Hurray! We're glad you're considering adopting a pet through Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter! We have many wonderful dogs, cats, rabbits and other companion animals seeking forever homes.
Adopt from FAAS
Adopt a shelter animal from FAAS. All of our pets available for adoption are listed on this page.
Because we want to keep FAAS staff, volunteers, visitors and adopters as safe and healthy as possible during the pandemic, both FAAS locations are closed to the general public at this time.
Instead, we are offering "virtual" adoptions, conducted largely by phone and email and ending with a masked, safely distant handoff in our parking lot. If you see a pet here that you might like to adopt, please call (510) 337-8565.
Adopt through Home To Home
FAAS is an affiliate of Home To Home, a free online service that helps match homes that need to surrender a pet with homes looking to adopt. Home To Home saves pets the trauma of a shelter stay. If you don't find a pet at our facility, we encourage you to explore local pets available for private adoption through Home To Home.
