MCAS will be facilitating adoptions through appointment only at (941) 742-5933.
MCAS will still approve foster applications and transfer of animals to rescue. Residents can help shelter animals by signing up as an emergency foster to provide animals relief from the shelter environment. Individuals interested in fostering can do the following:
Sign up to be an emergency on-call foster by filling out the application.
MCAS will provide supplies, but we encourage fosters to start planning ahead and gathering resources in anticipation of fostering a pet.
Rescue organizations should call (941) 527-9915 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange pulling of MCAS animals.
Editor’s Note: FoMCAS put on a fun Howl’ween Pet Costume Contest last year!
