About our life-saving programs


When making a donation you will be asked to choose one of the following funds. 

General Fund
Your donation is directed to the program or animal most in need.

The Thrifty Kitty 
Help pay expenses to run our new thrift store, The Thrifty Kitty. All net proceeds from The Thrifty Kitty go directly to care for FAAS shelter animals.  

Starfish Medical Fund
Help pay for the medical treatment of animals that arrive seriously ill or injured. This fund covers dental procedures, broken bones, cancer, advanced mange, eye disease and countless other conditions. It is funded entirely by donations. Named in honor of Starfish, a German shepherd puppy who overcame Swimmer Puppy's Syndrome with the help of supporters like you.

Sasha Training Fund
Help us provide free basic canine training with every dog adoption and send FAAS shelter dogs with behavior problems to a training camp. Shelly and Sherry Gable established the Fund in memory of their beloved German shepherd, Sasha. 


Thanks to the support of friends like you,
Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter is able to to save virtually
every homeless pet that comes through our doors.
