Public donations make it possible for Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter to save virtually all -- more than 97% -- of the animals it receives. Whether you donate to our general fund, Starfish Medical Fund, or Sasha Training Fund, or donate in honor or memory of a person or pet, your gift helps to save the lives of hundreds of homeless pets a year.

Starfish Medical Fund

Help us pay for shelter pets' medical needs beyond basic care. This fund, which relies entirely on your donations, covers dental disease, broken bones, tumors, skin infections and other serious conditions. Your support is a major reason why FAAS is able to save such a high percentage of homeless pets. Thank you!

Sasha Training Fund

Many dogs are surrendered or abandoned because of perceived behavior problems. Your donations to this fund are used to provide six weeks of free training with every canine adoption, and to help our shelter dogs overcome behavior problems so they can be adopted. 

The late Shelly Gable established this program in memory of her beloved German shepherd, Sasha, and it continues to be generously supported by the Gable family and friends like you.
