HELP SAVE A PET
PLEASE DONATE NOW!
Welcome To F.O.T.A.S Rescue!
The Friends Of The Animal Shelter (FOTAS) was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) organization on June 1st 2015.
Being a registered charity, enables us to raise funding for the numerous animals that are held in local shelters.
We work closely with Sioux City Animal Adoption & Rescue Center and our "goal" is to obtain any necessary medical attention that may be required, in addition to spaying and neutering as many pets as possible, prior to adoption - this is all done WITHOUT increasing the adoption fee for that particular animal, because these additional expenses could be prohibitive to a new pet owner.
We work with both Cats & Dogs - but the focus is mainly on Cats as they are often abundant and we like to focus on getting them fixed and in to new, loving homes as soon as possible.
In the majority of cases, we have more money invested into an animal than we charge for adoption fees, this is obviously a terrible "business model" - but as long as they find GREAT homes, then we are happy to continue ;)
Since July Of 2014:
$1,998 Has Been Spent On Special Medications For The Cats & Dogs At The Local Shelter
3489 Rabies Shots Have Been Administered To Animals At The Shelter
1623 Shelter Animals Have Been Spayed Or Neutered Prior To Adoption
46 Animals Have Received Emergency Medical Attention
- And these numbers increase monthly!
ALSO NOTE THAT WE HAVE A 100% ADOPTION RATE!!
(Since we started, we have found GREAT Homes For Over 4,200 Animals!!!)
Every other month, we also take Cats out to the Sioux City Petsmart store - where we typically find homes for 60-70 (or more) Cats during the month, this is something that just would not be possible without the funding that FOTAS generates. We also participate in their quarterly "National Adoption Events"
UPDATE - IN 2019, FOTAS HAS FOUND HOMES FOR OVER 1,200 ANIMALS VIA PETSMART
We also give cash donations to shelters & rescues in our local area.
As a 501(c)(3) any donation to our organization that you make, is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
