Annual Reports 

Welcome to Shelter Life at the East Bay Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

We began as the Oakland SPCA in 1874. Today, the East Bay SPCA includes two animal shelters and three clinics in our community.

This is our day.

(Sorry about the confuddled order of the text and posts in this entry.... I can't figure it out, but we'll make it a game! See if you can match the correct captions to the right dogs!)

To us (and most of you, apparently) dressing up your pet is the most natural thing in the world. One the best things about having a pet is being able to dress him with feathers and baggy clothes and not have him drag you into his therapist's office 20 years later....

We held a Halloween event at both shelters today, in Oakland and Dublin, to give a chance for pet owners and adopters to show off their finest costumes. Our Hallo-WOOF-een! costume contest was judged by Carolyn McArdle (from KKIQ) in the Tri-Valley and Sherry Brown (from KOIT) in Oakland.

We had a bunch of winners (not all of whom are shown below) and here are a few of our visitors:

A Tired Busy Bee...

A very NOT tired Busy Bee...

This is Princess, dressed like a Devil. You decided.

Poor OllieDog. Barely anyone wanted to take a pic of his face; they all wanted the cute jeans' butt with the tail sticking out.

We were privileged to receive the Famous Hugh Hefner, with the his bunny, Charlotte. Smashing, both of them. We were concerned that Charlotte was being exploited but she assured me she enjoyed her bunny ears.

You probably can't tell from the photo, but Nacho was dressed as Curious George. Easily one of my favorite costumes, but unfortunately, with the stiff little dog competition, Nacho went home empty handed except for all his Trick-or-Treating toys.

And now, a REAL Princess. Can you see the toenails?

Beanie ready for take off.

Brody was the ultimate cool-cat, even while dressed like a nerd. No lie: he LIKED wearing those sunglasses and kept them on all day.

And this is Jake. In case you can't tell, those are tiny yellow chickies on his t-shirt. Jake came as a chick magnet.

The chick magnet pun is sheer GENIUS.


They are all so cute!!!!!!!!!!! I love all the costumes!!!!!!!!!!!!!
