Organizations Filed Purposes:
Berkeley Humane serves the people and animals of our community by providing life-saving programs for cats and dogs, cultivating compassion, and strengthening the human-animal bond.
BEBHS is committed to helping homeless animals within its service area. It relies on its veterinary hospital and shelter to provide medical attention and shelter to its residents until they are adopted.
ADOPTION The primary purpose of Berkeley Humane is to shelter homeless companion animals until they are placed in suitable homes, and to educate the public about the ramifications and responsibilities of pet ownership. In 2019, 1,169 dogs and cats found new homes and 1,031 were fostered by our volunteers. Over 80% of our animals came from 14 municipal shelters in Alameda, Contra Cost, Marin, San Joaquin, Solano and other counties.
VETERINARY HOSPITAL Berkeley Humane's Veterinary Hospital performed over 5,400 exams, vaccinations and surgeries in 2019, including almost 1,200 shelter animals. The Hospital also provided over 375 spay/neuter surgeries to the public through our Spay the Bay Clinic, and over 450 other procedures for the public, including deworming, microchips and vaccinations.
EDUCATION AND TRAINING Berkeley Humane provides owner education seminars and dog training classes (including training for juvenile and difficult to handle dogs), reducing the potential that dogs will be rejected from homes and returned to a shelter or rescue. We provide special behavioral training classes and private consults for dogs that exhibit reactive and/or aggressive behavior, assisting owners in both the effective and safe management of them as well as techniques to change those behaviors. In 2019, 794 dog owners enrolled in 170 training classes. Our behavior advice line provided assistance to 327 animal owners.
