My story

I am in a foster home and not at the shelter. If you are interested in adopting, submit an adoption questionnaire by email. Learn more here

Jenga is a wonderfully wild and bouncy pup. He's a combination of both shy and playful, and is a loving puppy ready to find his family. Like all puppies will, he's in a stage of "mouthiness" and needs appropriate things to chew on (like toys!) and reminders of what not to chew (like shoes or toes!).

No cats, bunnies or rodents for Jenga - he has significant prey drive.

Jenga will thrive with an active family. He is patient and calm during car rides, great on leash, and responds very well when called. Catch up on his foster adventures on Instagram @dogisbond (he had a blast at the beach)!

If you can nurture this super happy pup with positive reinforcement training and plenty of adventures, submit an application to meet him! Click HERE to learn how to adopt.

Additional adoption info

Thank you for considering adopting a shelter pet! There are two ways to adopt:
1. Visit our shelter (1101 29th Ave) Saturday or Sunday from 12-3pm, when we are open for adoptions.
2. Use our online process as described at Adoptions are first-come-first-served. While we try our best to get back to everyone via our online process, sometimes it takes several days or a week or two, and the pet you are interested in may get adopted during our open adoption hours.

Please note that inquires submitted through this website about this pet may not receive an immediate response due to the large volume of inquires we receive. If you are interested in adopting this pet, please submit an adoption application to be considered.

Adoption requirements:
- You must be 18 years of age or older with a valid California driver’s license or other acceptable identification
- Never have had any cruelty convictions, animal control violations or broken any adoption contracts in the past
- Agree to and sign the “Statement of Adopter” on the adoption questionnaire which includes a waiver of liability
- Pay the adoption fees and applicable licensing fees. Fees include spay/neuter, vaccinations, and microchip
- All animals, including rabbits, must be spayed or neutered. If the pet you are interested in adopting is not yet spayed/neutered, a staff member will discuss next steps with you

Additional information for dog adopters:
- Other canines in the home must meet the new dog prior to adoption.
- Provide proof of home ownership or permission to have a dog from your landlord. We cannot hold the dog that you want to adopt while you try to meet this requirement.
- Agree to a home inspection if the dog is a large breed dog or dog that has been identified to need additional attention.
- Be aware of the Oakland and State Laws about dog ownership.

We do not place adoption holds on any animals.

More about this shelter

As the city of Oakland’s sole open-admissions animal shelter, Oakland Animal Services’ duties are as diverse as the community we serve. Operating on the leanest of budgets, Oakland Animal Services (OAS) operates the city’s animal control unit, enforcing animal welfare and public safety laws, provides care for stray and surrendered animals, supports lost pet searches and reunions, and facilitates the placement of homeless animals via public adoptions and coordination with transfer partners near and far. The needs of the community are great, but so are the results of a job well done: the enhancement of quality of life for humans and animals alike.
