Programs & Services

Norman Animal Welfare boasts various programs and services to ensure, promote and protect the health, and welfare of Norman's animal population through education, enforcement, and community partnership.


Adopt an animal to become an integral part of your home, family, and lifestyle. With animals of all breeds, ages and sizes, our goal is to help animals find their forever home. 

Our available animals are updated daily. 


Animal Control

Norman Animal Welfare Officers enforce City of Norman animal ordinances and educate the public on responsible pet ownership. 

Animal Welfare Officers respond to calls for service within the Norman city limits daily and are on-call for overnight emergency calls. 

To file a report or make an animal-related complaint with an Animal Welfare Officer, call 405-321-1444. 

Foster Program

Fostering saves the lives of cats and dogs each day, while allowing you the chance to share your home with wonderful animals. By fostering an animal, you teach these animals to co-exist with others peacefully and happily. Fosters provide animals important training in a relaxing environment, which then makes these cats and dogs more ready for adoption. As you become familiar with foster animals as temporary members of your family, you will learn more about their personalities and gain important information that you can share with potential adopting families.

Norman Animal Welfare provides all of the supplies you need to foster a cat or dog.

To foster an animal, apply through our Volunteer Program. For more information on becoming a foster, call 405-292-9736.

Live Trap Services

Norman Animal Welfare offers live trap services. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 405-292-9736.

The City of Norman provides limited funds for spays and neuters for Norman residents who meet certain low-income guidelines. If you are in need of a low cost spay or neuter program, you can fill out an application online, print an application, or request to have an application mailed to you. 

Applicants must reside in Norman city limits and meet all qualification guidelines outlined in the application.
