Tullahoma is just down the road from: Manchester, Winchester, Lynchburg & Shelbyville. We're approximately 65 miles south of Nashville. To get to Tullahoma from Nashville take I-24 East to Manchester / Hwy. 55. Exit West onto Hwy. 55 (Exit 111) and follow it on into Tullahoma.
The Tullahoma Animal Shelter is located at 942 Maplewood Avenue. From Hwy. 55 cross Jackson St at the bottom of the viaduct (headed away from Manchester). Turn left at 2nd street past Jackson St, which is Franklin. Turn right on 1st street, which is Coffee. As soon as you turn on Coffee, street forks and bear to left and you will be on Maplewood. Street dead-ends into large chain link fence. The Public Works Department office staff is located in the large metal building just to your left inside the fence; please stop by and let us know you are here to visit our shelter. The actual shelter is in the back of our parking lot and is a white concrete block building with a red roof. If you walk behind the shelter, you can see some of our dogs.
The Tullahoma Animal Shelter always has a great variety of dogs to choose from for adoption. The $10.00 adoption fee is minimal when compared to the years of joy a pet can offer your family. State law also requires a $25.00 deposit, refundable upon proof that the adopted pet has been neutered or spayed. Microchip identification is now available to all dogs adopted from the shelter. For a $10 or greater donation, you will receive a microchip to be implanted for free by Dr. Amy Nickels at the Pet Medical Center in Tullahoma. Pet alert fire decals are also available for a small donation. For more details, contact Teresa at 454-9580 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
