FAAS Pet Adoption Fair

The very adoptable Xander—pictured below—and Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS) cordially invite you to the  pet adoption fair this Friday and Saturday, August 4-5, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event will be held outside the FAAS shelter, so you’ll be able to meet a whole bunch of our amazing adoptable dogs and cats, along with loads of adorable kittens.

Xander has a special tip for you: “This weekend the adoption price for dogs is cut in half, and you get two kittens for the price of one!”

He’s right, as usual. Xander is not only a very handsome and good dog, but he is also a very smart dog. FAAS is brimming with animals who need to find loving homes, so they’re offering special fees this weekend: During the fair, dog adoption fees will be half off ($55 per dog), and you can get two kittens for the price of one ($111).



Pets adopted from FAAS come with a lot of perks, including spaying or neutering, vaccinations, a microchip, preventative deworming, flea control, up to $200 reimbursement for dog training, one free vet exam, and plenty of free post-adoption support. Once you’re home with your new pet, do not hesitate to call FAAS with questions or concerns. They are there to help and they want the adoption to succeed just as much as you do.

So if you’ve been thinking about adding a furry friend to your family, you may finally meet your match at FAAS! And if you’re not looking but know someone in the Bay Area who is hoping to find a dog or kitten, Xander asks you to let them know about the adoption event and the super-discounted adoption fees. FAAS is hoping that as many dogs and kittens as possible find homes.

Xander and a lot of his friends—some of them are pictured above—hope to see you there!

FAAS is located at 1590 Fortmann Way.
