AmazonSmile Wish List

Amazon has introduced AmazonSmile, a simple and automatic way for you to support FOTAS every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate .05% of the purchase price to FOTAS.

To shop at AmazonSmile, simply go to www.smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device.

On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you need to select Friends of the Animal Shelter to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. The system will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make on AmazonSmile will result in a donation.

You’ll always need to start from smile.amazon.com when making purchases for FOTAS to receive a donation.

FOTAS has set up two Wish Lists … one for cats and one for dogs on Amazon.com.

Once you have your AmazonSmile account set up, then “go shopping” on our Wish Lists by clicking on a link below.  Not only will you provide us with the supplies you need, but FOTAS will also get a percentage of your donation … a little double-dipping never hurt!

Friends of the Animal Shelter (FOTAS) is a non-profit organization that was formed in 1990 to support the programs of the Jackson County Animal Shelter. Our vision is for all adoptable animals at the Jackson Country Animal Shelter to find a loving home. Our mission is to recruit and train volunteers who will save lives by increasing pet adoptions at the Jackson Country Animal Shelter, improve the quality of life for the Shelter’s animals, promote spay and neuter, and facilitate outreach and educational activities about the humane treatment of companion animals throughout Jackson County. Our values are: Service, Compassion and Generosity.
