Mission Statement

Lawton Animal Welfare’s (LAW) provides public health and safety for the citizens and animals of Lawton, Oklahoma. Our first focus is ensuring that the streets are safe by capturing animals running freely through the neighborhoods before they become injured or cause injury. The second focus is the enforcement of animal related ordinances that ensure the health and safety of all concerned as well as the needless over-breeding of animals within the City of Lawton. Once in our care, LAW is committed to providing humane care and protection of animals while they are in our facility.

VISION STATEMENT

LAW firmly believes that every animal’s life is valuable and that every effort should be taken to save each life through owner reclaims, adoption, or foster care placement through a rescue organization.  This is accomplished through our P.E.T.S. program: Promoting proper care of the animal; Educating the public on pet ownership and its responsibility, including the necessity of spaying and neutering their pet; Training staff, volunteers and the public on how to handle animals; and Saving each life that we can, ‘One Animal at a Time.’

LAW also believes that pet over-population can be reduced by spaying and neutering pets. We validate this belief by performing surgical spay and neutering on all animals that are adopted or rescued from the shelter and by informing owners that are reunited with intact animals of the value of the spay/neuter programs.

Oklahoma PET of the Week, Furry Friend Friday, 3 MAY 2019

Oklahoma PET of the Week, Furry Friend Friday, 3 MAY 2019

Oklahoma Pet of the Week, Furry Friend Friday, meet "ANGEL," 3 MAY 2019.

We discussed two separate items during today's Furry Friend Friday episode, other than our Special Fury Baby, Angel.

#1. I was able to express my sympathy and at the same time explain that Samuel Wotring, Age 24, had passed, and that his family had requested that people donate down at Lawton Animal Welfare's 'Pay it Forward' program, where we use specified money to pay for some of the animals adoptions. His family and friends donated enough money to allow us to SPONSOR, meaning his family and friends are PAYING 100% of EVERYONE who is up for ADOPTION tomorrow, during our Two Hearts Adoption Drive. This event will be held at Lawton Animal Shelter, 2104 SW 6th Street, from 10 am until 2 pm.

WE'LL SEE YA DOWN HERE
