Give a Wag! Gives to Oakdale Shelters

City of Oakdale Animal Shelter is an animal shelter in Oakdale that takes in both stray animals and pets whose owners are no longer able to care for them. The shelter then keeps the animals in a safe environment until new homes can be found for them through adoption. As part of its program, the shelter helps with spaying and neutering costs, initial veterinary checkups, and initial vaccinations, which means that those looking to adopt a shelter animal can benefit from reduced costs. The shelter has been running since 1974, and over the decades has saved the lives of many dogs, cats, and other small animals.

The mission of the Oakdale Shelter Pet Alliance animal shelter is to save and improve the lives of homeless pets in the local area. This includes unplanned litters of puppies and kittens as well as adult pets. The shelter runs a range of programs in relation to the health of the animals including subsidized neutering and spaying programs. In addition to helping potential new owners with costs, the shelter also offers a comprehensive educational program to help those who may be new to pet ownership. The shelter, which is a nonprofit organization, was founded in 2004 and since that time has helped many homeless animals to find loving homes.

The Animal Shelter to Riverbank and Oakdale, or ASTRO, is a dedicated nonprofit organization that has been running since 2012. The shelter volunteers and staff work hard to save and improve the lives of dogs, cats, and other homeless animals. They work with foster carers and fundraisers to raise money and provide care for the animals that are rescued. Of course, the ultimate aim is to find a long-term home and family for the pets through adoption and the shelter runs a range of events over the course of the year to encourage this.
