Start your day off right by looking at some lovable pups! There are dozens of dogs up for adoption right here in Oakland. 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 partnered with Petfinder, an online adoption site that lists “more than 315,000 adoptable pets from nearly 14,000 animal shelters and rescue groups" to bring you this roundup of dogs near you.

(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)

More about Kelso:

My love languages are gifts of food and quality time. If you feed me steak and chicken, I will give you all of me. And I'm a LOT! My body is little, but friends tell me that I have a huge personality. Apparently, I come off pretty strong, so I don't make friends easily, and I've been single for a very long time; but the friends I do have think I'm a super fun and devoted friend in return.
