Our Adoptable Pets
***NOTE***: Zoi's Animal Rescue has established locations in both Oklahoma and Texas. The location of the adoptable pet is not always updated by PetFinder so we have included it in each animal's description. While searching for a pet please be aware of its location as falling in love with an out of state animal will require some additional time to bring the two of you together. Thank You.

The UGLY Truth

There are an estimated 30,000 dogs and cats euthanized every year in Oklahoma shelters. Most are put to death simply because there is not enough room or funds to house and care for them until they can be adopted.

This is a crisis.

If we don't come to their aid, many more will NEEDLESSLY suffer and die.

But there is HOPE! Together, we can help stop the hurt.

5 Ways You Can Help

There are 5 main ways you help: Adopt   |   Foster   |   Donate   |   Volunteer   |   Tell

Finding good homes for our rescued animals is our primary mission. If you are looking to adopt a new member of the family, please consider Zoi's Animal Rescue first! If you are interested in adopting one of our animals, please see the Adopting A Friend section below. (Or click the Adopting Info link on the left.)

If you are not looking to adopt, please consider helping us in these other ways:


Obviously, we need people to adopt the animals we rescue, but did you know that we need foster families just as much? Since we do not have a facility to house all the animals we rescue we rely on foster families to shelter, care for and love them until their forever families come along. Since many of our animals are strays or have been abused, loving, gentle human contact is a must!

Some people may be afraid to foster because they fear they will grow attached their foster animal. This is completely understandable. It can be difficult to say goodbye, but our fosters will tell you that there is nothing more rewarding than seeing your foster dog or cat be adopted into their forever home and knowing you played a part in that. If you would like to apply to be a foster family, please email us today.

Without the generosity of others, we can't continue helping those animals in need.

We are always in need of donations to help keep the group going. Many of the dogs and cats we rescue come to us sick or injured. For most of the pets that are adopted, the adoption fee doesn't cover our medical and boarding expenses. Please help us continue to help those who can not help themselves. (All donations are tax-deductible, but if you donate cash or in-kind gifts, please request a receipt. If you donate Online or by check, your email or canceled check will serve as your receipt.)


You can make a one time donation by using the Donate button at the top of the page or below. You can choose to use your credit card or your paypal account. If there is a particular animal or fundraiser that you would like for the donation to go toward, simply click the "Add Instructions..." link and put your comments there.

You can now schedule donations to be automatically given to Zoi's each month. Below you will find the "Subscribe" button and the Payment options. You can select $5, $10, $25 or $50. This would be a wonderful way of supporting our mission. Paypal subscription payments can be cancelled at any time.

Payment Options

Of course we still accept donations via check. Just make your check payable to "ZAR" and mail it to: Zoi's Animal Rescue, P.O. Box 2905, Claremore, OK 74018. If there is a particular animal or fundraiser that you would like for the donation to go toward, write that in the memo line.

If you feel like giving your donation to us in person, please feel free! Just check out Our Events and stop by.

In-kind gifts such as PetSmart gift cards, food, used blankets, towels, crates of all kinds, paper towels, and bleach are always welcome and greatly appreciated.

We also have memberships to Zoi's to help with our operating costs. Memberships are just $25.00 a year. Click here for the form (or just email us and we will send you a membership form to fill out and return to us.) Or you can stop by PetSmart in Owasso on Saturday and fill one out in person. Please partner with us today!!! If you would like to include a check with your membership form, that is fine, or you can make a One-Time Donation of $25 and put "Membership" in the "Add Instructions.." section.

We always are looking for dedicated, dependable, and dog-loving volunteers to help us with our Saturday showings at PetSmart in Owasso and other events. If you are least 18 years old or can be accompanied by an adult and are interested in volunteering, please contact us today!

If you believe in what we do, please tell your friends and family about us! Ask them to consider us when adopting a new friend or when looking for a good charitable cause!

Click Here for Our Adoptable Pet List

You can meet a selection of our adoptable dogs nearly every weekend at a location in the Tulsa/Owasso area. Please click here to see a list of our upcoming events.

We don't have most of our cats listed online, but they are shown at PetSmart in Owasso on most Saturdays and some Sundays. So, stop by PetSmart in Owasso and check them out!

An actual shelter is a dream of ours that we will keep chasing! For now, if you can't come to PetSmart during our Saturday showings you can call to make an appointment for a private meeting with your new best friend! Since most of our animals are fostered or boarded, we will have to coordinate with the foster or boarding facility's schedule.

All animals are adopted out on a first come, first serve basis. However, because the animal's welfare is our utmost concern, we do require each potential adopter to complete an adoption application prior to an adoption being approved. *Please note: Filling out an application does not guarantee approval and we reserve the right to deny any application for ANY reason.*

Typically, once the adoption application is approved and the adoption fee is paid, you can take your new family member home! If the animal still needs to be spayed or neutered, it may be required they be spayed or neutered before they are released.

Our adoption fees* are $150.00 for dogs, which includes all shots, spay/neuter, fecal, heart worm test and microchipping. The fee for cats is $85.00 which includes all shots, spay/neuter, and feline leukemia test.

*Please keep in mind that our adoption fees do not cover the overall cost of caring for the animals we rescue. Therefore, if you can give anything above and beyond the adoption fee, we would greatly appreciate it!

Important Note About Breeds
We do our best to try to figure out what the breed(s) are of the animals in our rescue. However, because many of the animals are strays, we simply have no way of knowing for sure. Therefore, we make no guarantee as to the breed(s) of any of our animals.

In October of 2003, we rescued 2 special pups, a brother and sister. They were about 6 weeks old and nearly hairless as they had a form of mange. The female had a birth defect which had made her left front leg draw up. Her right front leg isn't exactly normal either. We named her Zoi, which in Greek means "life".

Zoi taught us many things as we watched her grow. She doesn't know she is labeled unadoptable due to not being perfect. She runs, plays, steals food, loves, kisses, jumps up, just like all the other dogs around her. She has a strong, iron will and remarkable determination. (Which are the very traits you need when you do animal rescue! No matter how difficult it gets, you can't give up!)

We named our rescue group in honor of her. Zoi is our mascot and our mentor and because of her, we have become a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is committed to giving life to the abandoned and unwanted.

Watch your dog... you just might learn something!

Many people contact us each week asking for help with finding an animal a home. Some of the animals are strays, unwanted litters, and some are surrendered due to an unforeseeable event in the owner's life. Because of the poor economy, more and more animals are being outright abandoned by their owners-left to fend for themselves in their own backyards. To make matters worse, the economy is causing fewer people to adopt animals.

This is why we are currently UNABLE to take in any more animals from those looking to find homes for their own animals or for those they have found abandoned or wandering. Our mission is to help animals in need, but our rescue can only support a certain number of animals - and we have unfortunately reached our limit.

Helpful Information Sheet
However, because we care so much about the welfare of animals, we still would like to offer help to those looking to rehome an animal. Therefore, we have put together a information sheet to give you ideas on how to find your animal a good home. Please click here for the information. (The sheet is in a PDF format, so if you do not have Adobe Reader, please click the "Get Adobe" button above.)

We hope that this information will be useful to you in your efforts.
