Volunteers are absolutely essential to Oakland Animal Services. Not only do OAS volunteers benefit from a fun and rewarding experience, they also significantly improve the lives of the animals at the shelter. Spending time with the animals, increasing adoptions by helping citizens find the right animal to join their family and making new friends along the way, volunteers remain the driving force behind OAS.
Volunteers can train to work with:
- The staff to assist with administrative tasks
Volunteers learn skills for handling each type of animal and techniques for talking with the public about adoptions.
