FOSMAS is currently partnering with the Shelter leadership staff to identify projects that will help the quality of life for the animals during their time at the Shelter. This includes both large- and small-scale projects.
Here are some of the projects that your donations will help come to fruition.
A state-of-the-art medical suite is one of our major fundraising goals. We’re one of the only shelters in LA without its own medical facility. Having an in-house medical suite will allow us to treat sick and injured animals on-site, without the need to transport them and cause any additional stress. Having an on-site facility for spay/neuter will also lower adoption costs.
Dogs need attention and exercise to maintain both their emotional and physical health. FSMAS will work to transform the play area more space for play areas, sectioned by dog size, and shade screens to block strong Southern California sun. Studies show that dogs that have playtime are more adoptable allowing them the best chance to find their forever home.
updated animal enclosures
Extended confinement in cage-type enclosures can cause anxiety and even permanent behavioral issues, thereby lowering an animal’s adoptability. FSMAS wants to transform the Shelter’s enclosures with glass fronts, sound-proofing and other upgrades to help reduce stress.
Day to day supplies
New beds, blankets, toys and other items that help keep animals content and comfortable during their stay in the shelter.
