FOCCAS will be having a $10 microchip clinic on December 29th from 9AM-3PM at the new PetSmart in Cookeville. We ask that all pets either be on a leash or in a carrier and be AT LEAST 8 weeks of age. The chips have a free lifetime registration with free lifetime updates. No Fees EVER after the $10. You do not have to be a local resident to participate. No limit to the number of animals you can bring. If you would like to feel out our registration form in advance(one required per pet)
Turning the page on calendar productions for pet welfare, Barry Brown Images has now produced a new 2019 issue of Pinups for Pets, this time to wholly benefit FOCCAS. We work alongside rescue groups to encompass all efforts of rescue in addition to supporting the Cumberland County Animal Shelter. All photography and modeling have been done on a non-paid, volunteer status, so proceeds (expect printing) will benefit pet welfare through FOCCAS.
Ever since the late 1800’s, pinup art (designed to be “pinned up” on the wall) has helped encourage military service people and promote public fund-raising in wartime (think Rosie the Riveter), decorate military aircraft as “nose art”, informally brighten the day for employees in the labor force, and sell products through hard-copy published advertising (think Kelly and Pro-Trac tires). In those first decades, the models were considered inspiring female patriots; and among the most famous were the “Gibson Girls.” Posters drawn by such artist as Elvgren, Olmstead and Vargas covered walls in recruiting offices, garages and barber shops. Transitioning to the 21st Century, we are happy to feature beloved rescue pets and attractive female and male models, as well, in our calendar to bring the fund of pinup art to all and benefit pet welfare at the same time.

Building a safe, healthy and humane facility for the Cumberland County Animal Shelter is our most urgent task. As the world continues to evolve in its understanding of and compassion for the suffering of animals, FOCCAS plans to lead the way in seeing that evolution come to pass in our community

Have you ever had a pet, past or present that you were grateful for? One that showed you what loyality was all about…or unconditional love? Maybe you had a pet that helped you cope with a truly difficult time.
You can memorialize your pet by buying a tile for the Wall of Gratitude and contribute to the FOCCAS building project at the same time.
We envision the walls of the new facility being lined with the pictures and names of pets that got the happy ending that our shelter pets are all hoping for.
We have two sizes available for purchase, 8” x 8” or 4 ¼” x 4 ¼ “. You can choose to have a picture of your pet or a text only tile with your pets name and a special message. Prices range from $25 to $85. Digital pictures work best and may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org .
A photograph may be used, but remember, the better the pictue, the better your tile will look.
