Rottie rescue by animal control officers at Oakland Animal Services!

A rescue story straight from one of our Animal Control Officers! We are grateful for the life saving work our officers perform in the field. And thankfully a happy ending for all! Thank you again Officer Mitchell and Officer Lopez!
👇
Posted • .mamabear Dispatch called stating a mechanic shop had two dogs trapped surrounded by water behind their facility. Officer Mitchell (myself) and partner (Officer Lopez) promptly responded. When we arrived on scene a family was frantically staring down into the canal. They had just found their dogs they had been searching for all night and were helplessly watching them drown. Both had been trapped in the canal, badly flooded by the storm. The original party stated they were there most of the night. The dogs were exhausted from swimming and frantically gripping, (to the point of their paws bleeding) onto the only available relief from swimming available. Officer Lopez quickly grabbed bolt cutters and we worked on cutting the chain to gain access. Once we were able to open the fencing I climbed down into the canal with a control pole. In these situations a scared dog may bite and this was the safest option as the dogs kept falling back into the water and did not have much energy left in them. Quickly the first dog was looped and lifted from the water. The dog owner and Officer Lopez assisted in pulling the first dog up the canal wall. She then took the dog to dry and warm up. Fire then arrived on scene to assist. The second dog had fallen back into the water but I was quickly able to loop him. Fire and the dog owner assisted in lifting her out of the canal. Thankfully fire assisted because I couldn’t pull myself out of the canal. The family was over-joyed their dogs were safe and everyone returned home.

01/21/2023

Lunar New Year celebrations can be a frightening time for animals, when the loud sounds of firecrackers and fireworks often sends pets scurrying out of the house or yard in search of security or shelter. Oakland Animal Services reminds all animal owners that they can save themselves and their pets a tremendous amount of heartache and anxiety by keeping the animals comfortable during Lunar New Year celebrations:

🎆Keep pets indoors and at home; they will be happier and not tempted to escape from loud sounds.
🎆If your dog is crate-trained, put him in his crate covered with a blanket to make him feel secure.
🎆Create a peaceful environment in your home: play soothing music and lower the blinds to block outside sights and sounds.
🎆Keep pets away from flames, matches and lighter fluid.
🎆Even if your pet is indoors with you, double-check yard gates and doors to prevent an escape.
🎆Make certain pets are wearing identification that includes the name and current telephone number of the owner. Confirm that your pet’s microchip information is up to date.

Anyone who loses an animal in Oakland should visit the shelter’s Found Animals webpage as well as visiting in person during open hours. The shelter is located at 1101 29th Ave, Oakland, CA 94601.

We pulled up our adoptable dogs page to decide who to spotlight today, and well, the first row kind of speaks for itself because those are three of the most interesting canine faces we've seen in a long time. Chex might actually be part Gremlin. Gus looks like the picture you see in the dictionary under the phrase "hangdog face." And Berkeley, well, Berkeley looks like you've done something he's entirely displeased with and he's going to tell you he's not mad, he's just disappointed.

Anyway, check out our adoptable dogs page to see all our amazing available pups, and stop by to meet them this weekend at Oakland Animal Services, Saturday and Sunday noon to 3, no appointment needed!

Handsome Kristoff is looking for his Anna - maybe it's you?

Update: ADOPTED!

When you look up Jarvis in the dictionary, you might find the following terms apply: Distinguished. Curious. Resilient. Social.

All of these words do define 8 year old Jarvis. He came into our care with extensive injuries, and thanks to veterinary care and recovery time in a loving foster home, he's ready for his forever home. Despite rough times recently, Jarvis couldn't be more loving and forgiving!

Jarvis has earned a low-risk indoor life for his golden years, so we'll need him to be an indoor only cat. If you'd like to meet gentleman Jarvis, just stop by Oakland Animal Services during our open adoption hours: Thursdays noon-7 and Friday-Sunday noon-3, no appointment needed.

We had a couple days of rest but we are back at it with extended adoption hours today, Thursday January 19 from noon to 7! If you're looking for the mostly highly experienced cuddle buddies, we've got two of them on call from their nearby foster homes to meet interested adopters. Dijon and Sonja are expert loungers looking for a comfy chair to call their own.

You can also meet all our shelter-resident adoptable dogs today, or stop by to learn more about our amazing dog fostering program.

We're at 1101 29th Avenue in Oakland - we'll be waiting!

