The Oakdale Shelter Pet Alliance is promoting Oakdale Animal Shelter pet adoptions with a “Freedom Fest” adoption special that began on July 1 and will continue through July 14. Kittens and cats will be available for $17.76 and dogs will be available for $25 (puppies are excluded from this special). The Oakdale Shelter Pet Alliance will pay for a portion of the fees associated with the adoption of the shelter pets, keeping the cost low for potential new owners. These fees include the pets’ spay/neuter, microchip and vaccinations.

Help celebrate shelter pet independence by giving a pet a loving new home. The Oakdale Animal Shelter on Liberini Avenue in Oakdale serves both Oakdale and Riverbank and is open daily from 9 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. For more information about adoptable pets, please call the animal shelter at 209-847-5625.

The Oakdale Shelter Pet Alliance is a non-profit organization founded in 2004 that has helped homeless pets in need at the Oakdale Animal Shelter which provides services for both Riverbank and Oakdale. Their mission as stated on their website is “Dedicated to saving and improving lives of homeless pets from Oakdale and Riverbank communities.”
