FAAS Fund-Raiser at Tomatina

Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS) asks the community to support Dine & Donate at Tomatina, 1338 Park St.

The restaurant is generously giving 20% of food and beverage sales from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 23, to FAAS.

Diners are asked to bring a flyer from the FAAS website, if possible, to the restaurant.

FAAS took over responsibility for the Alameda Animal Shelter on Jan. 1, 2012, and organizers say it has made great progress toward its goal of making the shelter a safe haven for homeless animals and a resource for the community over the past year or so — thanks to generous fund-raising and other support.

For instance, more than 450 animals were adopted during 2012 — a 21% increase over the previous year.
