The Friends of the Manchester Animal Shelter (FMAS) is a nonprofit, NO-KILL shelter dedicated to rescuing abused, abandoned and neglected animals in the city of Manchester. We believe all animals are deserving of life, respect and care, and our goal is zero-population-growth through spay/neuter programs and services that focus on education, medical care, fostering and adoption. Since the inception of FMAS in 1996, we have provided shelter and food, medical care, spay/neuter and new homes to over 17,000 animals.
