Looking to add a new companion to the family? There are dozens of cuddly canines up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Oakland, so you won't have to look far to find the perfect fit. Some shelters in the Bay Area have temporarily closed or reduced their hours amid the coronavirus pandemic, so if you are interested in an available pet, contact the animal rescue for its current adoption process.
Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of dogs available for adoption near you. Read on to meet some friendly, furry locals.

Tish, shepherd mix
Tish is an adorable female shepherd mix being kept at Bella Vita Rescue.
Tish will get along great with your other dogs, but she is looking for a cat-free forever home. She's spayed, and she has had all her shots. No need to worry: She is already house-trained, too.
Apply to adopt Tish today at Petfinder.
Bootsy, American Bully
Bootsy is a female American Bully in the care of BAD RAP.
She is already house-trained, vaccinated and spayed.
Notes from Bootsy's caretakers:
This stubby-legged little short stack is a comedian in a dog suit. So much fun. Total ball dog! She's also a big fan of playing tug and will shake and shimmy and growly growl like a dedicated party animal.

Mable, terrier mix
Mable is a lovable female terrier mix in the care of Bella Vita Rescue.
Mable loves other dogs, but her ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. She's already spayed and vaccinated, and she has mastered her house-training etiquette.
Mable's current caretakers say:
She is an absolutely GORGEOUS girl with a beautiful character to match.
Apply to adopt Mable today at Petfinder.
The shelter is currently closed, and adoptions are by appointment only. If you'd like to assist the nonprofit organization, which is in need of supplies, check out its wish list on Amazon.
