Pet Adoption Animal - Marshal

Norman Animal Welfare is the place for pet adoptions with new animals available each day

If you are seeking a new addition to your family, Norman Animal Welfare brings people and animals together. Our staff and volunteers aim to help you find the perfect companion and form a lasting bond. We can assist with matching an animal's social, exercise and training needs to you.   

All of our adoptable pets have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, tested for heartworms, and receive a thorough medical exam. 



Pet Adoption Process

The Adoption Process

Before you adopt, we recommend doing your research to find out more about the tendencies and personality traits of the dogs and cats that interest you. While our staff can assist you onsite with specifics regarding the individual animal, it is good to understand the general breed characteristics and behavior traits. Potential adopters should also consider their preferences on age, animal size, exercise requirements, grooming needs, and potential health concerns of each breed or breed mix. 

  • Look online at our available pets. 
  • No appointments are necessary to come visit with our adoptable animals. Our staff and volunteers will be available to help you through this process.
  • Once you have found the right pet for you, our staff will assist you with completing our adoption paperwork. Remember you must be at least 18-years-old and have a photo identification card with your current address to adopt. 
  • All animals are our facility are first come, first served basis.
