Gardenia E. Janssen Animal Shelter was formed in 1994 as Fayette County Animal Shleter. The current facility was built in 2000, in large part, thanks to a generous donation from Gardenia E. Janssen. In 2008, the Shelter was renamed in her honor. The Shelter works with Fayette County & the cities within the county in sheltering animals from the the area.
