Pipi and OAS volunteer

Volunteers are absolutely essential to Oakland Animal Services (OAS). As an OAS volunteer you will not only benefit from a rewarding and fun experience, but also have a significant impact on the lives of the animals and people in our community. Volunteers are indeed the driving force behind OAS.

OAS volunteers take on many different roles. For some volunteer positions, we provide the training required, while other volunteer positions require previous experience and an existing skillset. All volunteer positions do have minimum requirements to ensure that volunteers are an appropriate fit for the role.

We are so excited that you are considering volunteering at OAS!
