THE STORY:

At Friends of Oakland Animal Services (FOAS) our mission is to provide homes, health, and happiness for homeless animals in Oakland, CA. As the non-profit partner of Oakland’s only open-door shelter, FOAS provides vital support for 6,000 stray and surrendered animals every year.

Among them are nearly 2,000 stray, injured, sick, abandoned, neglected, and homeless cats. With support from FOAS and our rescue partners, Oakland Animal Services (OAS) achieved an admirable 93% live release for cats in 2015. We hope to do even better in 2016 and beyond, but with rising intake due in part to the Bay Area’s housing crisis, our shelter facilities are being taxed more than ever.

Our most sensitive feline residents - those that are senior, fearful, recovering from surgery, or just need a little extra time to find their forever homes - are housed in our largest cat room, affectionately called “Cat Alley”. This room has our largest cages, but they are also the oldest in the shelter, and are well past their useful life. They are rusty, broken down, impossible to completely sterilize, and were not designed for feline health and comfort.

With your assistance, we aim to replace these cages with modern cat condos. Our new condos will bring all the benefits of modern animal welfare research to maximize the comfort of cats like Nancy:

At 15-years old, after a life of comfort, Nancy was surrendered to OAS because she had grown old, and developed medical issues. With financial support from FOAS, Nancy was diagnosed with an antibiotic-resistant urinary infection - a serious condition, but fortunately treatable. The treatment requires 14 days, followed by additional lab tests. During this time, Nancy resides in Cat Alley. She is provided with all the basics, but her cage lacks any perch or concealment, there is no separation between her bed/food area and her litter box, and access to her cage for socialization and cleaning is cumbersome.

With your support we can provide improved housing for cats like Nancy - condos that can be properly sterilized to prevent disease transmission, and are designed to minimize stress and maximize health.
