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 home...so 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.
Our adoption fees are $50 for cats > 6 months old, $90 for dogs > 6 months, $90 for kittens < 6 months, and $125 for puppies < 6 months.
The adoption fee for pedigree or full bred pets is $125 and up depending on the breed.

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