How Your Donation Will Help FSFACC

The primary activity of the Friends of San Francisco Animal Care and Control is raising money for ACC and its rescue partners.

Why does a tax-supported agency like Animal Care and Control even need an organization like the "Friends"? ACC must share city revenues with approximately 75 other municipal agencies, and animals are not as high on the city's list of priorities as those benefiting humans. So the City of San Francisco severely limits ACC's budget. The city has suspended or disallowed many potential services and improvements at ACC due to lack of funds.

FSFACC has worked to improve this situation. Other city departments, like the Library, the Zoo, and Recreation and Parks, have nonprofit "Friends of" support organizations. The agency responsible for our city's homeless, abandoned and surrendered animals deserves at least as much. That's why FSFACC is "coming to the rescue."

You can be a "rescuer" too by becoming a Friend of ACC. Join us in improving the future of the animals in our community, in getting as many of them as possible into loving homes - and keeping them there. Have the satisfaction of knowing that your contribution directly benefits the less fortunate animals of our community. The IRS and the State of California have classified FSFACC as a nonprofit corporation, so donations are tax-deductible in most cases. Please join us or renew your membership today.
