We've missed you!

The main FAAS shelter at 1590 Fortmann Way is now open for walk-up adoptions noon to 4PM on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

You do not need an appointment to meet pets during these hours. 

Our satellite adoption location, 2228 South Shore Center (in the outdoor mall), is open Wednesday through Sunday. Please drop in to meet kittens, some of our adult cats, and all of our bunnies and Guinea pigs.

FAAS is looking for energetic animal lovers who would like to make a real difference in our shelter's operation.
