About the City of Oakdale Animal Shelter:
The current shelter building was built in the 1960’s with 10 dog kennels when the population of Oakdale was less than 5,000 people. A small addition was built in the early 1980’s when the population was 8,500. Three indoor quarantine dog kennels and 5 overflow outside dog kennels were added. Since then, the population of Oakdale has more than doubled to approximately 19,000. In an attempt to keep up with the growing animal population in 2012 we added 5 more outside kennels for dogs.
Incoming animals to the shelter for this year will total over 1,500, an increase of 10% over 2007 due to increased population and expansion of the City limits.
Oakdale Animal Shelter has the lowest euthanasia rate, and highest adoption rate of municipal shelters in Stanislaus County, and possibly Northern California. Dogs are walked daily and taught basic manners by volunteers, which helps make them more adoptable. Volunteers create and put up 120 posters of shelter animals weekly. Pets are also listed on the Internet with Petfinder.com and petharbor.com which also help increase adoptions. Volunteers hold adoptions during Oakdale Farmers Market during the summer, and do monthly Adoption Days at Riverbank Petco, and The Tractor Supply Store.
