May is National Pet Month!


During this month we celebrate the benefits that pets bring to people's lives - and hopefully of the benefits that humans bring to pets’ lives. The focus of National Pet Month is to promote the benefits of pet ownership and support pet adoption. It also helps to increase public awareness of services available from professionals who work with animals such as animal shelters, veterinarians, and pet behaviorists. At the same time, it can also help to raise awareness of the role, value and contribution to society of working companion animals. During the month of May, visit the Pope Memorial Frontier Animal Shelter or a shelter near you to spend some time with the animals that are there looking for their own “furever” home. While you’re there, you may decide to volunteer on a regular basis or donate to help support the costs of these furry friends while they reside at the shelter.



Support PMFAS when you shop Amazon Smile!

With spring right around the corner, if you’re shopping Amazon to make some home and yard changes, remember to shop smile.amazon.com and enter Pope Memorial Frontier Animal Shelter as the non-profit organization that you choose to support. No purchase is too small to help support all the dogs and cats that stay at the shelter while waiting to find their forever homes. This is a very easy way to show your support and donate toward the food, medications, vet care, and cleaning supplies needed at the shelter. Thanks in advance for your support in caring for over 300 dogs and cats each year!
