Adoptions are free during our HOMES FOR THE HOLIDAYS adoptathon! Come visit the more than 100 pets waiting for a loving home. During this special event, the Alameda Support Foundation will grant FAAS $150 for every animal adoption. Thank you for sponsoring!
You can see most of the animals profiled here in person at 1590 Fortmann Way in Alameda. However, note that some of our cats and kittens are at a satellite store, located at FAAS South Shore in South Shore Center mall. If you are interested in visiting a specific cat or kitten, please call 510-337-8565 first to find out which location it is in.
Get a head start on your adoption by printing and filling out our adoption application and bringing it with you when you come to the shelter.
The Fortman location adoption hours are 11-7 Wednesdays and 11-5 Thursday through Sunday.
FAAS South Shore hours are noon-8 Wednesday through Friday and 10-5 Saturdays and Sundays.
Both adoption centers are closed Mondays and Tuesdays. However, the Fortmann location is open seven days a week for licensing and other business.
Thank you to Sheila Fitzgerald, Anthony Lim, and all the FAAS staff members and volunteers who use their photography skills to make these photographs possible.