While we're celebrating the unparalleled success of our recent 50+ Dogs in 5 Days event, we're still looking for forever homes for these four very special dogs, who are our longest-term residents. All four are in loving foster homes, but they're ready for forever homes - maybe it's with you? And if it's not with you, how about working some of the same magic you worked with our big event and telling everyone you know about these amazing pups!

Check out these profiles of Poinsettia, Paloma, Mary Jane, and Sonja to learn more about them. Since they are in foster homes, they're available to meet by appointment.

Update: adopted!

Dogs dogs dogs dogs dogs. That's all ANYONE talked about on OAS Facebook lately, and Ginu and Grammy are, frankly, ready to change the subject. How about cats cats cats cats cats? Or, to be more specific, two awesome tabby gals who are looking for their new home!

Despite her senior-sounding name, Grammy is a young adult, as is her more confident buddy Ginu. Grammy might hide under her blanket or play keepaway when you first visit her, but once she decides to pause for pets, she's an absolute purr machine. Ginu will hang out in the open and wait for attention, serving as the welcoming committee for this bonded pair.

As a bonded pair, we'll only adopt Grammy & Ginu together. Meet them at Oakland Animal Services during our open adoption hours: Thursdays noon-7 and Friday-Sunday noon-3, no appointment needed.

A Special Thank You from OAS Director, Ann Dunn

Wow, this is a very different message than the one I sent last week. At that point, when the shelter was absolutely packed, and big dogs were doubled up, I was hoping against hope that we could get 50 big dogs adopted. We needed this community to step up, and boy did that happen in a massive way.

We’ve just wrapped up our adoption event after having sent 90 big dogs home in just five days, as well as 14 small dogs, 19 cats, 3 bunnies, and 3 guinea pigs.

I can speak for the entire team at Oakland Animal Services (OAS) to say we are overwhelmed with joy at this outpouring of support!

Since I became OAS Director in early 2020, your support of Friends of Oakland Animal Services has enabled us to launch the foster program for big dogs, as well as to greatly expand our adoption program. These two changes more than any others have made it possible for OAS to decrease dog euthanasia by nearly 70%.

As dog intake has increased so dramatically in the last year, FOAS has really gone out on a financial limb to give OAS the resources we need to bring on two additional full-time people to support the foster and adoption programs. As they come on board over the next month, we’ll be able to save even more dogs.

As you can see, the partnership between OAS and FOAS is powerful! I hope you will consider donating to help make these lifesaving programs sustainable in 2023 and beyond.

On behalf of the entire OAS team, THANK YOU for all that your support makes possible!

With much gratitude,
Ann Dunn
Director, Oakland Animal Services

Not only did we hit our ambitious goal of adopting out 50 Dogs in 5 Days, we almost doubled that number. Thanks to our greater Oakland community, 90 dogs have spent their last night in the shelter and are settling into cushy blankets and soft beds in their forever homes.

We didn't stop at just 90 big dogs, we also found homes for 14 small dogs (under 25 lbs), 19 cats & kittens, 3 rabbits, and 3 guinea pigs over the last 5 days. Not only did we find lots of forever homes, we had a huge number of new applications for our dog fostering program, so now we'll start to go through those and add you to our foster family!

This was a tremendous team effort and we couldn't have done it without you - the community - stepping up to help us help these animals!

50 Dogs in 5 Days Final Video Update

Drum roll please ... here we have the final video update from our amazing 50+ Dogs in 5 Days event at Oakland Animal Services.

You all showed up in the rain and the wind (and even a little bit of sunshine) and gave your love to Oakland's big dogs and thanks to you, 90 of these dogs have found their new homes! That's 90 dogs who've spent their last night in a shelter and are snuggling up and getting comfy in their new homes.

Monday January 16 is the last day of our 50+ Dogs in 5 Days event. While we send all these dogs out to forever homes, we also set them up for success. Here's what you get with a dog adopted from OAS this weekend!

✅Your dog will be microchipped! Registered microchips substantially increase the chances of a fast and safe reunion if your dog goes missing. We'll give you the microchip details, all you need to do is call and have your contact information linked, then your dog can be scanned at most vets and shelters to facilitate a reunion.
✅Your new dog will be up to date on its vaccines! While we encourage adopters to establish care with a veterinarian soon, this will buy you some breathing room to find the right vet before your dog will need boosters.
✅Your dog will be spayed or neutered. Spayed and neutered dogs have lower risk for many health conditions and improved behavioral characteristics. And no risk of puppies!
✅You'll get a discount on supplies & food at Pet Food Express! This regional pet store is a big supporter of animal rescue organizations and they're ready to support you and your new family member, too!
✅You'll receive a month of free training from GoodPup! This positive reinforcement training will help you bond with your new dog and help them be the best family member they can be!
✅A lifetime of love and companionship!

