Since 2005, Friends of Oakland Animal Services (FOAS) has supported Oakland Animal Services (OAS) in their lifesaving work. OAS is Oakland’s only open-admission shelter which means that every animal — homeless, orphaned, injured, unwanted, lost, abandoned, and mistreated — is welcomed. OAS takes in over 6,500 animals each year and has developed robust adoption and foster programs.

To celebrate OAS’ accomplishments and to ensure funding in the future, FOAS is holding their First Annual Gala Event on Saturday, Apr 8 (6:30-9PM). There is no admission to attend but there will be various ways to contribute during the gala. One of the auction items will be an image of your very own pup(s) on a one-of-a-kind label for our next Lucky Dog Hazy IPA. The beer will be distributed around the Bay Area in late June 2023. Come on by and make a bid!
