If you've lost an animal in or around Oakland:
You should immediately come to the Oakland Animal Services shelter at 1101 29th Ave. to fill out a lost animal report and look for your animal.
If you've found an animal:
The law requires that you report any stray dog or cat that you find in Oakland to the Oakland Police Department’s Animal Services at (510) 535-5602 or in person at 1101 29th Ave. during our open business hours.
When reporting, provide a description of the animal along with any identification tag it is wearing.
If you decide to keep the animal in your home, rather than bringing it to the Oakland Animal Services shelter, you must actively search for the animal’s owner for at least two weeks. This includes placing ads in local classifieds and posting flyers in the area the dog or cat was found.
