The Fayette SPCA is a non-profit organization organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes including the prevention of cruelty to animals. Our main goals are to care and shelter homeless animals, relieve the suffering among animals from any source, provide humane education, and the enforcement of the Animal Protection Laws of Pennsylvania.
We want the smoothest transition and positive outcome for both the animal and the adoptive family, so we have set forth the following guidelines for Fayette SPCA adoptions:
* You must be 18 years of age or older to adopt an animal.
* All family members are in agreement about the adoption.
* You are not adopting the animal for someone else or as a gift.
* If you currently have pets, you must currently have a veterinarian and provide us their phone number.
* If you rent you need to have the written approval of your landlord stating that you can have the pet.
* Dog adoption fees begin at $100 and up, depending on the dog, of which you get $30 back after you provide a veterinarian certificate that the dog has been spayed or neutered, if it has not already been done prior to adoption. All animals leaving the shelter must be spayed or neutered. Adopters must sign a legally binding contract stating that spaying or neutering will be done within the timeframe set forth by the Fayette SPCA. Failure to have the pet spayed or neutered can result in confiscation of the pet and possible prosecution by the Fayette SPCA.
* The Fayette SPCA reserves the right to refuse any adoption for any reason them deem feasible.
You can expedite your adoption process by downloading and completing our ADOPTION AGREEMENT and SPAY/NEUTER AGREEMENT prior to coming into the shelter. These can be downloaded from our web site at www.fayettespca.com

About the pets
posted 6 years ago
i went into the shelter not long ago. I was interested in one of the older dogs that was there. It was a male i would say about a year old if not older. They didn't know much about him or have a general idea of what he was. After i got all the information i could het about him i asked how much the adpotion fee would be. To my suprise he was $150. I understand that they mostly all their shots and some have been spayed or nuetured but why so much? Most people don't have that much to spend on a dog. This is why we have so many dogs and puppies still living in the shelter. I also understand they need to buy supplies for these animals. I can remeber when they cost only $30 for a mixed breed and $60 for a pure breed. Why has the price changed? I mean why spend so much money on a dog that no one wants? I'm not trying to be rude by saying this but its true. I think it should just go back to what it was. When the cost was low and you had to take it to the vet within 48 hours. I think if it went back to this less aniamls would have to sit in the shelter and wish for someone to give them the love and affection they need.
Cons: cost and lost of aniamls

Adopting a kitten
posted 7 years ago
I recently adopted a kitten I named Roxy. She is a black calico. The staff made sure I knew when low cost shots and spay was being offered by the SPCA, so I could get my kitten everything she needed. I got my kitten in July and by September they made sure she had everything she needed! They truly are dedicated to each and every animal. They are exeptional group of people.
Pros: Dedicated to all the animals
Cons: Needs more funding
