About Our Shelter:NOAH'S ARC is a nonprofit 501c (3), "NO-KILL", animal rescue organization founded in 1991, as an alternative to animal shelters. We have grown from 6 members to over 400 in and out of Tennessee. We are funded solely from donations and fundraisers with 100% of money raised going directly to improving the health and lives of rescued animals. Since 1991, we have placed over 4,000 rescue animals, (many with handicaps or special needs), into quality, loving homes. The purposes of Noah's Arc have expanded to encompass the rescue of abandoned, abused, injured or impaired animals; providing medical attention; finding foster or permanent homes for the animals; educating the local public regarding pet overpopulation; and providing low or no cost spaying/neutering of ARC animals and community pets. NOAH'S ARC animals are housed at our Dog Harbor and Cat Haven locations. Animals are also fostered in various homes in and around the Morristown, TN area. If you are interested in seeing any of our pets, appointments can be made with our adoption coordinator Susan Widener (423) 586-2293. Pets are shown by appointment only.
Come Meet our Pets:We encourage visits from the public. Not only do the animals enjoy the company, but also visitation with our animals promotes community awareness of the number of homeless and unwanted pets we have in our area. Please call for an appointment to visit and meet any of our pets. Most of our dogs are located at the NOAH'S ARC Dog Harbor, and cats reside at the Cat Haven Facility. Special appointments can also be made to meet the animals that are in foster care. Most of our pets are fostered in the Morristown, and Jefferson City, TN areas. Our pets are looking forward to meeting YOU! Morristown is located approximately 25 miles northeast of Knoxville; TN. Exact directions will be given at the time an appointment is scheduled.
Our Adoption Process:ADOPTING THAT "FOREVER" FRIEND
NOAH'S ARC has many wonderful dogs and cats in need of good homes. Our adoption donation for both dogs and cats is $50.00 per animal. This fee includes all current vaccinations and having each pet spayed/neutered. If a pet is not old enough at the time of adoption to have been spayed/neutered, we will follow-up and complete this service when the pet reaches the proper age. (All pets adopted from Noah's Arc must be spayed/neutered.) It is our goal to find safe, happy, loving homes for all our pets, and in order to do so we must evaluate each prospective home on an individual basis for approval. Adoption applications and contracts are required. Cats are adopted primarily to indoor homes. Dogs are required to be housed in safe areas; indoors, fenced yards, or pens. Noah's Arc dogs cannot be chained. We require a fenced yard for almost all dog adoptions. Occasional, RARE exceptions are made, but they are the exception. Please, respect our decisions regarding the needs of our pets. Adoption applications can be obtained by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or we can be contacted by leaving a phone message at (423) 586-2293
