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.

Casper is a wonderful example of why we started our Club Second Chance Fund. This fund provides for services and diagnostics required by some of our most deserving cats and dogs. Casper is a “mature” gentleman who won our hearts during his time in both Oakland and Dublin Adoption Centers. Through Club Second Chance, we were able to get him the expensive diagnostic work necessary to determine his medical condition and get him on the right medication so he could go to his new home… which he happily has done!

Our adopter and volunteer, Karin, has only wonderful things to say about Casper.
From Karin: Hi. I thought folks at the East Bay SPCA who remember and loved Casper while he was a resident in Oakland and Dublin (before being adopted by me!), would enjoy these pictures.
Two weeks ago Casper and I went down to Pacific Grove for a long weekend. Pacific Grove is a wonderful little town situated between Monterey and Carmel. I'm telling you, did Casper have fun! We took early morning walks on the beach everyday. He socialized with other dogs at the wonderful "off leash" dog beach in Carmel. He chased after water birds on the shore and would have loved to go after some sun bathing seals or a few deer walking around Asilomar State Park had he not been on a leash! Casper was reliving his young "whipper snapper" dog days that weekend. He even met a lovely young chocolate Lab named "Kona" at the dog-friendly motel we stayed at. It was love at first sight for Casper. He followed Kona everywhere when the two were together!
I think you can tell by Casper's big smile in the photos below, that he really had a ball. He had to rest up from his big out-of-town weekend, but is doing fine now. I think he misses the beach though (…and Kona).
: )

I am so happy we were able to give Casper the second chance he deserved.

Oh, I am so happy to read this! Casper was one of my favorites at the Oakland shelter, and he was the first one I walked every time I volunteered. A true gentleman, so patient and appreciative of every belly rub and yummy treat. It sounds like he's found his ideal home and "Mom" too. And Karin, you are one lucky Mom!


I'm so glad that Casper found such a great home! He looks overjoyed in those twho photos on the beach. Thanks for keeping us updated!
