 Monetary donations for Pets in need of Spay/Neuter or Medical Care

Volunteers Needed!

                We are very happy with the number of cats and dogs we have helped to be spayed /neutered so far. But our organization’s vision is no more homeless animals in northeast Tennessee. There are many people who share that vision and that is what has made the surgeries performed so far possible. However, to make the vision of no more homeless dogs and cats a reality, we have to spay and neuter many more dogs and cats. To accomplish that goal we need even more of us who can look to the future and say “Yes, we need to do that. We can do that. More importantly, we want to help do that!” 

                We need help in the form of volunteers. Every one of us has a skill, ability or talent that we can use to turn this vision into a reality (and never underestimate it or its value to us). The spays and neuters are low cost but not free. In addition there are various expenses involved with bringing this non-profit service to our area. We are working on grants and fundraisers, but donations have been critical to our work. So please call us at 423-921-4519 and join us in this life-saving mission of no more homeless animals. Carol Hood January, 2013
