Who We Are

The Friends of Attleboro Animal Shelter (FAAS) is a non-profit, all volunteer 501(c)3 organization dedicated to providing financial and volunteer support to the Attleboro Animal Shelter for the care and well-being of the hundreds of unwanted, stray and needy cats and dogs that annually pass through the shelter.  On a daily basis, our volunteers provide these homeless cats and dogs with nourishment, medical treatment, affection, and most of all, help in finding a loving new home. 

In 2006, nearly 400 abandoned companion animals - 280 cats and 107 dogs - looking for a second chance in life were successfully placed in loving homes through adoptions facilitated by Friends of the Attleboro Animal Shelter.  We are looking forward to saving even more deserving animals in 2007!

The Attleboro Animal Shelter houses homeless cats and dogs for the City of Attleboro, Massachusetts.  Our adoption fee is $120 for cats, puppies and dogs.  Kittens may be adopted for $120 with a $30 refund upon proof of spay or neuter.  Please make adoption fee  payments in the form of check or money order only.  The City of Attleboro cannot accept cash.

All dogs & puppies receive a physical exam, rabies shot, parvovirus shot, distemper shot, spaying/neutering, heartworm and seasonal flea & tick preventative, and worming (puppies only).

All of our kittens receive a physical exam and first set of shots.  Adult cats receive a physical exam, shots with rabies vaccination, combo test for FIV/FELV, and are either spayed or neutered.  Flea treatment, ear cleaning and nail trimming are included in the adoption fee for both cats and kittens.

~ We Still Need Foster Homes for Homeless Cats! ~

Love animals?  Become a foster family! 

Want to make a real difference in an animal's life?  Consider being a foster family. 

Foster families provide a loving home environment for our cats, kittens, puppies and adult dogs awaiting adoption.  The time commitment varies from pet to pet, from a few weeks to a few months, or more. 

Currently, we have several momma cats and kittens who need foster homes. We will provide everything needed to care for the foster animals - food, litter, a cage and any veterinary care. We would like to place only one mother and her kittens per home, and hope to keep them there until they are adopted out.
