About Us

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 Provow were introduced by Dr. Sonya Bryan, a local vet who knew the two women had much in common. From two kennels in a garage to a shelter that houses over 100 animals in a sanctuary environment, their dedication and love of animals 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 into their lives.

Fayette County Animal Rescue is located in one of the largest counties in the State of Tennessee. Each month Animal Control picks up on the average 130 animals a month. All of these animals are euthanized after 72 hours. FCAR is the only  No-Kill, No Cages Animal Shelter in Fayette County.  

We have an annual budget of $100,000 to keep operational.  Your donations are very important to our mission.  With our spay/neuter policies we believe that among us all, we can bring an end to the killing of homeless pets within the next 10 years. Please join us in helping make this dream a reality
