The East Bay SPCA is look for people who can take large dogs out of the shelter on day trips or a sleepover.

“These dogs have been with East Bay SPCA for weeks or months and are struggling in the shelter environment despite the shelter’s best efforts to provide them with the attention and care they need,” the animal shelter said in a press release.

In addition to day trippers, the East Bay SPCA is seeking adopters and fosters for large dogs.


The SPCA’s two adoption shelters, in Oakland and Dublin, are open Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Oakland Adoption Center is located at 8323 Baldwin St. The Dublin Adoption Center is at 4651 Gleason Drive.

Good idea, get the pooch out for much-needed exercise, and who knows? Maybe a few of the volunteers will get attached, and decide to adopt and give it a permanent home.

You take one for a sleep over and you won’t want to take it back…. it does not take long to fall in love with a dog.

Definitely a better solution than the Martinez Animal Shelter’s current euthanization program.

I thought the the high school track team took them sometimes.

The SPCA is a local organization that cares for animals. The ASPCA that you see on TV ads is a national organization that only has ONE small animal shelter and spends more money on lawyers than animals.

just adopted my 1 yo girl, Bear, gsd, from Mtz shelter.
very pleasant experience.
despite being overwhelmed w/pits, huskies, gsd’s, the volunteers are trying hard to make the dogs’ lives somewhat better.
Wish i could help, but I’m not sure how she would handle it….
Will spread the word for these doggies.
What about police officers, fire houses(!) church groups ??
+military service people 🙂
