiscal year. The most impressive part is the year will run though the end of June, so they still have another month to add to that incredible total. Way to go guys!


Over the past weekend, the last three featured dogs from Friends Fur Change in Chickasha found new homes. Congratulations to Ozzie, Sally and Shylee for finding their forever homes.
