Events give FOA's furry residents a break from their day-to-day routines while also giving the public an opportunity to visit with them in a different environment.


 Another important part of our events is fundraising. 


With our shelter being a non-profit organization, we rely heavily on donations from people like you.

By holding breakfasts, dinners, auctions, and contests we are able to raise funds in a way that is fun for both us and the people who contribute.
