Oakland Animal Services thanks the Maddie’s Fund for their support! The Foundation supported OAS through a grant and through funds raised in their first annual Maddie’s Matchmaker Adoptathon in 2010. OAS participated in the Adoptathon and adopted 132 animals in just two days! This event encouraged us to find new ways to increase our adoption numbers. For example, OAS will have an adoptathon this weekend for 25 small dogs for $25 each! We are expecting a big turnout and homes for many of our little dogs who have been waiting for homes for weeks! OAS also has a free “Wise Whiskers” program to adopt senior cats for no fee!
Maddie’s has also encouraged and supported OAS to evaluate its data on an annual basis. This data is now available here.
