The Name Game!

Hello, my name is...

Here's a great opportunity to christen a pet with the perfect moniker or to name a pet in honor of or in memory of someone -- or even as a gift for a birthday, graduation, anniversary, Bar (or Bat) Mitzvah, or Christmas.

ARF will allow you to name an available dog or cat for a $50 donation or you can name a dog or cat after your company for a $200 donation (companies can name two pets for a donation of $350). We rescue animals every week, so there are plenty of chances to name them.

ARF does have the right to deny a name under the conditions of unsuitability (the name would be detrimental to the animal's chances of adoption, i.e. "Killer," "Digger," "Devil"), profanity, or frequency (the name is already being used by one of our animals or has been used too frequently already). To get an idea of names that are used frequently, see the lists below.

top ten puppy names

If the name you want to use is one of the frequent ones, change it up a bit. Want to name one Maggie after a friend? How about Li'l Maggie or Maggie (and her middle or last name), or Maggie Two?

This is your time to get creative and help ARF pay for important things, such as vaccinations, spaying and neutering, and heartworm tests and treatment.

Send your donation and name to ARF, P.O Box 471483, Tulsa, OK 74147-1483 or you can send the donation online (visit our make a donation page) and email the name you want to submit to

The offer is good until the end of the year!

Found A Stray?

Visit this site for information on what to do.

ARF does not pick up stray dogs, cats, puppies, or kittens. The City of Tulsa will pick up strays and some other rescue groups might assist you.

Don't Litter!

It is against Tulsa pet ordinances for you to have a dog or cat older than 6 months that is not spayed or neutered.

Please help us save more dogs from being destroyed at kill shelters by spaying and neutering your pets. Unless you are a licensed breeder, you should not have an intact dog or cat. Be part of the solution instead of part of the problem!

What Is TOKT?

ARF's tattoo numbers begin with the letters TOKT. If you find a dog with those letters followed by numbers tattooed to its inner thigh, please call ARF and let us know.

What Parents and Children Should Know!

If you are adopting a dog or already have a pet in the house, please look at this video (Preventing Dog Bites to Kids) to prevent your child and pet from injury and heartbreak. Did you know that 77 percent of all dog bites happen with family pets or with pets belonging to friends? Watch and learn.
