If you are looking for a new family member - a furry one, with four legs - now might be the perfect time to adopt.
Sand Springs Animal Welfare is in the middle of a clear the shelter event, where you can adopt a dog or cat for $25.
"We want them to have the best match at a home - the people to be happy and the animals to be happy,” said Tracy Arvidson with Sand Springs Animal Welfare. “It is great when we get follow ups from people who say that the animals are just wonderful and great, and they love them. That is what we want to hear because that is what they deserve, they all deserve a great home.”
From Wednesday until Friday, the dogs and cats at Sand Springs Animal Welfare can be adopted for $25.
"It is a Bissell Pet Foundation Promotion, and they do this with shelters across the country," said Arvidson. "It is just wonderful. The animals are spayed and neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, flea treatment, we do microchips as well."
Maybe you are looking for a friendly, playful, and vocal dog like two-year-old Nila or maybe you want a gentle giant, who loves a good cuddle like five-year-old Gravy. Check out Juno, this dog has some serious energy and a steel blue gaze, and Whiskey over here is a lover.
Perhaps you just want to take home a baby who has been through a lot, like Maybel, whose owner was just put in hospice care.
"We get lots of socialization with the dogs, it really helps them out a lot, we can work with them on different issues," said Arvidson.
The dogs have some fantastic personalities and love humans, but they aren't all great with other dogs, so ask about their temperament if you stop by. If you're a cat person, there are kittens ready to find their forever homes.
"Come see us! We want to see you here; we want to introduce you to the animals and see if we can find the best match for you," said Arvidson.
Below is a list of animals available as of Wednesday evening. Please call the shelter and double check the list, some of these animals may have already been adopted by the time you see this list.
