Fayette County Animal Shelter
Official page of FCAC. We take pride in our shelter. Our dedicated Officers care for the stray pets in our county and fight crime against animals.
It is our mission to build a community where our citizens all have the ability and tools they need to be responsible pet owners, and animals are a valued and respected part of our society.
We can achieve that goal through accountability, cooperation, safety, and communication.
We imagine a community where every animal has a loving home, and no longer need the support of rescue groups and shelters.
"It's not about animal rights, it's about human responsibility"....
Fayette County Animal Control is under new leadership.
We have a new approach to delivering animal care and control services that reflect the delicate balance that exists between animal welfare and control/enforcement.
It is our goal to reduce the dangers and nuisances to our citizens caused by irresponsible pet owners, while protecting pets from abuse, neglect, and homelessness. We will accomplish this through aggressive enforcement of animal ordinances and laws, and fastidious care and concern for the homeless animals under our care.
We are staffed by 5 dedicated, professional, and enthusiastic full time staff, and one part time kennel technician.
We maintain a strong relationship with the Fayette Humane Society and various rescue and animal welfare organizations in our area. We can't do it alone.
We serve all of Fayette County and its municipalities to pick up stray animals, investigate abuse and neglect, enforce animals laws and ordinances, and assist with dangerous animal situations. We also operate the county's only animal shelter, caring for over 50 stray pets a day, and working to find them caring, responsible new homes after their owners have abandoned them with us.
Watch for new volunteer opportunities and programs on the horizon!
