Recently, over 30 dogs were seized by Animal Control Officers and brought into OAS for urgent care. They were found living in unsanitary conditions — in a feces-and-urine-soaked apartment — and were severely neglected.
These dogs required immediate medical treatment, including extensive dental and eye surgeries estimated to cost $30,000, and OAS staff quickly jumped into action to help them.
Friends of Oakland Animal Services is committed to funding the care they need to have a second chance, and donors like you make this possible.

A large number of the dogs also have chronic untreated eye conditions with secondary irritation from matted fur abrading the surface of their eyes. As time was of the essence, OAS volunteer groomers went to work quickly to remove matted fur and trim toenails. All of the dogs suffered from untreated dental disease ranging from moderate to severe with significant oral pain.
Every one of these helpless pups needs urgent dental care with extractions, and some will need enucleations (removal of the eye). OAS staff is working as quickly as possible to make this happen.
We’re hopeful for their recovery and we’re looking forward to the day they will be pain-free.
