Community Cat Fund

The Community Cat Fund goes toward the program that helps manage the city’s cat population. The program uses a trap, neuter, and return method.

Dirt’s Animal Emergency Fund

This fund was established in the spring of 2005 in honor of Dirt, an Iraqi dog who befriended Lieu­tenant Colonel. Mark Crisci in 2004. Dirt became an unfortunate war casualty in January 2005 and Lt. Colonel Crisci donated i500 to FIACCFI in memory of his beloved friend and companion. Be asked that the money be used to assist animals in need of emergency surgery or that are otherwise faced with emergency situations.

Island Boy Comfort Fund

This fund is in memory of Island Boy Shinn, a best buddy of Mike Shinn, a FIACCFI founding board mem­ber and the current treasurer. It was established to help comfort animals at IACC. The fund recent-ly purchased Kuranda Beds. These elevated dog beds provide a soft, clean and dry sleeping spot in each kennel – better than the cement floor. It’s not just a fund for dogs. Much needed cat castles placed inside cages, allow cats covered sleeping areas as well as elevated lounging areas.



Lodge & Learn

This two-week program gives dogs a much-needed break from the shelter with customized training that improves their chances at adoption. Once adopted, the dog’s new family will receive a follow-up session to ensure a successful transition.

HOME Scholarship

The HOME scholarship improves the chances of successful new adoptions. Adopters of participating dogs receive a certificate ($150 value) for training by an IACS-approved trainer and a customized adoption bag ($50 value) that includes enrichment items and information on how to incorporate a dog into a new home.
