Ashland Food Co-op Holds Benefit Dog Wash for FOTAS

Friends of the Animal Shelter (FOTAS) was founded in 1990 to support the animals at the Jackson County Shelter. FOTAS has hundredsl of volunteers who walk dogs, socialize cats, and provide financial support to spay/neuter efforts. FOTAS also works with local teachers to provide educational opportunities to students throughout Jackson County about responsible pet ownership. FOTAS is the fundraising arm for the medical fund at the Shelter and provides low cost opportunities for pet adoption of older or more difficult dogs and cats.

The Ashland Dog Wash, co-sponsored by Ashland Food Co-op, raises more than $1,000 for the Animal Shelter each year. The fun part is seeing both returning dogs and and new adoptees with their owners. It’s an event not to be missed!
