We're Building a New No-kill Shelter for Oakdale and Riverbank!

The ASTRO Foundation, founded in 2012, is a 501c3 non-profit corporation whose mission is to save the lives of homeless animals by engaging students in the rescue process.

Our current goal is to build a no-kill shelter for the Oakdale/Riverbank area, a community of about 45,000 residents, where students can volunteer, learn about animal welfare, and give back to their community.  Indigo Architects, located in Davis, CA has designed a 4,850 sq. ft. no-kill shelter for us that will be built at 772 Wakefield Ct, Oakdale, CA on a one-acre lot that ASTRO Foundation has recently acquired.. 

Since inception, ASTRO has strived to rescue homeless pets from the City of Oakdale Animal Shelter.  This dramatically undersized shelter was built in the early 1970s to serve a population of 5,000 so the old shelter now stressed and overburdened.
