Happy Tails

We love to hear happy adoption stories! We share your stories on our website, Facebook, Instagram, and other communications, where they can inspire more people to adopt, volunteer, or care about animal welfare. We'd love to hear about your experience at our Oakland and Dublin locations on Yelp, too.

Volunteer Falls in Love with Dog & Adopts

Sep 25, 2023
"Mr. Chicken Wiggles has kept his name, with all of the positive associations he has with it. We look forward to East Bay SPCA training classes so he can gently learn to be positively effective at whatever job he has set out to do. He loves his doggie pool and water! He has made friends with the doggies in the neighboring backyards and can play ball forever. We are enjoying every minute of being together and falling more and more in love with this divinely majestic beast." - Brenda, adopter

Mushroom the Cat Finds his Home

Sep 22, 2023
"Mushroom has been such a fantastic companion and baby for our household. He adjusted quickly when we brought him home for the first time. He loves playing, cuddling, and exploring different nooks and corners of our apartment. He loves to climb his cat tower and neighbor watch. He loves taking long naps, either on his tower or our couch. He is a very social, calm, and curious cat. We love him so much and are so happy that he's part of our family!" - Danica, Adopter

"Goose is a big, loving fluff ball. He warms up quickly to people and is just the sweetest ball of love. I am so lucky to have him in my life. He is incredibly loved and very spoiled!" - Felicia, Goose's adopter

Billie Finds New Lease on Life

Sep 18, 2023
"Billie has grown so much. She loves people, loves going outside, and thrives off of routine. Watching her learn to play with my small senior chi-weenie was one of my favorite things. She's so goofy and loves laying out in the sun outside on her cot. We are so lucky that she became part of our family. She is such a good girl. I'm so proud of how far she has come, and I know the loving staff at East Bay SPCA would be too." -Claire, Adopter
