Friends of the Emporia Animal Shelter

Specific Need

Friends of the Emporia Animal Shelter (FEAS) is a small group of volunteers dedicated to making the lives of unwanted, unloved animals better.  Simply put, that is what we strive to do.  We think every animal is special and we need your donation to help them.  Our biggest expense by far is medical.  In addition, we financially support the needs of the shelter animals beyond food and shelter, help other local rescues, and community animals.  Please help us help them!


To improve the lives and welfare of shelter and community animals.


FEAS was formed in 2013 as an animal welfare organization.  We are a small group of big-hearted, hard-working individuals that love animals.  FEAS is run strictly by volunteers & donations.


Most donations are used for medical care which is the biggest expense.  FEAS pays almost all the medical costs for the animals at the Shelter so no animal goes untreated.  Other monies are used to purchase items such as special beds and toys to assure the animals are comfortable and happy during their stay at the shelter.  We partially fund a Rescue Position to guarantee animals from the shelter and Purralot Kitty Rescue get into appropriate no-kill rescues to help find them warm and loving homes.  FEAS helps to educate the public about TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) programs to reduce the feral community cat population.  Our pilot TNR program was a success and we altered over 40 feral cats from one colony.  With additional funds and manpower we hope to do more in the future.  We are proud to have purchased kitten/puppy incubators for both Emporia Animal Shelter & Purralot Kitty Rescue for the babies that arrive as orphans.  Pet specific oxygen masks have been supplied to the Fire Department, children's books to the library and with the help of others, awnings were constructed over the dog runs, music was piped through the shelter to reduce animal stress and anxiety and the shelter ventilation system was upgraded to reduce the spread of disease.  Low cost micro chipping events are held twice a year to ensure all lost animals have the opportunity to find their way home.


FEAS welcomes anyone that wants to join us and help in any or all areas of our mission.  We will continue to take care of the animals of Emporia and Lyon County with your help.  Your donations ensure all of our animals are well cared for, receive the medical care they need and increase the probability of finding them forever homes.  We will continue to do all we can for as long as we can because every animal deserves to be loved and cared for.


We are a separate entiy from the Humane Society, Animal Shelter & Buck Fund but all strive for the same goal...the humane treatment of all animals!
