Due to an error with the electronic filing of our tax returns, our 501(c)3 tax-exempt status was revoked by the IRS as of May 15, 2014.

FCHS is in the process of having its tax exemption reinstated retroactive to May 15, 2014. Until the IRS issues its ruling, the donations made after that date are not deductible. If the IRS grants retroactive reinstatement, all donations will be deductible in accordance with tax law. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may present.               Click Here To Continue

Hi, my name is Duke. I am a very cute 6 month old boy. I am part Lab and maybe some border collie. I only weigh about 35 pounds and am mostly grown.

I had a good home, but my people had to move and could not take me with them. I really miss them they had me since I was a little puppy. I would like it if I could find a new home with someone who will be able to keep me my whole life. I am a really good boy, even my other people said so; they said that I am both house and crate trained, good with other dogs, cats, and children. I walk very well on a leash, I listen well, I am smart and I know sit, give my paw and stay on command.

Please consider adopting me and making the commitment to take good care of me for the rest of my life. I will do my very best to be a wonderful companion for you, treat me right and I will treat you like you are made of gold.

Love and Licks,

Hello, my name is Frosty, like the snowman! Ha Ha! I am a really big, chubby all white 2 year old fellow. I mostly like to lie around and snooze. I do like to get up and walk around the place, stalking any dangers that may be lurking behind the couch, etc. Then after a long days work, I like to receive lots of "good boy" talk and lots of petting.

I am a very nice boy and I think I should be brushed a lot so that my gorgeous snow white fur won't be a problem with the furniture. The bonding that takes place when brushing me is well worth the effort. As a matter of fact, the small effort that it takes to have an animal companion is so small compared to the euphoria that comes with having an animal companion.

Please come to see me so we can become lifelong friends.

Purrs, Pats and Love,

Hello, my name is Ozzie. I am a very handsome, loving, well behaved and wonderful 1 year old Black Lab. I am also very smart, get along with other dogs, love people and feel that I can be a wonderful companion for someone looking for a lifelong relationship with a dog. I would like to go for walks, car rides, camping, swimming, just about anything that you like to do, I will like too!

Please come to the shelter to take me for a walk and see if you think that I am as good as I think I am. I bet you will agree!

Love and Kisses,

Did you know each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are born in the U.S. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all of these animals. Please Spay and Neuter your pets, and help save lives and end needless suffering of these pets. We offer low-cost options for altering your pets.


Did you know?

We have cats and kittens for adoption at the Arnold PetSmart.. These cats are housed at here so that they can get more visibility in the community, and have better chances at finding their forever homes!

Our dogs travel every Saturday to area PetSmarts and Petcos with our mobile adoptions.

This helps get these pups more visibility in the community, and gives them more of a chance at finding their forever homes. Please check our calendar for locations!
