We report the following classifications of optical transients from spectroscopic observations with the Kast spectrograph on the Shane telescope at Lick Observatory. Targets were supplied by ASAS-SN, ATLAS, PSST, and TNTS. All observations were obtained on 2018 Feb 07 UT and 2018 Feb 08 UT. Classifications were performed with SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024).

Notes: When the redshift is given to 2 decimal places, it is derived from the SN spectrum. Otherwise, the redshift is determined from the host galaxy. (1) We measure an H alpha velocity of -12,400 km/s. (2) We measure an Si II 6355 velocity of -14,500 km/s.
