The dog “Noggin” referred to in Sara’s posting (6-10-13) bit an individual and a dog resulting in medical treatment for both victims. He was deemed unadoptable and euthanized. Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS) has a live release rate (adoptions, transfers, owner returns) of 94%. This is among the highest of any open-intake shelter in the Bay Area. We are required to accept any Alameda (city) animal regardless of their age, health, temperament, or any other factor. No animals are euthanized because they have run out of time, or because we have run out of space. We are able to treat and rehabilitate many animals in our city shelter because of the generous donations received from the public.

If you have any questions about FAAS policies, animal enrichment programs, or our work with local rescue groups, please contact Mim Carlson at 510-337-8565 or mimcarlson.faas@gmail.com.
