07/29/2021

Introducing Sass and Sis! These sweet sisters were also mama cats at the same time, raising all of those kitten cousins to independence. Now it's time for Sass and Sis (still youngsters themselves) to enjoy their retirement from motherhood.

This sweet as pie pair can be both supportive and competitive (like any siblings!) and are looking for a quiet home to let them settle into their routines in their own time.

Through August, we're reducing fees and cats are 2-for-1, so you can bring home both Sass and Sis for $20! That's a nice head start on their treat and toy fund.

To meet Sass and Sis, stop by during our open adoption hours on Thursday nights from 5 to 7 p.m. or apply to meet them by appointment.

Hi! I'm Panda! I have a little secret to share with you - I'm not *actually* a panda, I'm a rabbit. But the humans thought I looked a little like a panda, so that's how I got my name. I will take up much less space in your home than an actual panda, which is probably a good thing!

I really like my foster family, even the dog, if you can believe that, but I'm ready for my forever home. Could it be with you? Tell the humans you want to meet me, Panda!

Peanut butter and jelly. Thelma and Louise. Yogi and Boo Boo. These are only some of the iconic pairs in the world. How about adding a kitten pair to your life?

As of this posting, OAS has a dozen bonded kitten pairs ready for adoption! You may be thinking "But I only want one kitten," and we're here to tell you why kittens are better in bonded pairs!

1) Double the fun!

2) They keep each other company when you can't be with them 24x7

3) They give each other confidence (this can be really important with shyer kittens)

4) Much higher chance of adorable cuddle puddles

5) A buddy to play with, chase, and exercise

6) Healthier, happier, cats!

Check out all of our bonded pairs on our website and apply to meet your favorite duo!

Recently, OAS volunteer (and FOAS board member) Lindsay cut short her run to help a pet bunny who'd been released "into the wild." Lindsay and her husband (who picked her and the bunny up to get them to the shelter) were able to save this bunny (🐇yay!) but it's a good reminder that rabbits who've been raised as pets are not equipped to live in the wild, and letting them run free is setting them up for hardship and likely death.

If you are no longer able to care for your pet, please bring them to Oakland Animal Services (if you live in Oakland) or your local animal shelter for care and rehoming.

It's $5 Friday! Can you help us kick this beautiful summer weekend off by donating just $5 to Friends of OAS??

Sure, spend $5 on yourself this weekend--get a gallon of gas, order an iced latte (the medium-sized one), add some avocado on the side. And kick $5 more over to FOAS, so that we can continue funding lifesaving programs and services for the hundreds of dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, and other animals in need who arrive at our shelter every single month.

Let's get this $5 Friday party started! Donate now: oaklandsanimals.org/donate

Ann Dunn shares why helping is much easier than re-homing

We're super excited about how well our participation in the Human Animal Support Services program is going so far. Check out this blog post from Maddie's Fund for an interview with Oakland Animal Services Director Ann Dunn about how the program helps us keep animals in their homes and out of the shelter.

Hi there! I'm reaching out for a county-owned high-kill shelter in Modesto- they have 20 or so pit mixes/bigger dogs right now that are "red-listed" and scheduled to be euthanized soon. Does your rescue have any availability for another dog? I can arrange transportation and at least $300 in donations! I can also get you their breeds, weights, behavior, ages, ID numbers, videos for many of the dogs and hopefully any other information you need. You can reach me here, at [email protected] or any time at 303.681.8152 One or two of the dogs are labeled as “highly aggressive” by the shelter, but numerous volunteers have stated that they’ve only been classified as such because they're too scared to interact with people (they’ve never bitten, barked or even growled at staff). Here’s a link to their current “red” and “yellow” dogs. http://www.stanislausanimalservices.com/atrisk/adopt-dogs.shtm?color=red&sort=orderByIntakeDate If you'd like more information on the shelter, here is their instagram account, which is run by their volunteers and has a lot of information and videos. Some of the posts have comments of "pledges" which are donations that people pledge to the rescue or adopter of a specific dog (those would be in addition to the $300 above!). https://www.instagram.com/stanislaus_s Thank you so much!

Tried to stop this man from killing his dog. I think She was a female cattle dog dark grey in color she was very sweet ( He did not have a leash for her ) she started walking up to our dogs that is when he attacked her slamming her to the ground holding her with one arm while punching her along her sides and spinal area, repeatedly with his other fist while she looked up at him crying and yelping in pain. He did not even have a leash for her. This occurred at the redwood regional park cascades fountain area by children playground. He would not stop beating her even as I was running up to him screaming in horror for him to please stop! He kept repeatedly threatening my life and calling me names, would not stop. He said that it is perfectly legal for him to beat his dog as punishment. Animal Control and police never showed up for me. So I made report with district attorney office. I sent video of him where he admits to hurting his dog. The extreme violence he was inflicting on this little cattle dog was extremely disturbing I am scared what he does to her when he is alone. He is tall man looks a bit disheveled and maybe on drugs, long medium length hair.
Thanks for letting us take Jake, (Boba Jake, Dr Leisure) home! He's a great new member of the family.
