We are the non-profit volunteers operating the Cedaredge, Colorado Animal Shelter. The Shelter is an adoption guaranteed facility. Our intake is focussed on the Surface Creek Valley of Delta County Colorado.
FCAC has founded in 2001 and worked with the Town of Cedaredge to provide a no kill animal shelter through 2010. In 2011 FCAC took over the operations of the Shelter.Cedaredge has about 2000 residents. We are the only no kill shelter in Delta County. Voluteers walk the dogs daily and spend time cuddling the cats. We have a foster kitten program to keep kittens healthy and cuddly. Often we have barn cats available when free roaming cats can't be tamed to household living. Our dogs come to us as strays and through relinquishment. They are often lively guys in need of love and manners!! We have 7 dog runs.
Come Meet our Pets:
We participate in Petsmart Adoption Days at the Grand Junction Colorado store. The Shelter is open Monday through Friday from 3pm to 6pm. On week-ends hours are 8am - 11am and 3pm-5pm. Or call 970-856-2346 or 970-640-4907 to make an appointment. Other adoption events happen throughout the year.
Our Adoption Process:
We do not require contracts nor home visits. Our process is based on knowing our dogs and cats and matching them to people looking for life long companions. Fees vary from a minimum of $50 for cats and $65 for dogs
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.
