Oakland Animal Services

Oakland Animal Services

Oakland Animal Services (OAS) is a division of the Oakland police department and is Oakland’s only “open admissions” shelter, accepting all of Oakland’s homeless, injured, orphaned, unwanted, lost, abandoned and mistreated animals, regardless of age, breed, temperament or medical condition.

OAS staff provides critical services for the community, sheltering thousands of Oakland’s stray dogs and other animals each year and responding to animal-related calls for service in Oakland. They are a city agency that proudly provides public safety and animal welfare services as well as human health and social services. OAS serves the community’s residents, and promotes responsible pet ownership and humane care.

With the assistance of a dedicated group of volunteers and the support of nonprofit Friends of Oakland Animal Services, OAS cares for more than 5,000 animals each year.

OAS is excited to be a part of the Human Animal Support Services (HASS) coalition as a Tier 1 pilot shelter.
