About 

History

 Friends of Sitka Animal Shelter was formed in Fall of 2021 by a group of volunteers who care deeply for the animals of our community.

 

Mission

 Friends of Sitka Animal Shelter (FOSAS) is dedicated to providing quality care to animals in need while offering resources, services, and education to community members. FOSAS aims to improve the lives and well-being of animals that live at the Sitka Animal Shelter while they await their forever homes as well as provide community engagement, outreach, and education to the pet owners of our beloved little town. FOSAS is still in the beginning stages and is excited to offer new programs and services in the future.
