Our shelter is the only one in our county that serves the public. We have tons of animals brought in but we are a small shelter and since we are a non-profit location we do not have the funds to expand . For the size of our county we have only 1/5 of the dog cages we should have! We also take pets from other counties but the release fee is a few dollars more.
We are the Hawkins County Humane Society and we are the only animal shelter that takes in animals from the public in our county. We are not ran by any departments through our county or state. We are a non-profit 501c3 organization and are based on donations only.
Come Meet our Pets:
We are open Tuesday - Saturday 12-5 and are closed Sunday and Monday. We are located at 5180 Hwy 11W in Rogersville Tennessee.
Our Adoption Process:
Our process consists of paperwork that needs to be filled out and our adoption fee. Dogs are 55 and 50 if they have been fixed and cats are 50 and 30 if they have been fixed. In the contract that you sign you will agree to get your animal fixed and when you do this you will get a refund for 25. We also have a Senior Citizen Program!!!
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.
