Incorporated in 1973, the Fayette County Humane Society (FCHS) is the
oldest non-profit humane organization in Fayette County, Georgia. The
FCHS, staffed entirely by volunteers, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit
organization and is supported entirely by individual and corporate
donations. Because we do not have a shelter, all of the animals we
rescue live in temporary foster homes until they are adopted. We believe
that all companion pets have intrinsic value and should be treated with
the reverence and care they deserve.
The National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy’s most recent
survey estimates that 64% of the total number of animals that enter
shelters are euthanized. The FCHS is dedicated to ending the needless
suffering of unwanted pets through our aggressive spay and neuter
program. In an effort to do our part to alleviate this pandemic, we
offer discounted certificates for spay and neuter assistance to those
who qualify and as funds permit. Prior to every adoption, we test,
vaccinate, and spay or neuter all of our animals, or make arrangements
to have them spayed or neutered, ensuring that they will not reproduce
and add to this growing problem. Our ultimate goal is to find permanent
loving homes for all of our rescued animals.
Our adoptions are held at PetSmart located at 2701 Highway 54, Peachtree
City, Georgia every Saturday from 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. and every
Sunday from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Additional adoptions are held
throughout Fayette County from time to time. Check our Current Events
Section for those adoption locations and dates.
The Fayette County Humane Society is dedicated to
ending the needless suffering of unwanted pets through our aggressive
spay/neuter program. The fewer breedable animals in the community,
the fewer unwanted litters we have. We are dedicated to rescuing
homeless animals in the community. We test, vaccinate and go one
step further by having all our adoption pets spayed or neutered (or make
arrangements for spaying/neutering) prior to adoption, ensuring they
will not reproduce and add to the over population problem.
