THE STORY:

Update 2: THANK YOU for helping us meet our goal of $5000. Frodo's medical care should be covered now and any additional donations will help us care for other puppies with parvo or other animals in need of medical treatment. So please continue to donate to the Emergency Medical Fund, and we will continue to do our best to save lives.

Update 1: Frodo's treatment for Parvovirus is going well. He has checked out of the veterinary hospital and is recovering in a foster home. Thank you for contributing to Frodo's care!

Frodo, a young Terrier-mix pup, was found as a stray and brought to Oakland Animal Services, the city’s municipal animal shelter. A happy and adorable little guy, he was quickly adopted at this year’s Maddies Pet Adoption Days in May. But then things took a sad turn. While awaiting his sterilization surgery, Frodo was exposed to another puppy with parvovirus, and Frodo too developed this life-threatening illness. Canine parvovirus attacks rapidly dividing cells in a dog’s body, most severely affecting the intestinal tract. Parvovirus also attacks the white blood cells, and when young animals are infected, the virus can damage the heart muscle and cause lifelong cardiac problems. Unfortunately, OAS has numerous challenges with the volume of animals coming in and a facility that needs more maintenance than fits into the budget, staff that works hard but is under-resourced, and more. Dogs infected with parvovirus need intensive treatment in a veterinary hospital, where they receive antibiotics, drugs to control the vomiting, intravenous fluids and other supportive therapies. This treatment comes at considerable expense, since the average hospital stay is about 5-7 days, and treatment is not always successful. Thus, Frodo’s adopters determined to surrender him back to OAS. But we want to give Frodo another chance . . . can you help us help him? Approximately 6,000 animals come through OAS’ doors every year and the veterinary staff provides the best medical care possible in the shelter’s facility for all the animals. However, those with severe injuries or illness require extensive treatment that is not normally budgeted by the city’s general fund. For those special cases, OAS seeks support from Friends of Oakland Animal Services' Emergency Medical Fund to provide services through local veterinary hospitals. Thank you for helping Frodo and other OAS shelter animals with special medical needs!
