Now that the new shelter has been operating for about two months, we continue to get inquiries about adopting or surrendering animals on this website. To clear up any confusion, this site is for the Friends of the Animal Shelter (FOTAS). We organized several years ago to raise the additional funds required to build the County Shelter. Currently, we continue as a support group to assist them in any way we can; capital needs, spay and neuter education and marketing support.
Please visit the shelter or its website for all animal issues.

Reese – one of the first animals brought to the new shelter and happily adopted.
If you haven’t been by to see the beautiful new shelter, please make a point to do so. Be sure and meet our new Manager Paul Vis who came to TC from the Asheville Humane Society and will be a great asset to our goal of helping homeless animals. Introduce yourself to the three Animal Control Officers as well and let us know if you’d like to volunteer some time at the shelter.
Most importantly, go meet the wonderful dogs and cats waiting for their new homes.
Transylvania County and FOTAS is so pleased to make this long awaited announcement.
Mark your calendars for 11am on Saturday, August 3rd. Officials from the County, the City of Brevard and the Town of Rosman plus Dr. Clyde Brooks from FOTAS will make comments. Afterwards, the facility will be open for tours and refreshments will be served. This shelter is one we can all be proud of: full of state of the art features that will keep our animals healthy and safe until they can find forever homes. Please join us.
Please park at the NC DOT lot off Old Calvert Landfill Rd. Shuttles will be provided to the Shelter.
Friends and Donors – we are so excited to report that the construction of our new animal shelter is essentially finished. We are waiting for the furniture to be delivered and the donor boards that identify the generous gifts that made this place possible to be installed.
Next will be the Ribbon cutting with the County. We will let you all know when as soon as the date is selected. Please go to the Gallery section of this website and scroll down to see more pictures.
The reception area
We had a great turnout for the lure-running event with Swift Paws last Saturday. We ran over 65 dogs and everyone had a blast. Thanks to Meghan and her team for all their hard work. Our volunteers too!! We raised $750 for our programs.
The building is nearing completion. Check out the photos posted on this website if you haven’t been out by the new shelter. It looks great.
Thanks to so many individuals, groups and county officials for making 2012 the year our new shelter became a reality. The building is coming along so well and we are actually starting to plan the interior finishes on it. See the latest photo from last week below.
If you still plan to make any gifts yet this year, please consider the Friends of the Animal Shelter. We are so very close to our goal. You can make a donation directly from this website if you prefer.
Thank you for all your support.
The Friends of the Animal Shelter want to thank everyone for their tremendous support of our effort to complete the fundraising for our new shelter; the volunteers, the donors, our guests who attended, the staff of Marco Trattoria, our sponsors and most of all everyone at Eubanks Auctions.
The evening netted us over $34,000. We were so pleased; the patrons came in the spirit to help us achieve that success. We are very close to our goal of $350,000 so encourage everyone to remember us in your end of year giving.
