We are going to begin featuring some of our longest-term residents each week. You can see the list of these animals here. Please share this link with your friends/family to help us publicize these animals who are really ready to find a home! Here at Oakland Animal Services, we do not set a maximum amount of time for animals to stay with us. We understand that it can take extra time for some animals to find that right adopter. Our staff and volunteers do their best to make these animals as comfortable and as happy as possible while they are in the shelter, but it is always best to get them into a home. We depend on caring people, like you, to consider these long-term animals when looking for a companion. One of the benefits of adopting a longer-term resident is that these animals often are staff and volunteer favorites. They get to know the personalities of these animals extremely well and can tell you more about the animal than one that hasn’t been with us as long.
This is Boots, our longest term dog at the shelter. As you can see, he’s quite the ham!
