Thinking of adopting a new family member soon? Would it sweeten the pot if you could adopt for free? Join Oakland Animal Services the weekend of May 30-31 for Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days, a nationwide adoption event to place our cats and dogs into qualified homes. The goal this year is to find great homes for all of our adoptable animals. Adoption fees are waived all weekend for cats and dogs going to qualified homes.
OAS will have special extended hours during Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days:
Saturday, May 30: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Sunday, May 31: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Animals will be adopted on a first-come, first-served basis during the event and may not be placed on “hold.” Standard adoption criteria apply.
Potential adopters are encouraged to pre-qualify by filling out an adoption application ahead of time. To pre-qualify for adoptions, visit Oakland Animal Services with all the required documentation on Thursday, May 28, 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. or Friday, May 29, 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. For information on adoption requirements, go to: http://oaklandanimalservices.
Note that not all available animals are listed online. While online listings will be kept as up to date as possible, there may be delays in updating information, so we suggest that you have a few options selected for adoption visits.
About Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days
Thanks to Maddie, a sweet Miniature Schnauzer who brought her owners tremendous joy, the non-profit organization Maddie’s Fund® is proud to present the 2015 Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days, a free adoption event geared toward saving companion animals in Alameda County.
Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days is a two-day, fee-waived collaboration of countless people trying to save the lives of shelter animals, and testament to what can be done when people rally for a common cause. For each pet adopted, Maddie’s Fund gives participating shelters from $200 to $2,500. This funding enables shelters and rescue groups to save and treat more animals throughout the year, all thanks to the love and inspiration of one little dog, Maddie.
