WOOFSTOCK, a ‘one stop shop’ for finding the perfect pet
Oklahoma Alliance for Animals (OAA), animal welfare organizations and shelters around Green Country, are coming together for the 10th Annual “Woofstock,” Oklahoma’s largest and grooviest pet adoption event scheduled for Saturday, September 26th from 10 am to 2 pm at Riverwalk Crossing in Jenks.
“Woofstock” activities include:
- Adoptable pets from over 35 animal rescue organizations and shelters. All newly adopted pets will receive a FREE micro-chip, ID tag, goody bag (Courtesy of OAA), Wellness exam (courtesy of the Mobile Pet Vet) and a photo with their newly adopted pet (courtesy of Bob Foshay Photography)
- The Million Mutt March, a walk to stomp out animal cruelty will kick off this year’s Woofstock
- Pet Contests (11 am – Grooviest Costume, 12 noon – Best Trick, 1 pm – Cutest Puppy)
- $20 micro-chipping and $5 ID tags from Oklahoma Alliance for Animals
- Pet related vendors and businesses
- Food Trucks
This year’s event will be kicked off by the Million Mutt March, a walk benefiting OAA to help provide funds to help stomp out animal cruelty! Attendees are invited to bring their own pets to enjoy a day in the park filled with fun activities, music, food in a pet friendly atmosphere, but most importantly to adopt homeless pets from area animal rescues and shelters.

The animals need your help!
We see them every week, stories of dogs, cats, horses and other animals injured or even killed at the hands of uncaring people. All too often, animal advocates and concerned citizens are outraged and want to help, but don’t know where to begin.
Oklahoma Alliance for Animals has begun work on an ambitious, long-range plan to address animal abuse and neglect. Beginning with communities in Northeast Oklahoma and ultimately spreading to counties across the state, OAA will offer resources, assistance and support to animal welfare and law enforcement organizations, as well as private citizens, in the fight to eliminate animal cruelty.
By raising funds for The Million Mutt March, OAA is able to help with the following:
- Temporarily care and house animals which have been subjected to animal cruelty and surrendered to OAA from law enforcement.
- Hold animals until they can legally be released or adopted.
- Provide medical treatment for the abused and neglected animals.
- Maintain a reward fund to post hefty rewards in hopes of someone providing information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the abuser(s)
- Provide “Free of charge” necropsies to law enforcement agencies in order for them to build a good case against the abuser(s)
- Provide partner rescue organizations and the general public with resources and information to help report animal cruelty and neglect.

Only 651 were reclaimed by their owners.

1,056 were pulled by dedicated area rescue groups.
The rest – nearly 7,500 – were destroyed because they didn’t have a home.
