Each year, our shelter takes in thousands of homeless dogs, puppies, cats and kittens. To help reduce the overpopulation of pets in Oakland, Friends of Oakland Animal Services (FOAS) has launched a FREE spay/neuter program for dogs and cats (including feral cats). The program is open to residents of Oakland, CA.
The first FREE pet fix day will be on December 7. FOAS will be providing transportation round-trip from the the meeting point at OAS to the Fix Our Ferals surgery center in Richmond. Space is limited, and YOU MUST HAVE A CONFIRMED APPOINTMENT with us to participate.
This free service includes sterilization surgery, core vaccinations, microchipping and routine flea treatment. Here are the details:
** YOU MUST HAVE A CONFIRMED APPOINTMENT TO PARTICIPATE **
- To participate, complete this online form, and we will contact you if we are able to accommodate your pets:
- Your animal must be dropped off with FOAS staff, in the parking lot at Oakland Animal Services, 1101 29th Ave, between 6-7am on December 7.
- You must pick up your animal the same day, between 5:30 and 7:00pm. Animals not picked up will be considered abandoned, and impounded at the shelter. Fees may apply to redeem your pet.
- The program is open to dogs and cats, including feral cats, belonging to an Oakland resident. Minimum weight is 3 pounds. Maximum weight for this event is 60 pounds due to transport limitations.
