Join us for our Dog Days of Summer Dog Adoption Event on Saturday June 19 from 11am to 2pm! Adoption fees for dogs adopted during the event will be $25 (excluding any applicable dog licensing fees).
Check out this page to see the dogs who will be at the event. Note that this page is updated frequently so we encourage you to check it the night before the event to see which dogs are still available for adoption, Not all foster dogs will be present at the event. Foster dogs confirmed to be attending the event are: Donnie, Eliza, Fontine, Lucky, James, Camila, and Kash. All dogs without a “fostered” ribbon will be at the event.
- Be sure to bring a photo ID, as well as a form of payment for the adoption fee (Cash, Check, or Visa/Mastercard)
- At the event, one of our staff or volunteers will speak with you to help matchmake you with an appropriate dog(s)
- A volunteer will then introduce you to the dog(s) who may be a good fit. You may meet up to 2 dogs, for up to 15 minutes each
- If you have a resident dog(s) at home, you must bring your resident dog(s) to meet the new dog
- Please bring an additional person to stay with your dog either in your vehicle, or somewhere nearby outside the shelter. Due to the number of dogs at the shelter, your dog may not be brought into the shelter until you are ready to adopt a dog, at which time shelter staff will conduct a dog-to-dog introduction
- Note that we cannot hold dogs for any reason. For example:
- If you do not move forward with adoption after meeting a dog, another person at the event may ask to meet the dog and the dog may be adopted by them
- If you have a resident dog(s), we cannot hold a dog while waiting for you to bring your resident dog(s) to the shelter
- If you adopt a dog, you should be prepared to take the dog home with you on the same day as we cannot hold the dog for you at the shelter
- All adoption requirements as listed here apply. All children 12 yrs and under must be present to meet the dog you are adopting
We look forward to seeing on June 19! Our shelter is located at 1101 29th Ave, Oakland.
