Oakland Animal Services is Oakland’s only “open admissions” shelter: We accept all of Oakland’s homeless, injured, orphaned, unwanted, lost, abandoned and mistreated animals, regardless of age, breed, temperament or medical condition.
Our staff provides critical services to our community, sheltering thousands of Oakland’s stray animals each year and responding to animal-related calls for service in Oakland. We are a city agency that proudly provides public safety and animal welfare services as well as human health and social services. We are here to serve our community’s residents, and promote responsible pet ownership and humane care.
OAS is excited to be a part of the Human Animal Support Services (HASS) coalition as a Tier 1 pilot shelter.
