Woofstock 2023 Rescue/Nonprofit Registration

It’s that time of year! Mark your calendars for Woofstock 2023, Oklahoma’s largest and grooviest pet adoption event and a day full of peace, love and pets!

The event will take place on Saturday, September 16, 2023 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Riverwalk Crossing in Jenks, OK and will be promoted heavily through KOTV, 92.9 The River, 98.5 The Bull, 106.9 KHITS, 99.5 Big Country, and AM 1170 Talk Radio. This will ensure lots of exposure for your rescue and your adoptable pets!

We are also asking all rescue/nonprofit organizations to participate in decorating their booth/canopy in the theme of the event. The grooviest booth wins a cash prize of $500! Prizes for second and third place, too.

Participation in the event is totally free for nonprofits! Canopies for your booth space are necessary for shade. If you need us to rent one for you, they are $75 and can be paid for at the end of the registration form. This includes a table and two chairs too. Please note that if you don’t process your $75 payment at the time of registration submission, your canopy will not be reserved.

Read the Group Adoption Event Standards and complete the below Woofstock registration form. Please submit by Friday, September 8. Questions? Email jamee@animalallianceok.org.

Group Adoption Event Standards

To make adoption events as successful as possible and to minimize liability exposure for each organization who participates in adoption events, the following Group Adoption Event Standards have been developed. In order to participate, each organization must agree to adhere to the following standards.

  1. You certify your organization is a registered 501(c)(3) organization or municipal shelter, primarily concerned with animal welfare and does not engage in breeding animals.
  2. Because events such as Woofstock are organized to help curb the pet overpopulation problem in Oklahoma, we ask that all dogs or cats offered for adoption be rescued from Oklahoma, preferably from the Green Country area. 
  3. The organization must comply with the following animal care requirements:
    • All dogs and cats must be spayed or neutered (unless determined by a veterinarian to be medically contraindicated).
    • All cats must be given a rabies vaccine and FVRCP vaccine, and be screened for FeLV/FIV.
    • All dogs must be given a rabies vaccine and DHLLP (or equivalent) vaccine, and be screened for heartworms.
    • All animals must be fed, housed, and exercised appropriately for their species.
    • The health and well-being of the animals is of utmost importance. No sick or injured animals should be present at an adoption event. Animals must be sufficiently healthy to withstand several hours at such an event.
    • It is usually hot at this event. Please keep that in mind when choosing which animals to bring and what precautions are needed to make sure they’re comfortable at this event.
  4. The organization must immediately remove any animal that presents aggressive behavior.
  5. The organization must bring the appropriate number of staff or volunteers.  As a guide, there should be at least two people to staff your information table and one volunteer per leashed dog.
  6. Bring all needed equipment and items to the adoption event, including a tent and banner, tables and chairs, crates and carriers, water bowls, water, food, treats, leashes, etc., unless specifically told that these items will be made available at the site.
  7. Volunteers and staff must be easily identifiable, e.g. wear shirts with their individual group’s name and logo, name tags, etc.
  8. Arrive on time and in plenty of time to set up prior to the beginning of the event and stay until the end of the event.
  9. Clean up after the animals and ensure your booth area is free of trash and pet waste prior to leaving the event.
  10. Any injury to rescue animals or volunteers or to members of the public or their animals, must be reported to OAA representative immediately.
  11. The organization must comply with any on-site directions or requests made by OAA or any Riverwalk representatives, which could include being asked to remove animals or leave entirely if deemed necessary.

Your cooperation in complying with these standards is essential in promoting the spirit of collaboration needed to create communities where healthy, adoptable animals are no longer euthanized simply because they don’t have homes.

*Please note that OAA reserves the final approval of your rescue registration. Submission of this form does not indicate immediate acceptance. You will be notified via email within 48-72 hours if your rescue is approved to attend.
