The Friends of Oakland Animal Services (FOAS) is hiring for a position that combines two half-time roles. The Transfer Coordinator facilitates transfers from Oakland Animal Services (OAS), the city’s only open-admission shelter, to nonprofit adoption partners and other outside agencies. This person will oversee the OAS transfer program to include cultivating relations with partner shelters, selecting appropriate animals for transfer and maintaining communication internally and externally about animals being transferred.
The Dog Foster Coordinator is one of two employees responsible to place dogs in foster homes and provide necessary support to foster volunteers. Both roles focus primarily on large dogs who aren’t doing well in a stressful shelter environment, requiring experience working with dogs with behavioral challenges.
