About Us

Our History

Incorporated in 1973, the Fayette Humane Society (FHS) is the oldest non-profit humane organization in Fayette County, Georgia. The FHS, staffed entirely by volunteers, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and is supported entirely by individual and corporate donations. Because we do not have a shelter, all of the animals we rescue live in temporary foster homes until they are adopted. We believe that all companion pets have intrinsic value and should be treated with the reverence and care they deserve.

Our Goals

The National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy’s most recent survey estimates that 64% of the total number of animals that enter shelters are euthanized. The FHS is dedicated to ending the needless suffering of unwanted pets through our aggressive spay and neuter program. In an effort to do our part to alleviate this pandemic, we offer discounted certificates for spay and neuter assistance to those who qualify and as funds permit. Prior to every adoption, we test, vaccinate, and spay or neuter all of our animals, or make arrangements to have them spayed or neutered, ensuring that they will not reproduce and add to this growing problem. Our ultimate goal is to find permanent loving homes for all of our rescued animals.  Our July 2016 save rate was 99.28%.

Adoptions

Our adoptions are held at PetSmart located at 2701 Highway 54, Peachtree City, Georgia every Saturday from 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. and every Sunday from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Additional adoptions are held throughout Fayette County from time to time. Check our Current Events section for those adoption locations and dates.
