The Bay Area publication Bay Woof honored 1800 shelter volunteers, including OAS’s very own Kay Martin. Shelter volunteer coordinator Kelly Miott states:
Kay goes out of her way to help fellow volunteers and has a magic touch with pups who need a little extra TLC. She also spends countless hours outside the shelter running the Oakland Lost and Found Facebook page to reunite lost pets with their families, building relationships, and networking with rescue organizations, transporting pigeons and other wildlife, planning flight and ground transfers of animals to other agencies, and coordinating offsite adoption events. She is a superstar volunteer and a true champion for Oakland animals!
In 2017, OAS volunteer Caren Sutton was honored.
