A special animal holding room in the room recently got a facelift due to the generosity of Volunteer mentor Yvonne and her husband, Phil. Last year when Yvonne and Phil were married, they asked that instead of receiving wedding gifts, friends and family make a donation to Friends of Oakland Animal Services (FOAS). On top of this, Phil’s company matched the money donated to FOAS, which made it possible for Yvonne and Phil to design kennels and have them fabricated for installation in puppy parlor.
Puppy parlor is home to many small dogs, most of which used to be housed in makeshift kennels. Last weekend, Yvonne and Phil along with Volunteer Mentors Roger & Chui, and other friends worked all day to install the new kennels in the room. We are so thankful to give these dogs a calmer, more stable place to live during their time at the shelter. We are incredibly grateful for this incredible donation.
It is thoughtfulness and dedication like this that helps OAS carry out its mission of caring for the hundreds of animals that pass through our doors each month. Thank you Yvonne & Phil for spearheading such a much needed project and to everyone for their effort and time installing the kennels last weekend!
