Friends of Parkville Animal Shelter

Founded in 1999 by a group of concerned citizens, FOPAS’s primary mission is to humanely house, care for, provide medical treatment for, and find permanent homes for the abandoned and stray dogs and cats from Platte, Clay and, to some extent, surrounding counties which have come under our care. The work of the organization is carried out almost exclusively by dedicated volunteers and is financed through donations and fund raising events. FOPAS believes that our entire community is benefited by the compassion and humanity shown in caring for animals which have been discarded. The animals cannot speak for themselves, so hopefully FOPAS speaks and acts for them. FOPAS is a 501(c)(3) organization.

Our shelter is located at:
1356 NW Hwy 9
Parkville, MO 64152

We believe our entire community benefits from the compassion and humanity shown in caring for animals who have been discarded.
