We hold weekly Mobile Adoption Events in the East Bay. These fun events are a great time to meet our cats and kittens (and hopefully adopt one!), get more information about fostering one of our animals, or to learn about our volunteer opportunities. We sometimes have dogs or puppies at mobile events too.
Note: If you want to see a particular dog or cat at the mobile, please call us at 510-981-0890 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Over the past several years, significant strides have been made in reducing the rate of dog and cat euthanasia all across the nation. Home At Last Rescue (HAL) plays an active role in this "no-kill" movement by rescuing animals from city shelters, providing temporary foster care, and bringing these animals to the public for placement in high-quality, loving homes. Historically, HAL has operated primarily in the Berkeley area and has been instrumental in lowering the euthanasia rate in the Berkeley municipal shelter from over 60% three years ago, to under 20% this past year.
HAL is now working to replicate this success by expanding efforts to other East Bay communities. We have recently begun rescuing animals in Pinole and Martinez, and we have stepped up our efforts in Oakland and Alameda as well. We are extremely excited about the opportunity to make a bigger difference and would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of you who support us through your volunteer efforts, participation in our foster care program, and generous contributions. We truly could not do this without you.
Millions of cats and dogs are killed at municipal shelters each year. We rescue as many as we can from these shelters and then provide the animals with housing, socialization, rehabilitation and medical care. Once the animals are adoptable, we hold adoption events to find our animals loving, permanent homes.

Most of the dogs and cats presented on our pages have been rescued from the Animal Shelter in Berkeley, California and are now living in temporary foster homes with incredibly caring people. They have all been spayed or neutered, and are up to date on their shots.
Others were rescued from various circumstances, abandonment being the most common. In order to continue our work, we charge a fee for adopting an animal.
•Our adoption fee for dogs and puppies is $200.
•Our adoption fees for kittens and cats are 1 for $100, 2 for $175 (usually 1 for $145, 2 for $255).
•Our adoption fees for black kittens are 2 for $100 (usually 1 for $145, 2 for $255).
•Our adoption fees for adult cats 10 years and older is $100.
These prices now include the microchip registration fee.
We also ask that you fill out an Adoption Application, and a Pet Adoption Agreement to help us ensure that our animals are going to loving, stable homes. Please keep in mind that we are a non-profit organization and that your donation will not only help us to save more animals, it's also fully tax-deductible. We kindly ask for your support even if you are unable to adopt at this time.
We are a group of individuals committed to rescuing, fostering and finding homes for abandoned and/or unwanted animals.
We rescue primarily in the East Bay area of San Francisco, California.
Most of our cats and dogs are rescued from the City of Berkeley Municipal Animal Shelter shortly before they are due to be euthanized.
We also take in some animals from feral cat colonies or directly from owners surrendering their pets.
