Oakdale Shelter Pet Alliance is an all-volunteer non-profit (501 3-c) organization, made up of local, animal loving residents.
It was founded in 2004 by volunteers at the animal shelter, and has provided financial support to the shelter, and the shelter animals through fundraising efforts.
OSPA has provided medical treatment for special needs animals, raised funds to improve the shelter facility, and promoted low cost spay/neuter programs in the area.
In the 1960’s, Oakdale, California was a small town of less than 5,000. At that time the city built a shelter at 9800 Liberini Road to house stray and unwanted animals, which consisted of ten kennels.
Twenty years later, when Oakdale’s population had swelled to 8,500, a small addition, which added three indoor quarantine kennels, as well as five outside kennels, was built.
Since that time, the population of Oakdale has more than doubled, to approximately 20,000 in 2011. In 2009 Oakdale contracted with the city of Riverbank to also provide animal control services for that community which has a population of over 20,000 residents.
Currently the Oakdale Animal Shelter provides services to a population of over 40,000 people. Yet, the number of kennels to house dogs and cats has not changed in over twenty-five years.
