FICAS is excited to announce a new project we launched in January, 2006, that we hope will
make a noticeable impact on intake #'s at the shelter. Sadly, there
are too many animals that are being taken into the shelter and not enough caring & loving homes for them. FICAS feels
that fighting pet overpopulation is the key to success!
Our project is called the "Angel Project". Named after a mother cat, Angel, who came into the
shelter last summer with her 6 baby kittens, given up by owners who could not afford to care for the little family. Owners
often realize too late that they do not have the resources to get one beloved pet sterilized let alone the resources to care
for an entire family of pets.
Through the Angel Project, FICAS plans to spay/neuter 1,000 dogs and cats for low-income
Ingham County residents. We plan to enlist local Veterinarians, businesses & donors to assist in this effort. We have
a lot of work ahead of us to make this project a success and we need your help!

UPDATE AUGUST 2007: The Angel Project has completed over 700 surgeries! We are planning to
continue this program as long as the funds are available.
