FOCAS Rescue & Transport Program
FOCAS helps coordinate rescue efforts with shelter staff members to place adoptable animals who are deemed to be especially difficult to place for reasons such as age, physical condition, size or breed. The
goal is to adopt them to a specialized rescue organization that will work with each animal individually to
place it into a permanent home. The transport of the animals is done by a member of the FOCAS rescue team.
