Oakland Animal Services does not provide veterinary care to the public. OAS will accept surrendered sick and injured animals, and each animal will be evaluated for possible medical treatment or humane euthanasia.
If your own animal is sick or injured please see the list of veterinarians in Oakland to locate the nearest clinic. If you have an after-hours emergency with your animal, contact VCA Bay Area Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Hospital at 14790 Washington Ave, San Leandro, CA, 510-483-7387.
If you have found a stray, sick or injured animal, you may bring the animal to the shelter during our hours of operation. If you have found an animal after hours and can transport it to the VCA Bay Area Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Hospital or another 24-hour veterinary care facility, please do so. Alternatively, call the police non-emergency line at 510-777-3333. You must stay on the line to speak with a dispatcher.
