Adopt From FAAS
Welcome to the new and improved Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter! We've modernized our kennels for safety and comfort and put in cheerful new flooring.
We are open three afternoons a week for in-person adoptions, or can make an appointment for you to meet pets.
We look forward to helping you meet your new family member!
