For every pet with a happy home, there is an animal in a shelter waiting to be adopted. So today, we want you to meet Mya, a sweet 3-year-old female Husky who defied the odds after a car accident, thanks to surgery by the Oklahoma City Animal Welfare Division’s Angel Fund.

Mya arrived at the OCK animal shelter with a badly injured hip, and staffers suspected she’d been hit by a car and abandoned. After having surgery – paid for by donations through the shelter’s Angel Fund – the spunky pup went through rehabilitation, and today, is fully recovered from her trauma! Both leash- and house-trained, Mya is very affectionate and loves other dogs. Available for just $25, she’ll make a great pet for any lucky family.

The OKC Animal Welfare Division is the largest shelter in the state of Oklahoma, taking in around 30,000 homeless and unwanted animals each year. In addition to dogs and cats, the shelter houses and adopts pocket pets, livestock, herptiles, birds and rabbits. Oklahoma-area families interested in adopting a pet (like Mya!) or donating can visit the shelter seven days a week, or call 405-316-6018.
