Volunteer & Donation Opportunities at FOFAS

If you love animals, FOFAS has the volunteer opportunity that's just right for you! Below is one example of a way you can help by filling currently open volunteer positions:

Dog Fosters We need dog fosters, so more shelter dogs can make it safely to new adoptive homes.
.
Cat and Kitten Fosters: Spring and Summer are a busy time for the shelter. Kitten season is upon us and we need people to help care for and socialize the kittens to get them ready for adoption.
.
Cat Photographers: Love animals? Love photography? Why not combine the two? FOFAS is looking for someone to take pictures and write bios of incoming cats for our website. Flexible schedule, requiring approximately 2-4 hours a week.

Dog Photographer: If you enjoy the antics of doggies hamming it up for the camera, here's a great way to spend a few hours every other Sunday. Dog photographers work with another (experienced!) volunteer to photograph incoming dogs for publicity/web site posting, then crop and/or edit the photos at home and email them to other volunteers for posting.
.
.
Dog Walkers: Get some exercise and make a dog's day. We need more dog walkers to help us get our canine friends out of their cages.
.
.

Donations: Perhaps you don't have time to volunteer right now.

Monetary donations of any amount are always gratefully accepted, or consider donating some wet kitten food to help us feed the many kittens coming through the shelter this summer. FOFAS gratefully accepts donations of UNOPENED cans or bags of food (our shelter veterinarian requests that we not accept opened bags of food). You may drop the food off at the shelter or consider a Petsmart gift card.
