Pets at Our Shelter:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:We function as an animal control facility and shelter for the city of Newport and Cocke County, receiving animals from both Newport and Cocke County Animal Control Officers.
If you reside out of county, a veterinary referral is required, so please have your local vet's phone number available.
About Our Shelter:Our employees are all animal lovers who care for the shelter pets just like you do for your family pets. We also have several wonderful volunteers who help with various duties at the shelter.
Our Adoption Process:Adoption Fees (Cash, check, or money order only):
Adoption fees include: A physical performed by a local veterinarian that includes a fecal check for worms, spay or neuter surgery, a microchip for identification, and first round of shots for rabies, distemper and parvo, and a heartworm test for dogs. You will pick up your new buddy from the shelter the day of surgery.
Once you locate a companion, the following will occur: We require you to visit the shelter, meet the pet that you are interested in, be interviewed, fill out the adoption contract, and pay the adoption fees with cash, check or money order.
You will be asked a few questions about your history dealing with animals, your source of income to provide for the pet, and be required to thoroughly read and complete our contract. All applications will be considered, however, we reserve the right to refuse any adoption.
If you are planning to adopt from our shelter and reside out of state, you must visit the pet at the shelter and also be interviewed by a shelter employee. A veterinary referral is required, so please bring your local vet's phone number. Adoption process is same as above, so keep in mind that you will be required to pick up your new buddy from a local Newport veterinary after surgery.
And don't forget - cash or check only!
