What does a birthday party at the East Bay SPCA entail?
Our birthday party program is a compilation of a behind the scenes tour, two animal activities and animal meet and greets.
20 minutes of shelter enrichment as party guests arrive*
30 minutes behind the scenes tour
20 minutes for an animal-themed activity
20 minutes of animal interaction through meet and greets
30 minutes of time for cake & presents
*Please know that in order to ensure enough time for all activities the educator will start your party on time. If party guests arrive late, they may not be able to participate in the shelter enrichment activity at the beginning of the party.
Enrichment: It is important to us that the animals in our care are exposed to a variety of activities throughout the day in order to keep them both mentally and physically healthy. We have also found that our party guests enjoy doing something for the animals. The shelter enrichment activity will be chosen by the party coordinator the day of the party, based upon the needs of the shelter that day. Possible activities may include stuffing Kong’s for dogs or cats, distributing toys to the animals, making cat toys, shelter beautification, etc.

Dublin: Birthday parties are offered on Saturdays & Sundays from 10 am -12 noon or 2 pm – 4 pm each day.
Oakland: Birthday parties are offered on Saturdays & Sundays 3 pm – 5 pm. Morning parties are not available in Oakland at this time.
