The Fayette Humane Society strives to eliminate the needless killing of healthy, adoptable pets. We provide temporary foster care for homeless cats and dogs found as strays or surrendered by their owners. All pets we adopt out are vaccinated and spayed or neutered. Most are also microchipped. As funds permit, we provide spay/neuter assistance for low-income pet owners in an effort to reduce animal overpopulation. The Fayette Humane Society supports TNVR (Trap/Neuter/Vaccinate/Return) as the best method of controlling the community cat population.

The FHS aggressively promotes spay/neuter as well as proper care and respect for animals. We provide education about the problem of pet overpopulation and the fact that cats and dogs can breed when they are as young as four months old. Unaltered companion animals, especially cats, can reproduce exponentially, and as a result, millions end up euthanized in shelters or killed on the highways because there are not enough homes. We recently began partnering with other rescue groups and shelters to transport homeless animals from Georgia to northern states where the demand is greater.

We have many dedicated volunteers who are committed to rescuing and caring for homeless animals until they can be placed with loving families. We also realize we cannot solve pet overpopulation through adoption alone, so we work to promote spay/neuter for all companion pets in the community. We are also reaching out to rescue groups in northern states where cold winters and stricter spay/neuter laws have limited puppy and kitten births.

Our efforts will be successful when intake numbers at our organization and the local animal shelter are reduced and all healthy intakes have a live outcome.

The FHS partners with the Fayette County Commissioners, other animal rescue organizations, and Fayette County Animal Control to spread the word about spay/neuter and puppy mills. We successfully completed a trial TNR program and are now working with FCAC to rewrite local ordinances to make TNR protocol (instead of the traditional policy of trap and euthanize). We plan to become more involved in transporting homeless animals to areas where the pet demand is greater.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
