We are excited to host the first ever Friends of Oakland Animal Services running team! The team will participate in the Oakland Running Festival half-marathon on March 24, 2019. We have been training hard and are on our way to raising $15,000!!! Thank you for supporting us on our journey as we train together, and we'll see you at the finish line.
Friends of Oakland Animal Services (FOAS) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for shelter animals. Founded by Oakland Animal Services volunteers in December 2005, FOAS was created to support the municipal shelter’s efforts to better care for thousands of animals each year in the face of Oakland’s ongoing budgetary challenges. Our mission is to provide homes, health, and happiness for Oakland’s homeless animals.
