Monthly free vaccine clinics for East Bay pet owners

‚ÄčDue to COVID-19, our Clinic on May 10th is cancelled. We are hopeful that we might be able to have our June 7th Clinic, but in reality we just do not know. As of right now, Ira Jinkins, our Clinic location, is closed (and gated) through May 31st. Please check our Facebook page for the latest updates and thanks for your support and understanding in this very difficult time.

The most affordable resource we know of for puppies right now is PetVet Petfood, in Oakland and El Cerrito. Please check their website and call them directly for their hours by location, availability, policies and procedures. 

PALS is continuing limited outreach services to homeless camps and curbside communities in Oakland through the shelter in place order.

PALS provides free core vaccines, dewormer and flea treatment to East Bay pet owners on a monthly basis at our clinic in East Oakland. We do not ask for proof of income, but given the demand for services in our community, we ask that you only attend if you cannot otherwise afford basic vet care. Spay and neuter assistance is also available!

Puppies should be in crates, carriers or otherwise off the ground until fully vaccinated, and kittens/cats must be in crates or carriers. dogs must be on leash and sick animals should not come.

We always need volunteers to help -- especially vets and vet techs! Email us at to volunteer, for all other questions please email

A list of dates is below. Pet owners should arrive to sign in before 9:00 am.  We are at the Ira Jinkins Community Center, 9175 Edes Avenue Oakland rain or shine.
