San Francisco Bay Area
The 9-county San Francisco Bay Area just may be the most dog-friendly region in the world. From the coastal counties of San Francisco, Marin, Sonoma
and San Mateo where you'll find beautiful beaches to the hip, urban vibe with lots of canine-accommodating amenities in Oakland and the East Bay
, this is the place!
The Bay Area is also your gateway to the beautiful wine country featuring Sonoma County
, Napa Valley
, and the Livermore Valley
, where everyone, two-legged and four, is welcome.
Head on over to Jack London Square in Oakland on July 28 from 10 am to 2 pm for the East Bay SPCA’s Adopt-a-thon 2019! The shelter hosts almost 30 local animal shelters and rescues. The goal: to raise awareness about the homeless animals in the community.
While you’re there, you can find vouchers for discounted microchips, giveaways from the Oakland A’s and a button-making station. You can also take home a cat, bird, dog, rat and more to grow your family! more »
