To our FBCAS community:

As a lifesaving facility, we have maintained a 90% save rate for more than 5 years. In order to meet the demand for shelter space that we do not currently have, we will be making the very difficult decision to euthanize animals in our shelter for those who need to come in.

We currently have almost 230 dogs in a space for 87 with 40 of them in pop up crates in hallways, offices and every nook and cranny we could find. Yesterday, we received 22 dogs and today we anticipate more - we simply cannot go on like this for the

These are the four dogs of our current PUSH List (Pets Urgently Seeking Homes). It’s a list made up of our longest residents - those urgently in need of someone to adopt or rescue them

The shelter has been over capacity with our dogs for a long time, and we’ve had to resort to housing dogs in pop up kennels in our hallways and office space months.

We originally posted a list of 10 that needed to be adopted or rescued by 1/31/23. There’s still four on that list that were granted an extension…but they’re still very much in urgent need of adopters or

He runs like a baby deer as if

💘 Dolce - A039263 💘

Dolce is back in shelter from short term foster care, and she’s coming back with glowing reviews!

Here’s what her foster had to say about her:

“Dolce is a very sweet, smart, energetic pup. She gets along great with other dogs and children (5 & up - we did not have the opportunity to see how she does with toddlers).“
