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!
