There are many ways to donate, and your donations are tax deductible! FOSRAS EIN #31-1814838

An important part of our FOSRAS mission is raising funds and collecting goods in support of the Somerset Regional Animal Shelter. The Cupid Fund is a special fund dedicated to helping our shelter animals that are in need of extraordinary medical treatment. Through your generous support of our Cupid Fund, we are able to provide such veterinary care prior to placing them into loving and caring homes.

FOSRAS is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, and all contributions go directly to providing care for the animals that end up at the shelter. We do not receive government funding nor are we affiliated with any national group. All support comes from the generosity of individuals like you.

To support our efforts, please make a tax-deductible donation today!

Make a one-time gift towards the care of our animals. You can choose where your donation goes, from the area of greatest need, our Cupid Fund, adoption sponsorship, and more.

Commit to helping the animals each month by setting up a recurring payment. Your automatic monthly gift will provide a consistent income stream for the animals under the shelter’s care.
