Every year, 1,000 or more dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens come through our doors. While in our care, we provide plenty of individualized attention, enrichment, medical and behavioral rehabilitation, and lots of love before connecting each animal with a well-matched home. Between the toy mice and fluffy balls for cats and the kongs, chews, and plushy toys for dogs, we certainly go through a lot of stuff! 


We greatly appreciate donations for our shelter animals, and well as for our Pet Food Pantry program. Thank you for your generous support, which enhances the lives of East Bay animals.
