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.

Update: This cat has been adopted.

Age: 1-2 Years

Other pets: Better as a solo cat

Sunshine loves chasing tin foil balls and watching the squirrels. She is cuddly on her terms – chin scratches make her blissed out, and she’ll rub against your feet if you’re sitting down, but no belly scratches allowed or she will pounce. She’s got a relaxed and easy-going demeanor that is as warm and welcoming as a sunny day. Interested in meeting this lovely lady? Stop in today!

These two little guys are so friendly, you’d never guess they were born on the street at 19th and Brandywine! With distinct markings to tell them apart, Cornflake looks like a bowl of cereal & milk, while Cornbread is a bit more orange all over. These fiery fellas would absolutely love to cuddle up in your arms and play games all around your apartment. Cornflake in particular loves to get into hard-to-reach places, which also explains the bike grease that we’re having trouble cleaning off his back! Come meet the Corn Brothers today! 🌽

Mee our Adoptables: Pinot – ADOPTED

Posted on: Monday, July 11th, 2022

UPDATE: Pinot has been ADOPTED! Meet Pinot! This sweet man is looking for his forever home after being rescued from Penn Ave by the Art Museum. He’s a chatty fellow who loves to meow for attention and affection. Pinot is a smooth talker who may just meow his way into your heart. He has spent time with other cats but seems to enjoy the company of humans over cats so we think he’d do best in a home where he can be a solo kitty. Looking for a chatty and furry friend? Then look no further and stop in today to meet this sweet fellow today!

He needs a loving home with lots of cozy nooks, gentle cuddles, and yummy food.

Meet Our Adoptables: Duffy – ADOPTED

UPDATE: Duffy has been adopted
Age: 3-4 years

Sex: Female

Other pets: Tolerates other cats

Meet your new gray friend, Duffy! When she was rescued outdoors by Green Street Rescue, she had already been previously spayed. We don’t know what her whole past life could have involved, but we do know that she  is comfortable around humans and has been enjoying her time indoors. Duffy has one funny quirk – she’s a very messy eater! She loves to move her food out of the bowl onto the floor, then eat it from there. She’s looking for a home that can forgive her oddities.
