Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We accept all animals from Blount County, TN but adopt out to the entire nation through our agressive rescue transport program.

About Our Shelter:

Blount County, TN had never had a shelter and utilized a tiny municipal pound that euthanized intakes almost as soon as they came in. The people of Blount County rose up and demanded a real shelter for the County. The new shelter was designed and then seeded with $350,000 from the County. An additional $650,000 was raised from private donations. The partially completed shelter went operational in Nov of 2009. It is scheduled to be completed by mid 2011.

Come Meet our Pets:

The animals are available Tuesday through Friday from 10 to 6 and Saturday 10 to 2 at the shelter at 233 Currie Ave in Maryville, TN.

Our Adoption Process:

Our normal adoption fee is $95 which includes all vaccinations appropriate for the animal, its age, and its health status, rabies vaccination with indicating tags, and spay/neuter of old enough or a $50 deposit if not. The fee includes Heartworm testing for dogs and Combo test for cats prior to adoption. Adopters are required to sign a one page contract outlining our and their responsibilities for the 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.
