Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Shelter hours are 12 Noon to 4 PM Monday through Friday
12 Noon to 3 PM Saturdays
and closed on Sundays and Holidays.
We want the smoothest transition and positive outcome for both the animal and the adoptive family, so we have set forth the following guidelines for Fayette SPCA adoptions:
* You must be 18 years of age or older to adopt an animal.
* All family members are in agreement about the adoption.
* You are not adopting the animal for someone else or as a gift.
* If you currently have pets, you must currently have a veterinarian and provide us their phone number.
* If you rent you need to have the written approval of your landlord stating that you can have the pet.
* Dog adoption fees begin at $50 and up, depending on the dog, of which you get $30 back after you provide a veterinarian certificate that the dog has been spayed or neutered, if it has not already been done prior to adoption. All animals leaving the shelter must be spayed or neutered. Adopters must sign a legally binding contract stating that spaying or neutering will be done within the timeframe set forth by the Fayette SPCA. Failure to have the pet spayed or neutered can result in confiscation of the pet and possible prosecution by the Fayette SPCA.
* The Fayette SPCA reserves the right to refuse any adoption for any reason them deem feasible.
You can expedite your adoption process by downloading and completing our ADOPTION AGREEMENT and SPAY/NEUTER AGREEMENT, both available for download from www.fayettespca.com, prior to coming into the shelter.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
