Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.

Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

The Tennessee Humane Animal League is a 501(c)3 organization devoted to the placement of homeless or surrendered animals through The Pet Placement Center (PPC). The PPC survives entirely on donations and fundraising activities.

We are a no kill animal adoption center which means we have very limited space. Once an animal comes to the Pet Placement Center, it will remain with us until it is adopted into a responsible permanent we often have to turn people away due to lack of space. The PPC is a private adoption center and does not do animal control or do animal pick ups.

We are located in Chattanooga area toward Soddy Daisy and near Highway 153.

About Our Shelter:

The Pet Placement Center not only saves animals to adopt to good homes, but also works with local rescuers to assist with the trap-neuter-release of feral cat colonies. We also provide pet food, litter, and other supplies for low income pet owners & other rescue organizations in need.

Come Meet our Pets:

We are open Wednesday - Sunday 12 - 5 PM.
The shelter is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Our Adoption Process:

All potential adoptions are carefully screened by submitting an application for approval. This is to ensure proper placement of each of our animals in a permanent home.

The adoption fee includes a free veterinary exam within 2 weeks of adoption at local participating vets, up to date vaccinations, FELV/FIV test (cats), heartworm test & preventative (dogs), flea preventative, dewormer, microchip, & spay or neuter.

All animals are spayed/neutered before being placed up for adoption.

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
