Bouncy kittens and puppies along with older dogs and cats will be available for adoption at Berkeley Humane’s Bark (& Meow) Around the Block event! The adoptable pets will be vaccinated, microchipped, and ready to go home with their new families. 

Adoptions are in-person, outdoors, and first-come, first served, so arrive early for your chance to meet your furry soulmate!

All safety protocols, mandatory masks, and latest guidance from the City of Berkeley, County of Alameda, and CDC will be strictly enforced at this event.

Please note: Our Mobile Adoption Center will be at our Adoption Center for the event, not at the Thrift Shop as it usually is on Saturdays.

~50 dogs & cats looking fur love at this adopt-a-thon!
