Come to any of our two facilities (Oakland or Dublin) to visit with our cats and dogs looking for a new home. Be prepared to spend quality time meeting your new companion and speaking with our Animal Care Associates about the cat or dog you select. Visit our Adoption Process page to find out what you should bring when you visit and other details.
Finding a new home for your pet can be an emotional and difficult decision. Learn the options so you can make sure your pet’s next home is the right one. East Bay SPCA accepts cats and dogs from individuals who can no longer care for them. Our ability to take in dogs and cats changes continuously. Find out more about rehoming a pet.
Visit our Lost/Found/Stray Pets page to see if someone has turned in your pet to East Bay SPCA. If not:
- Look around your neighborhood and talk with your neighbors.
- Search when it is quiet and use their name when calling your pet. Your pet may be hiding, hurt or frightened, so look under bushes and other such objects.
- Put up posters and distribute flyers with a photo and description of your pet. Give enough information to describe your pet and where it was lost, but don’t give them every bit of information.
- Visit Oakland Animal Services or your local animal control agency and look at the animals to see if your pet has been impounded. Oakland Animal Services holds strays for a certain period of time. File a lost pet report and go back daily for several weeks to see if your pet turns up.
Visit our Lost/Found/Stray Pets page. If you have taken in a lost cat or dog, thank you for getting him or her off the street. Contact Oakland Animal Services or your local animal control agency and file a found dog or cat report. You can provide care for that animal until their owner contacts the agency. If you have found a cat/kitten, view our resources on stray cats, feral cats, and kittens.
We have found that “no-kill” has come to mean so many different things. As such, we choose not to use that term to describe our facilities or policies. The animals that are accepted into our adoption program are kept, cared for, fed, and socialized and/or trained as long as they remain adoptable, i.e. healthy and sociable. There is no time limit for their stay. Animals are euthanized if they are too aggressive to be safely placed in a home or too ill to be rehabilitated.
