It’s that time of year! Mark your calendars for Woofstock 2021, 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 18, 2021 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Riverwalk Crossing in Jenks, OK and will be promoted heavily through 92.9 The Drive, 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 organizations to participate in decorating their booth/canopy in the theme of the event. The grooviest booth wins a cash prize of $500!
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.

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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 Heartworm.
- 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.
- The organization must immediately remove any animal that presents aggressive behavior.
- 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.
- 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.
- Volunteers and staff must be easily identifiable, e.g. wear shirts with their individual group’s name and logo, name tags, etc.
- 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.
- Clean up after the animals and ensure your booth area is free of trash and pet waste prior to leaving the event.
- Any injury to rescue animals or volunteers or to members of the public or their animals, must be reported to OAA representative immediately.
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.
