Help FOWAS continue to help our community!
Here is what we did in 2016:

  • 570 dogs, 646 cats and 65 rabbits have been spayed or neutered at the FOWAS-provided low-cost clinic. (October, 2015 - October, 2016).
  • The Second Chance Fund paid for the treatment of 11 adoptable animals at the shelter which otherwise the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter could not afford.
  • FOWAS also provides supplies (such as blankets, toys, etc.) to ensure that animals at the Shelter are as comfortable as possible and works to educate the public about animal care and spay/neuter.
  • The number of animals surrendered at the shelter has been decreasing since the spay & neuter clinic opened 3 years ago. We believe this is due to the services that FOWAS facilitates, especially spay and neuter.

Eleanor gets help from FOWAS

Eleanor (her new name) came in as a stray from Watsonville in the middle of March. Her mouth seemed to be bothering her and her gums were inflamed. Also noted were concerns about her hip/pelvis. The FOWAS Second Chance Fund covered the dental surgery involving the removal of 4 large teeth and some bone. FOWAS also funded x-rays identified hip/pelvis issues that could be from an old injury or possibly arthritis, but required no futher action. Following the surgery, Eleanor was eating well almost immediately and was adopted on April 15.
