Sit a Dog, Save a Life lets you raise money for local dogs-in-need by doing something you do already... asking your friends, family and neighbors to watch your dog while you travel, instead of leaving him in a kennel! Look for sitters in Oakland with the Rover Donation Badge for one of these nonprofits, and a portion of your fee will be donated.

Northern California Sled Dog Rescue

NorSled rescues, fosters and finds homes for unwanted, abandoned and abused Northern breed dogs: Siberian Huskies, Alaskan Malamutes, Samoyeds, and mixes of these breeds.

NorSled works directly with shelters in most Northern California counties, and also if there is space, shelters in other Northern California areas, Central California and Western Nevada. In some circumstances NorSled may take owner surrenders, but they usually work through the shelter system. They work closely with other Nordic Breed rescues in other areas, and can refer owners in crisis to the rescue nearest them.

More on Oakland

When your dog hears nature calling, Oakland, California has a number of great places where he can stretch his legs and have a howling good time! Head on out to Redwood Regional Park for an off-leash trot, or have an explosively fun time together at the Robert Sibley Volcanic Preserve.

If your dog wants to answer the "call of the wild" and still exercise his cultured canine side, be sure to mark your calendars with a red paw print for the second Saturday of the month from October to December. Oakland's Jack London Square plays host to the dog-friendly Jack of All Trades fair in (where else?!) Jack London Square. You and your pup can fetch some local art and food. Yum!

But for those times that you need a pet sitter and a temporary loving home for your beloved canine companion, look no further that Rover. At, we love your pets just as much as you do and are proud to list dog sitters, dog walking services, and dog boarding in Oakland that take this love for dogs just as personally as we do. - Dog Boarding Community