All this with a waived adoption fee!

So what are you waiting for? Stop on by Oakland Animal Services today - our final day with special extended adoption hours - noon to 5 pm with no appointment required. Check out the deets on all our dogs, scope out your faves and come on down!

Great work, Oakland Animal Services, getting 89 dogs adopted in 5 days!!! Best wishes to all the dogs and their new families. Thank you OAS!
Look at all of these dashing seniors! 😍

We love the way Oakland Animal Services used our Senior Pet Canva Templates and wish them nothing but the best in finding their furr-ever homes. ❤️

I fostered this little nugget (named Hamlet) for the last week and he was adopted yesterday at Oakland Animal Services !!!! 💖🎉🎉🎉I am so proud and grateful for the amazing staff and volunteers of Oakland Animal Services and all they do for the pets & strays of the East Bay. OAS has sent over 50 dogs to their Fuuurrever homes in the past few days! 🐾Fostering saves lives yall! I am also starting a new policy that if you are a pack member and bring home a Foster dog from any rescue (for a week or more) I will give you a Free pack walk once a month (for every month you foster for a week of more, limit up to 6 free walks a year). Fostering frees up space at the shelter for other incoming pups & helps make the foster more adoptable. So here's another reason to start fostering today😍
Head on over to Oakland Animal Services (OAS) this week to adopt a big dog! Adoption hours are extended this week to help get at least 50 big dogs adopted by Monday, January 16. Adoption hours this Friday through Monday are 12pm to 5pm. Additionally, adoption fees for big dogs are waived during this special adoption event!

OAS is Oakland’s only open admission shelter, helping over 6,500 homeless, lost and injured animals annually. Overcrowding has become an epidemic for shelters across the country, and in Oakland, dog intake has been increasing. Last year, OAS took in 555 more dogs compared to the same period in 2021.

There is now an urgent need to find a home for at least 50 big dogs! Pictured here are just a few dogs (Bon Jovi - top left, Kismet - top right, and Redford - bottom left) who are available for adoption at OAS. Check out the OAS website to see all dogs available for adoption, and head on over during open adoption hours to adopt a dog today!

Do you live in the Oakland area and need a big ol' smooch from a big ol' pup? Consider going to Oakland Animal Services to adopt one of their big dogs.
SOS! When you see dogs on Cat Town’s social media, you KNOW it’s urgent. Our city shelter Oakland Animal Services needs your help. After a huge spike in dog intake, they have no more room for incoming dogs. Starting next week, they may need to euthanize dogs for lack of space — but they are asking for the community to step up to help!

The shelter’s goal is to get 50 big dogs adopted by this Monday, January 16. They’re extending their adoption hours this Thursday 12-7pm and Friday to Monday 12-5pm to make that happen.

YOU can help in three powerful ways:
1. Adopt a big dog — www.oaklandanimalservices.org/adopt/dogs
2. Foster a big dog — www.oaklandanimalservices.org/how-to-help/fostering-animals/
3. Spread the news — add posts and stories from Oakland Animal Services to your feed, and talk to people you know who might be able to adopt or foster.

The shelter has already worked so hard to make as much space for incoming animals as possible, including rolling out new programs and stretching their limited resources. Because of their dedication, the euthanasia rate for shelter dogs is the lowest it’s ever been. Let’s make sure it stays that way.

Please join us in stepping up for Oakland’s dogs, and showing Oakland’s shelter some love, to meet this goal!
Oakland Animal Services needs help! Read on for more:

Can you help us find new homes for 50 dogs in 5 days? Because that’s what we need to open up room in our shelter and foster program to enable us to continue taking in the dogs that arrive in our care every single day!

Oakland Animal Services is Oakland’s only open admission shelter, helping over 6,500 homeless, lost and injured animals annually. Since 2020, OAS has undertaken a significant restructuring to save more shelter animals’ lives. By focusing on returning lost pets, increasing adoptions, expanding foster programs and supporting people in keeping their pets, OAS has decreased euthanasia for dogs by 67% and has not had to euthanize dogs for space since 2019.

