We service the tri-county area of Berks, Chester and Lancaster Counties. Other areas are welcome by appointment.
Fairchild's mission is to improve the lives of feral and stray cats in Berks county through TNVR (Trap/Neuter/Vaccinate/Return) as well as helping to reduce the homeless cat population. We also wish to educate the community that TNVR is the most humane way to deal with the over-population crisis and it is the most cost-efficient. Through TNVR we can reduce the number of unwanted homeless cats in our shelters and end the cycle of trap and kill. During a TNVR project we sometimes find friendly cats that have been abandoned by their owners; most have wonderful personalities and are ideal adoption candidates!
Fairchild Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, entirely supported by private donations and grants. We do not receive support from state, federal, or local government. No donation is considered too small. We appreciate every contribution. Your donations are tax deductible.
We are not a shelter - all of our animals are fostered by individual volunteers. An application may be required; it typically includes personal and vet references (if applicable). Adoption fees are dependent upon the age, type and breed of animal. All of our volunteers work full-time jobs so it may take several days for us to respond to inquiries - your patience is appreciated!
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.
