Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Friends of Madera Animal Shelter is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, run by dedicated volunteers working tirelessly to support the education of responsible pet ownership. Through donations, we spay and neuter pets in our community, reducing the number of animals being euthanized. We are sworn to saving animals in crisis, working with our rescue partners, finding qualified and loving forever homes through our adoption events
We are a nonprofit, independent, animal welfare organization dedicated to improving animal health and welfare in Madera County.
- Support the practice of humane attitudes
- Promote the altering of pets
- Work toward improving the general well being of animals through community education and outreach.
Our organization supports Madera County residents. We lessen the county's financial burden associated with animal over-population. Our resources, although limited, help support Animal Services activities and programs beyond those that can be afforded by the county.
- We help make low cost spaying and neutering programs available to the community. These important procedures are the only proven method for successfully reducing the suffering and expense of animal over population. They also serve animals and pet owners directly by minimizing health problems and providing behavioral benefits.
- We assist Madera County Animal Services toward its goal of eventually becoming a no kill shelter through the altering of pets and adoption of companion animals into caring homes.
- We provide educational and outreach programs to promote the compassionate treatment of animals.
