OKC Animal Welfare is offering half-price dog adoptions and several special events during "Dogtober."

Dog adoptions will be $30 all month long at OKC Animal Welfare, 2811 SE 29th Street. Open every day, but holidays from noon to 5:30 p.m.

“‘Dogtober’ is one of the best times of the year to adopt a dog not only because of the adoption specials, but because the fall weather is great to spend time outside with your new pet,” said Animal Welfare Superintendent Jon Gary. “Stop by Animal Welfare any day of the month, or visit us at one of our special events.”
