Giving Tuesday: We're Matched!

Giving Tuesday is a global celebration of giving. This year it is Tuesday, Dec. 1. As you consider your end-of-year donations, please give generously to support Alameda's homeless pets.


We have TWO dollar-for-dollar matching opportunities this year! Up to $7,500 matched dollar-for-dollar by FAAS board and council members, and up to $7 million on Facebook through donate buttons and fundraisers for charities.



Double your donation through FAAS, up to $7,500.

Get your donation matched on Facebook, starting at 5 AM PST.


Facebook matching funds will be depleted quickly, so set your alarm clock!

As the only animal shelter serving the City of Alameda, Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS) welcomes almost 1,000 lost and abandoned pets each year; shelters, feeds, cares for, and loves them; and reunites these pets with worried owners or places them into new forever loving homes.

FAAS never euthanizes for time or space. We never turn away a pet with special medical or behavior needs. Our goal is to save every pet that comes our way, and our success rate is more than 98 percent. We depend heavily on public donations to do this important work for our community's pets.

As you observe this year's Giving Tuesday, whether it is silently giving thanks to the people of the world who do good, helping a neighbor in need, or giving to your favorite charitable organization, please consider supporting FAAS with a generous donation.

Other ways you can give to FAAS: 

Become a FAAS fosterer. We need loving foster families to care for our animals until they can be adopted! For more information on becoming a fosterer, contact Nanou at 
Become a Forever Friend. Always be there for homeless animals by making a monthly or quarterly donation. Become a Forever Friend!
Adopt from FAAS. Take home one of our wonderful pets for a trial adoption and fall in love! You will be helping FAAS, and a homeless pet, and changing your own life for the better!

June the Jack Russell mix, pictured with FAAS volunteer Donna Herzing on this page, is one of many animals that have been helped by FAAS. She is also a long-term resident due to her need for assistance with walking. If you are seeking a companion who will love and need you, check out June's profile and ask to meet her!
