Oakland Animal Services has been getting more and more Chihuahuas. The percentage of the dogs that are Chihuahuas at OAS is now 15%, up from less 2% just 10 years ago! In the last few months, OAS has sent almost 150 of these little dogs out of state where the breed is not as common in local shelters. Our goal is to try to place as many of these dogs in local homes as possible. We make them available in our Shelter and East Bay SPCA is working on finding ways to take more into their program. They recently created a new room for little dogs so they can take more from Bay Area Shelters to help address the large number of Chihuahuas in Oakland.
