Upcoming Events, Awareness Days & Fundraisers

The FMSPCA relies entirely on donations from the public and grants to sustain its operations – we receive no Federal funding. You can support us by attending our events or by becoming a Pawsitive Partner and hosting your own fundraiser on behalf of local pets in need.

Looking to contribute in a unique way, sponsorship is the way to go!

National Pet Day

National Pet Day is a chance for those of us who own pets to show them how much we love them. Now, we all can think of the traditional things: a new toy, some tasty treats, or a long walk in the park. You can also celebrate your relationship with your pet by shopping in our in-shelter boutique this week or making a donation through our giving catalogue on behalf of your pet!
