Effective January 12, 2019, Oakland Animal Services (OAS) will implement more consistent hours for city residents looking for lost animals or seeking to add a four-legged member to their family.

As the new year begins, OAS will continue to be open six days per week, with hours aligned more closely to other Bay Area shelters:

  • Monday-Friday 3-6 p.m.
  • Saturday/Sunday1-5 p.m.; *closed Wednesday

The new schedule is more in keeping with industry standards – another move marking the great progress the shelter has made toward becoming an industry leader in the past four years.
