Pet Pantry

Pet food is available to families in financial crisis who are having difficulty feeding their cats and dogs. Pantry hours are any time during normal business hours, 9:30 am to 1:30 pm, Monday & Wednesday; 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm Tuesday & Thursday.  We partner with Manna Food Bank in Asheville, NC who supply us with most of our pet food to be donated.  We also welcome food donations from individuals and other companies.  Ingles has donated dog and cat food to our cause as well. 

Low Cost Spay/Neuter

Every other Wednesday is an opportunity for residents of Madison County to get low cost spay/neutering for their cats and dogs. Call  828-649-9798 for an appointment, and plan to spend fifteen minutes going through a registration process over the phone.

Call during office hours (Monday and Wednesday 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM; Tuesday and Thursday 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM; Closed Friday) for more information or to register your cat or dog.

Educational Programs

FOMCA has been a part of the “Read to Me Program” with our canine friends in the libraries and schools - but also have been teaching Humane Education in the Elementary Schools, the High School and now the Middle School in Madison County since 2012. We partner with our canine good citizen dog and teach the students all about how to be kind and respect their 4 legged friends.  A big thank you to Dr. Ronald Wilcox, Superintendent of Madison County Schools and Frances Ramsey, retired teacher for all your help!  We want to thank the Madison County Schools  for their warm welcome and look forward to adding to our curriculum and having guest teachers as well.  If you are interested in becoming part of our Humane Education teams please contact our office 828-649-9798.
