This weekend a US Fish and Game Department employee came to visit the Shelter with her dog “Cooper” who she had adopted from the Oakland Animal Shelter in 2006. She trained “Cooper” as a detection dog to detect the transport of illegal wildlife. He was then accepted into the US Fish and Game Department detection program!

The Oakland Police Department’s Animal Services is sending two of their Animal Control Officers to Butte County to help evacuate and shelter small and large animals displaced by the many fires in the county. They will be stationed at a Red Cross shelter that is temporarily housing both people and their animals. The disaster quickly overwhelmed the capacity of the five Animal Control Officers that cover the region so the State Office of Emergency Service put out a call across the State for 20 Animal Control Officers.
The two Oakland Animal Control Officers, Troy Snell and Robby McKenna, will be leaving for Butte County on Friday morning in an Oakland Animal Control truck. They are scheduled to stay for three to four days. Adam Parascandola, Director of Oakland Animal Services, volunteered after Katrina rescuing animals and has talked with the Officers about what they might encounter.
East Bay Animal Advocates has been a huge help in providing care and obtaining placement for the nearly 500 baby chickens that we impounded in May! Animal Acres in Southern California has agreed to take 200 of them and East Bay Animal Advocates will transport them there on July 5th! Thank you! Please consider donating to East Bay Animal Advocates to help cover the cost of transporting these birds!
The Oakland Animal Shelter would like to thank Pet Food Express for all of their ongoing support! They have provided the Shelter with a wide range of assistance, including financial contributions to the Friends of the Oakland Animal Shelter through their innovative My Mutt’s program, discounts to adopters, lots of donations of food and supplies, and expert help from their wonderful staff. For example, Pet Food Express recently installed large, warehouse shelving in the Shelter’s garage area. This has made it possible for us to convert our current storage area to a room for rabbits and small animals!
We want to acknowledge owners Michael Levy and Mark Witriol for their incredible commitment to helping animal organizations in the community. Special thanks to their staff members, Mike Murray, who has helped us in so many ways and to John, from maintenance, who installed all the shelving (all by himself!) and even made a beautiful cage for our Shelter rabbit – Dusty (see below!)! Thank you!
WONDERFUL NEW SHELVING FROM PET FOOD EXPRESS!

Ten employees from the Nutro Dog Food Division of the Mars Company recently spent a day at the Shelter to create an outdoor exercise run for little dogs. Our little dogs can now spend the day outside in the sunshine when they aren’t in the “Smallville”. See the before and after photos below:
