Friends of Fayette County Animal Shelter believes we need to raise awareness of Fayette County’s need for a new, updated animal shelter and we are committed to raising funds to start building with urgent action. As one of the fastest growing counties in Tennessee, and with more and more peoples moving to our area, the problem of stray, lost, or abandoned animals will only increase. We must have a facility where we can house and take care of animals until they are reunited with their families and, also, to give stray, adoptable animals a second chance for the life they deserve. Please join us by supporting our efforts to make a measurable difference in the lives of the animals and their owners in our county.
Friends of Fayette County Animal Shelter is committed to establishing an animal AND people friendly shelter that involves promoting adoption of homeless animals, raises community awareness of adoptable animals, and helps teach responsible pet ownership in Fayette County, Tennessee. A 5 acre tract of land has been dedicated for building an animal shelter by the Fayette County Commission. It is located in Somerville next to the Criminal Justice Complex. Our mission now is to raise money through various fundraising events and donations to move forward with building a new shelter. We strive to make Fayette County a better place for both pets and pet owners. Explore our website to learn more about what we are doing, and what you can do, to help make a positive difference in our beautiful county. We are a dedicated 501-c-3, non-profit organization.
We are always diligently fundraising in an effort to attain our $65k fundraising goal for 2017. Through our work over the last couple of months, we have received several direct donations, a sizable grant as well as raised money through a Facebook fundraising campaign.

November 1, 2017 - We attended the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce luncheon to present Fayette County Skip Taylor with our second donation of 2017. We presented a check for $8,000
November 3, 2017 - We were contacted by a donor who wishes to remain anonymous, that they would match all donations from now until December 15 up to $25,000. (This has been extended)
November 12, 2017 - We partnered with Stockdales by adding donation barcodes at the check out registers so that customers can donate right at the register and the donation will be added to their total. Donations are paid when you pay your bill by what ever payment means you prefer.
December 31, 2017 - We completed a fundraising campaign which raised $35,000. This brought our 2017 fundraising total to $55,000.

Make a Difference
We wouldn’t be able to raise funds for the Fayette County Animal Shelter Building Fund without the generous contributions from donors. Your support has the power to make a difference. Funds raised by Friends of Fayette County Animal Shelter is given to the county to be deposited directly to the Animal Shelter Building Fund. A very small part is used to advertise so we can touch as many people as possible with information about our group and raise awareness and support for our mission. All of your support goes towards making a difference, so every penny counts. We look forward to working together and changing the world.
