Animal shelters and rescue groups in the Oklahoma City metro area are working to find their dogs and cats a forever, loving home for the holidays.

Many organizations are hosting pet adoption events across the metro.

According to officials with the Midwest City Animal Welfare, the shelter is full and many animals are on the verge of being euthanized. Currently, there are 21 dogs and 10 cats needing homes.

The Midwest City Animal Welfare hosts an adoption event every Sunday. This Sunday, the event will take place from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Walgreens at 15th and Air Depot.
