|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.
|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 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 also be sent to:

Volunteers are needed at both the Watsonville and Santa Cruz shelters. The most common positions include: Cat TLC, Dog Exerciser, Rabbit Socializer, Pet Photographer, and Foster Parent. You must attend a general volunteer orientation, complete an application, and come to an interview with our volunteer coordinator. Volunteers must be 16 years or older, or 14 years if accompanied by a parent. This is a great way for teen parents to bond with their teen during that difficult life stage, and to set a compassionate example for them.
|Due to the required training and the benefits of working with experienced volunteers, a two year commitment is required. |
Please call the volunteer office (831-454-7202) to sign up for the next volunteer orientation.
