Turning Passion into Action
The Animal Shelter to Riverbank and Oakdale (ASTRO) Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization formed in 2012 dedicated to rescuing homeless dogs and cats from the areas of Oakdale and Riverbank.
By working with a network of volunteers, foster caregivers, and local veterinarians, ASTRO Foundation is able to rescue hundreds of animals every year. The ASTRO Thrift & Gift Shop is located at 250 East E Street in Oakdale and all proceeds from the incredible shop directly benefit our rescue animals. We opened our first ever, ASTRO Foundation Adoption Center located at 157 N. Fifth Avenue in Oakdale in December of 2021.
The ASTRO Foundation is proudly supported by Petco Love and are so pleased to have cats and kittens available for adoption at Petco in Riverbank with weekend dog adoption events monthly! Our dream is to one day build a modern, no-kill shelter so that we can further serve our community and all of the animals in it.
