The announcement underscores the close and unique working relationship between Cat Town, the first of its kind animal rescue organization that finds homes for Oakland’s most vulnerable shelter cats, and OAS, the municipal shelter. This uncommon partnership has been instrumental to Cat Town’s success since Dunn, a former OAS volunteer, founded Cat Town in 2011. Together, the two organizations have worked to reduce the cat euthanasia rate at OAS from 42% in 2011 to less than 10% today.

Congratulations to Ann Dunn!
