We have are lucky to have thriving adoption programs here at OAS for cats, rabbits and dogs that come to our facility. With a volunteer force of over 150 volunteers and many dedicated staff, we are able to care for, socialize and adopt dozens of animals each week. However, we often get many more animals into our facility than we are able to adopt out on our own. Luckily, we have great partner animal organizations in the community that take many of our animals to their adoption programs. Because we have such a strong community of organizations committed to animals, we are able to care for and adopt many many more animals than we would be able to on our own.
These win-win situations create the most positive result in a climate where spaying and neutering does not happen as regularly as it needs to. It is important to remember spaying and neutering is the most important measure that can be taken to prevent an overabundance of animals looking for homes. There are many options for spay and neuter in our community. For more information, check out the Berkeley Humane Society or East Bay SPCA .
