JENKS — The Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks may be closed to the public due to the coronavirus pandemic, but that doesn't mean a few furry friends couldn't enjoy all the aquarium has to offer.

Four adoptable dogs form Jenks Animal Welfare to a field trip of a lifetime, exploring the Oklahoma aquarium last week.

City of Jenks Officials say that a Jenks police officer, a member of Jenks Public Works and two Jenks firefighters were able to take a much needed break in order to join the four puppies: Emmy, Jasmine, Ginger and Victor.

The dogs were about to tour the Sea Turtle exhibit, the Polynesian Reef, walk through the Shark Tunnel and look at the starfish! The four were about to sniff and walk around as much as they desired.

Officials say all adoptions are on hold at this time, due to the pandemic, however, they are still taking all inquiries.

If someone is interested in adoption or more information, they can call 918-299-6311 (option 8 for all inquiries) or email

Also, officials say that although the Oklahoma Aquarium is closed, they are still continuing their Unstoppable Science Series every day at 9:30 a.m. here, on the Oklahoma Aquarium Facebook page.
