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.
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 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.