Overcrowding has become an epidemic for shelters across the country, and in Oakland dog intake has been increasing over several months. In 2022, OAS took in 555 more dogs compared to the same period in 2021. There is now an urgent need to find 50 big dogs a home by Monday, January 16, 2022.

OAS is asking the community to save an animal’s life by adopting a dog. Those who want to help but cannot adopt are encouraged to foster a pet, which will help address the immediate crowding crisis.

“The changes we have made in the last three years, as well as the tremendous community support that we have received, has made it possible to achieve the lowest euthanasia rate for dogs in OAS’s history in 2022. We’re asking for people to step up in a big way to help our dogs now,” said Ann Dunn, Director of Oakland Animal Services.

We’ll be having extended adoption hours from Thursday through Monday, where you can stop by without an appointment and head home with your new dog!

Check out all our available dogs at https://www.oaklandanimalservices.org/adopt/dogs/ and pick out your favorites to meet. And, if you’re not in a position to adopt, please help us to spread the word to your networks – we can’t do this without the support of all of our community!

Extended adoption hours:

Thursday 1/12 noon-7
Friday 1/13 noon-5
Saturday 1/14 noon-5
Sunday 1/15 noon-5
Monday 1/16 noon-5

Head to their facility if you’re looking to adopt OR share this post to help their animals find a home! ❤️
Big dogs need to be adopted or sheltered ASAP. If you have any availability to help big dogs please reach out to OAS
Oakland Animal Services needs your help, our shelters are full and in need of support. Please help spread the word!
Question - If someone severely neglected their dogs and had them taken away, why would they be allowed to have a dog again?

Abusers don't change. It's not fair to the animals.
We’d like to give a big thank you to all of the families who adopted pets from us during the month of December! 41 pets found new homes!

Congrats to dogs: Bob, Bart, Sophie (now Cleo), Otis, Chamomile (now Chloe), Ruda, R***r, Louie, Jazz, Penne (now Lo**ta), Amy, Bella, Warner, and Obi-wan, and a Shih Tzu who was adopted before he was named!

Congrats to cats & kittens: Mavis, Blu, Merry, Bright, Autumn, Wyatt, Nicholas, Chutney, Ralphie, Penelope, Frosty, JJ, Mia, Munchkin, Berry (now Sophia), Mistletoe, Eggnog, Kermit (now Sprinkles), Belle, Spruce, Poinsettia, an unnamed kitten, and two feral cats who found a working cat home!

Congrats to bunnies: Muffin, and Jar Jar Binks!

We would also like to share our gratitude to the following rescues and shelters who helped us save even more pets last month!

Tri-Valley Animal Rescue 18 cats/kittens, 6 dogs/pups
East Bay SPCA 13 cats/kittens, 11 dogs
Valley Humane Society 7 cats/kittens, 7 dogs
East Bay Rabbit Rescue 4 bunnies
Calpaws K9 Rescue 3 dogs

We appreciate you!

With Oakland's animal shelters once again at capacity, we're helping our friends at Oakland Animal Services find homes for as many animal friends as we can, including Sammy.

Sammy didn’t get her Christmas wish of finding her forever home before the new year but she is still very hopeful and waiting patiently, as she knows the person for her is out there somewhere. Might it be you? Sammy is currently at Oakland Animal Services and would love to be in a foster or adoptive home instead!

Sammy is a sweet and mellow girl who would love to be your couch potato. She is content to spend most of her time chilling with you, or just hanging out on any comfy surface. Overall, she's an easygoing dog for a family that wants a chill, not-too-active pup.

This sweet girl doesn't get fazed by much (i.e. noise or lots of people in the home, or the vacuum cleaner). On walks she gets overwhelmed seeing other dogs so she would do best living in a quiet mellow neighborhood. She knows some basic cues already like “sit”, “down”, and “paw”.

Can you foster, or adopt, Sammy? Sammy is 10 years old and around 45 lbs. Oakland Animal Services is open for adoptions on Thursdays 12-7pm, and Fridays to Sundays 12-3pm. Check out their dog foster open house every Thursday from 12-7pm where you can drop by the shelter to learn more about fostering and if there’s a good fit, go home with a foster dog that day!
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU OAS!! I am in LOVE!!😍 I adopted Mimi (previously known as Garnet) on 10/17/2022. SHE rescued ME!! She's still going through adjusting to her new environment.. but she is such a sweet baby! ... and she deserves to be spoiled rotten!!
