FAAS to Open New Adoption Facility at Shopping Center

Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS) had such a successful holiday season at their satellite adoption center in South Shore Shopping Center, the nonprofit is looking to make the location permanent. The group reported the pop-up store generated 28 percent more donations and that thousands more visitors took the chance to connect with a potential new animal friend.

FAAS has begun a fundraising campaign and is soliciting business sponsors at this time. Various packages are available for local businesses to have their name associated with the shelter’s expansion effort starting at just $500. 

To become a sponsor, call FAAS Executive Director John Lipp at 337-8560, or Carla Thornton, FAAS marketing, communications and development coordinator, at 337-8572.

A campaign for the wider community to contribute to this effort is planned for next month. To make a donation now, visit www.alamedaanimalshelter.org or call 337-8565.
