In 1998, two women decided to make a difference in the lives of the many animals that were suffering needlessly in Fayette County. Yvette Rose and Delores Cowan Provow began with two kennels in a garage and Fayette County Animal Rescue has now grown to a shelter that houses 70-100 animals in a sanctuary environment on 5 acres.  The dedication and love for animals by these two ladies, and the will to make a difference in their community, spawned one of the largest no-kill organizations in the Mid South area.


Heartbreaking years of struggle for these two founding members have given hope and a new life to thousands of animals that would have died needlessly on the rural roads of Fayette County. Their friendship and loving bond continues today for their life long mission of making a difference for all the needy animals that come to FCAR.  Our shelter is now supported by hundreds of volunteers, all working tirelessly for the animals.  


Fayette County Animal Rescue is located in the third largest county in the State of Tennessee. Each month Animal Control picks up on the average 130 animals. All of these animals are euthanized after 72 hours. FCAR is the only No-Kill, No Cages Animal Shelter in Fayette County. Your donations are very important to our mission. We believe we can make a difference in our community and the animals that live here.  Please join us in helping make this dream a reality.
