Find Furry Forever Friends From FAAS

Have you been thinking about giving a shelter animal a place in your heart and home? This Friday and Saturday, Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS) is going to make it extra easy, inexpensive, and fun to do!

On July 7 and 8, from noon to 4 p.m., FAAS will host an adoption fair right outside its shelter at 1590 Fortmann Way. There will be some big discounts on adoption fees, a huge selection of amazing dogs and cats—and the cutest kittens ever—along with free adopter goody bags from See Spot Run. To help make room in the shelter, which is filled with animals hoping for someone to love, dog adoption fees will be more than half off (just $55), and you can get two cute kittens for the price of one adoption fee ($111).

See Spot Run will have a trainer on hand to answer any questions about our adoptable pets. And as always, FAAS will reimburse up to $200 worth of training for adopters.

The pet of your dreams may be waiting for you right now at FAAS. And this extra special adoption fair is a great time to finally meet him/her.
