About us: The Humane Society of East Tennessee is a non-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to helping companion animals find good homes. We rescue dogs and cats (and other animals) from local municipal shelters that euthanize and we accept animals from the general public. EVERY animal we rescue stays with us until it is adopted and we never euthanize one animal to make room for another. Each animal we rescue is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, tested, dewormed and microchipped prior to adoption. Our adoption fees range from $75.00 - $150.00 and include the above mentioned services as well as free lifetime micro-chip registration.


Funding:  We receive no State, City or County Funding.  The animals in our care rely on the kindness and generosity of our community for all basic needs and medical care.  So from cat litter to toys, to yummy treats and office supplies, we are always in need of things to create a home away from home for our most special of guests, the animals.  (Check out our wish list) Donations may be dropped off or mailed to the Humane Society of East Tennessee, P.O.
