FMAS regrets that in spite of incredible fund raising efforts including social media, a $20,000 matching donation pledge from an FMAS Board Member, and grant writing,our organization does not have sustainable funding to continue providing Madera City Residents the assistance they desperately need with spay/neuter programs. We make this decision solely to save our program. The county of Madera offers us continued financial support for this program and that is how we are able t.

The Friends of Madera Animal Shelter spay/neuter programs have been instrumental in reducing manyanimal related issues and have increased the save rate at the Madera Shelter from 17% when the program started to the current rate of almost 90%Dog license differentials for unaltered dogs and the community cat population reduction program rely heavily on the FMAS spay/neuter programs to be successful.
It has been estimated that for every dollar spent on spay/neuter services, $18 is saved ion Animal Control Costs.The Friends of Madera Animal Shelter does not want tor reverse all the progress made to date with spay/neuter programs and will work with the appropriate city employees to share anyinformation we have on other affordable spay/neuter options available to City Residents. If the City of Madera is able to provide additional funding sources for FMAS for spay/neuter surgeries for city animals, we would welcome the opportunity to continue providing these essential services for Madera City Residents.
