Fayette County Animal Rescue is located on 5 beautiful acres in Rossville, TN. We have a small indoor facility that consists of 4 isolation rooms, 12 indoor/outdoor runs, a bathing area for the animals, a bathroom, washer/dryer and storage. The vast majority of our shelter is made up of large outdoor yards. Most outdoor yards contain a carport to provide shelter from the weather in addition to their dog houses. Each yard also has a swimming pool in the summer, they all have Kuranda beds for the dogs to lay on and all have metal benches for visitors who come to socialize the dogs. All regular facility maintenance is handled by volunteers.
We have been in our facility for almost 18 years and our shelter has begun to show its age. Historically we have spent all of our budget directly on the animals and patched the shelter as needed. We were blessed in 2013 to receive a large
donation specifically for shelter renovations and repairs. We used that money to complete a mini-renovation. In Fall 2013 we had all leaks, rotten/chewed wood, holes, etc. repaired inside the shelter. We installed more durable materials such as tile, hardiboard, metal sleeves, etc. to improve the durability of the facility. We expanded our storage, trim/removed trees, installed new fencing and more. In 2015 we continued our renovation and completely tore down and replaced 15 outdoor yards with heavy duty fencing. We love the calming environment our shelter provides our rescues and the comforting experience it provides them.
Although our shelter is beautiful we do still have renovation projects that need to be funded. Click here for additional information.
The video below of our shelter was taken in 2008, prior to a significant amount of renovation. A new video is coming soon however we wanted to keep this here so you can see the growth of our facility over the past few years. We would love to give you a personal tour of our amazing facility.
