About East Tennessee Alliance for Animals TN

East Tennessee Alliance for animals is a small not for profit organization. We received our 501C(3) status in April of 2010. Our focus is to help educate our community regarding the importance of spay and neuter and proper care of our pets. We also serve as a stop gap to shelters so pets do not end up in a shelter. We also try to assist families who must surrender their animals due to the death of a loved one, loss of income or other life altering situations. We also help strays and abandoned pets find refuge in a new forever home.
ETAA always needs fosters, volunteers and also donations.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

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.
