I have seen & heard nothing but great things about FCAR. They do so much to take care of so many animals. They make sure they are well taken care of, have food & medical, have a safe place to stay, & make sure they are placed in good homes withpeople who will love them & take care of them.

We got our CJ from FCAR in March 2014. We immediately took him to our own vet who reviewed his records. Our vet said there were very good records kept on him and that you could tell he was properly cared for during his year in this shelter. FCAR seems to do so much with so little. It's amazing how they know each animal and are in tune to their individual needs. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a dog or cat to love. Also would highly recommend them to anyone looking to volunteer to make a difference or anyone looking to donate and know that your dollars are going to to a great cause and would be used wisely.

I have seen nothing but loving people associated with this organization who are dedicated to helping animals find loving homes and in the meantime offer their assistance in taking care of them thru sponsors who open their homes until the permanent home is found. These animals are well cared for by veterinarians who assist in surgeries, and any medical needs necessary for the well being of the animal.

I received two puppies from FCAR. They were so kind and thoughtful not only to me but especially to the puppies. You could tell they loved the animals they care for. They were so helpful to me for months helping me sort out puppy issues such as eating and training. Love them!

I've been volunteering for FCAR for several years and coming from a large city, I had no idea what to expect with a smaller organization. From the first day, I was so impressed with the loving, caring, and compassionate people that run this rescue and how amazing they are with their rescues. A day doesn't go by that I don't see something else that reinforces my first instinct, that these people are Rock Stars! If a rescue stays a few weeks or a few years before being adopted, they are given all the love and attention they did not have in their previous life. FCAR takes in the abandoned, abused and sick and let me tell you, the world is a far better place with them in it. If someone spent a few hours at their shelter, they would see the difference FCAR makes in Fayette County and what a difference they make in every dog or cat's life they have saved.

From out of state. Stopped in for a visit. Was very impressed by the facilities but awed by the level of caring and care shown by the staff and volunteers.

I just recently started volunteering at FCAR. My daughter also goes with me and LOVES being able to play with the animals and give them treats. The staff and other volunteers are so nice and friendly. The animals are loved and well cared for. It is such a blessing to be a small part of such a wonderful organization!

Awesome place!!! With out FCAR many animals would never have the opportunity to feel love. I am so thankful we have them in my community. They rehabilitate and and find abandoned fur babies a forever home.

Fcar has been in the rescue world for over 20 years. Two women, Delores Cowan Provow and Yvette Rose started the first ever no kill animal rescue in Rossville, Tn. With several cages in both our garages to the beautiful sanctuary that it is today. Volunteers working tirelessly to rescue the sick, injured, abused, neglected and abandoned animals in Fayette County Tennessee without whose help we would not be able to care for the hundreds of animals over the years.

We moved to Fayette County in April 2013 and I have always wanted to get involved in the community and I thought what better way than to volunteer. I pondered the idea and reached out to Fayette County Animal Rescue and they welcomed me with open arms. I have been volunteering with them since January 2014 and can personally say that they are the best! from office work, events, cleaning the runs for the day or just sitting with a new rescue and assuring him/her that they will never be abused again is such a rewarding experience. FCAR really takes loves each and everyone of their rescues and I am proud to be a volunteer there.

I have been a client as well as a volunteer for Fayette County Animal Rescue for almost 6 years now. There is no nicer group of caring people people anywhere than at FCAR. Everyone loves the animals and cares for each of them as if they were their own pet. The grounds are well kept and most of all the runs are clean. The animals there are happy and each family is checked out before animal is adopted to them. We have two puppies from them now that are the love of our lives. Fayette County is very lucky to have this group of people to care for the our abused animals. I personally can not thank them enought for all they do.

I have been a volunteer with Fayette County Animal Rescue for 4+ years. I love going out to the rescue! All of the volunteers and staff are caring, selfless, friendly and they all love the animals in their care. The facility is a beautiful home for the animals that have been rescued. Being a no-kill rescue, there are some animals that have been there for years and others that stay for a short time until their furever home is found. No matter the length of their stay, you can tell they're happy to be in such a loving place.
Fayette County Animal Rescue is a non-profit that relies on donations of money, goods and volunteers to continue doing their amazing work. I will continue to volunteer as long as I am able and will do what I can to raise awareness for this wonderful animal rescue :)
