oakland animal shelter, horrible service.
So yesterday we get home and find a tiny pitbull, light brown coat whiteish blackish face with some war wounds. Nothing drastic, but some. Skinny too, like starving. So I whistle and it comes over. My gf asks me to bring him inside to feed him so we do. Super nice dog very friendly but also scared.
We keep him withus over night and take him to the Oakland animal shelter, thinking hopefully it belongs to someone who loves him and wants him back. (We lost a dog once) so my gf walks in with it and the question her like routine then they shove a needle in his mouth, without any second thought, so the dog yelps from pain and no not got agrresive and not not tried to bite anyone, just yelped from the suprise and the poke. Then the person straps him down with a green rope like if he was a cow...... the dog is about 20 pounds... wtf! Horrible, I will never take another dog there, incredible. I know they deal with a lot of dogs but **** the dog ain't bit nobody nor ate anyones food. And by the way this person is part of the oakland police department, so it ain't just some minimum wage teenager that wants his check....
Hope this helps someone avoid this horrible service, and maybe someone else will treat "buddy" better. Yeah we named him buddy.
