Adoptions

Fairmount Pet Shoppe is committed to saving pets' lives. We work with several shelters and rescue groups to find loving families for homeless pets. We always have cats for adoption at the shop from rescue groups including, Green Street Rescue in Fairmount. We also have regular adoption events where a larger number of pets are available including cats and dogs, and sometimes bunnies. The dates of these adoption events will be announced on our home page. If you are thinking of adding a pet to your life, think adoption first!

Adopt and Save

We want to thank you for saving a pet's life, so for every pet adopted at Fairmount Pet Shoppe you will save 15% off your first purchase. If you have adopted a pet from another location such as a shelter or rescue group, we still want to thank you! Bring in proof of adoption and you will save 15% off one purchase. We have all the supplies you need for your new pet including carriers, crates, litter boxes, beds, bowls, and food.
