SAPULPA, Okla. -- The Sapulpa Animal Shelter says it is at max capacity and it will have to euthanize dogs if adoptions aren't made this week.

Sapulpa Furry Friends is hosting a weekend adoption event Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. at the shelter, which is located at 515 East Fife Avenue.

All animals will be spayed or neutered and receive vaccinations before they go home. Those who adopt a dog will also receive a discount coupon toward their first vet visit to Advanced Care Veterinary Hospital in Sapulpa, a coupon for a free dog wash and a free behavioral training class. 

“Euthanasia is – unfortunately – a sad reality for the animals,” says Sapulpa Furry Friends President Jessica Thorne. “The small shelter can quickly become overcapacity as dogs sit, waiting to be adopted, while more and more strays come in, filling up the space. These weekend adoption events allow people who work during the week to come meet the adoptable animals and hopefully save their lives.” 

Those interested in adopting a dog can also visit the shelter Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
