Thank You!


Thank you for your interest in adopting from Fayette County Animal Rescue. We will contact you for next steps in processing your application.

*If you do not hear from us within 24 hours please check your spam folder. We generally communicate via email and sometimes our email routes to junk mail. If you do not receive an email please email us at or call us at 901-854-2565.

Next steps (your help with these will speed up the application process!):

  • Call your veterinarians that you have used for the past 5 years. We verify 
    that all of your pets have been kept current on vaccinations and heartworm prevention. If you used different vets or online to purchase heartworm prevention please gather all of the info to send to us. *This is the #1 delay preventing applications from being approved quickly!

  • If you are renting/leasing, make sure your landlord approves of you adopting the type, size & breed animal you are interested in and will be responsive when we call. Even if your landlord is a family member we will still call to verify so a timely response speeds things up! Make sure that you fully understand any size or breed restrictions and pet deposits and fees.

  • If adopting a dog, please email pictures and video of your fenced backyard, showing the entire fence all the way around the yard, top to bottom. Walk slowly and show us the entire fence and gates. Email to

  • If adopting a cat, please email pictures or video of where you plan to keep the litter box and where you plan to keep food & water. Email to

  • If you are not local to the Memphis area and will require transport for the animal, please read our transport information.

We are excited about working with you to find a forever home for our rescues!
