Donations and Volunteers

Weiner DOg Our Homeless Animals Need Your Help!

Our community has grown significantly in recent years, resulting in overcrowded conditions and support in short supply at our Watsonville shelter. This means less attention provided for each animal, with often the neediest animals suffering the consequences.

The good news -- FOWAS is here to help. Past donations to FOWAS have made a HUGE difference in the level of comfort, well-being and medical services our furry, homeless friends received. This valuable care can only be sustained with continued support and donations from our community.
Please consider making a donation or volunteering to help the city's animals in need. The programs we offer could not continue without people just like you.

All donations are tax deductible.Donations can be made to our general donation fund, Spay/Neuter Fund, Second Chance Fund, or Creature Comfort Fund. We also accept bequest and donations in memory of. Please specify any of these special requests below.
