Most Saturday mornings, Friends of the Palo Alto Animal Shelter set up a table across from the downtown Farmer’s Market. While normal Farmer’s Market hours are from 8 am to noon, you can find us between 9-11 am. We provide a safe spot for dogs to wait in the shade and lap some fresh water while their owners shop for fresh chard or nectarines. People we chat with are now becoming familiar with who we are and what we do, and many have signed up to join FoPAAS.

We listen to stories about animal rescue, answer questions, and encourage comments and suggestions. We also learn how positive people are about having a beautiful and generous city shelter, where animals are welcomed and made to feel safe and loved while waiting for new homes.

If you leave your dog with us while you shop, let us snap his photo as he shares our shady spot. Then, with your OK, we’ll post the photo on the FoPAAS website. Just look for “Farmer’s Market Goes to The Dogs.”

So please do stop by and visit us. Our A-Frame sign marks the spot. Encourage us, make suggestions, sign up as a FoPAAS member. If you have a skill or talent you would like to offer, sign up as a volunteer.  We are all volunteers ourselves and we share the same passion we hear expressed every Saturday morning.
