Interested in adopting a pet — or just gazing at some cuddly canines up for adoption? There are dozens of endearing dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Oakland.
Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of dogs currently available for adoption.

CeCe, chihuahua and dachshund mix
CeCe is a female chihuahua and dachshund mix currently housed at The Power of Chi.
CeCe is a social animal — she's happy to keep company with other dogs. She's already vaccinated and spayed. Good news: She is already house-trained.
More from CeCe:
I love to chase and romp around with other dogs, so I'd be a great pup to take to the dog park. Did I mention I'm quiet and don't really bark? I can be a little shy at first, but when I come out of my shell, I'm a funny flirt and do well. I'm smart little girl and can pick-up things quickly if I'm shown. I'd really enjoy having a doggie friend so we can be DFFs (Doggie Friends Forever) until the end.
