You can help shelter dogs by donating in a number of ways. Monetary donations to FACC primarily go towards veterinary care for shelter dogs in need. Sometimes, these expenses can be significant. Read more about Mikey’s story, just one example of the dogs saved by contributions from people like you. We also have a wish list of items list below that can be dropped off at the shelter. FACC is a 501c3 non-profit organization and therefore donations are tax deductible. Groups are also encouraged to hold their own fundraisers to benefit FACC.
See our FACC Fact Sheet on 2012 Shelter Stats to see how your contributions saves live. Checks can be sent to FACC at the following address: 125 N. Main Street, Suite 500 #129, Blacksburg, VA 24060.
