FOTSI’s goals are to find animals loving, lifelong homes, educate the public on spay/neuter clinics and help reunite lost and found pets with their owners. Our adoption center in downtown Vinton houses our adoptable cats, offers information on low cost spay/neuter clinics in the area, and has pet merchandise to help recoup some of our expenses.
