Sasha came to FOPAS with three kittens that she had given birth to at the animal control facility in Perry. Sasha was very skinny and her kittens where tiny and it was obvious that she didn't get the nutrition she needed during pregnancy. One of her kittens she gave birth to four, had passed away shortly after birth. The three remaining kittens come to FOPAS. Sasha was given Science Diet Urgent Care pate cat food. Its very expensive but it is very high in nutrients and calories. She and her kittens where beginning to gain weight. Then one kitten stopped nursing, and got diarrhea and passed away. This is common with kittens born to a feral or street cat that cannot get the nutrients she needs to keep herself and her kittens healthy.
Sign up for our monthly newsletter on our home page. On the first of each month a newsletter will be E-mailed to all of our subscribers. Here is August Issue:
We have received letter from the city of Perry, stating that we can no longer have the dogs or the dog pens behind the shelter, without the ability to have the dogs outside we cannot keep dogs at our facility. Its cruel to keep the dogs in crates twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week with some potty breaks on leashes. FOPAS will not be taking any animals until this issue is resolved.
Puppies are about a week away from being ready the only way to reserve a puppy is to come to the shelter and put down a 150$ non-refundable deposit that becomes your adoption fee upon pick up. I had lots of interest on certain puppies via Facebook messenger, those messages are lost to the wind I cannot find any of them. That is why E-mail was the best way to get in touch about showing interest n a puppy. Please if you would like to adopt, come by the shelter and meet the puppies and put down a deposit.
Hours are 2PM-6PM Tues- Friday
Special Saturday hours March 11th only 8AM - 6PM
"To offer refuge, medical care, nourishment and an opportunity for a second chance at life to injured, unwanted and abused animals” is the mission statement of Friends of Perry Animal Shelter (FOPAS).
FOPAS was first incorporated in 2004 and until two years ago, the organization ran out of volunteers’ homes. Lynne Gibbs, volunteer and adoption coordinator, has been with the organization right from the beginning.
