Due to an error with the electronic filing of our tax returns, our 501(c)3 tax-exempt status was revoked by the IRS as of May 15, 2014.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 there, my name is Echo. I am a very cute, tiny puppy girl. I am full of zest for life; I love everyone, I crave attention, love and commitment. If you are interested in having a lively puppy bouncing around your home, a puppy who looks at you with love and adoration and who lives for your company, then come and adopt me!

I am a very smart little girl and I promise to be a fast learner and to do my best to please you. Come on, how about it, I am sure that we will have a wonderful life together! I will only be about 20 pounds when I am all grown up, how about that, just right!

Hello, my name is Lace. I am a beautiful soft, gray tabby with extra toes! That is called a Polydactyl, sometimes referred to as a "Hemingway." I am really friendly and love to talk and purr to my people.

I am only 4 months old and ready to have my very own home to share with my very own people. I will do my best to keep you entertained, happy and in love with me.

Please come to see me soon.

Love, Purrs, and Pats,

Hello, my name is Pocono. I am a very sweet girl, my coloring is very special; gray tabby with my stripes blending into a unique pattern that looks soft like rabbit fur.

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!
