Kittens, Kittens and more kittens… and lots of puppies, puppies and more puppies. Want a particular color? We probably have that color and some you may not have seen before….We have too many kittens and puppies, and they are all available for adoption after they have their spay or neuter procedure…so that we have less kittens and puppies being born in the future….and don’t forget the adult cats and dogs too. They’re the best…some are already trained.
An unsprayed female cat, her mate and all of their offspring, producing 2 litters per year, with 2.8 surviving kittens per litter can total 11,801 cats in 5 years, add 12,288 dogs for the same 5 years…That is over 24,000 (yes, 24 THOUSAND!!) and too many of them end up in overcrowded shelters and never get to go to a new home. Please spay and neuter your pets! Remember assistance is available by way of the SNAP voucher program for qualified Monroe County residents. If you don’t qualify we are lucky to have the PPAW Spay Neuter Clinic so very close to us in Greenback-865-856-7729. They offer low cost spay and neuter surgeries to EVERYONE. The solution is to stop these litters from happening and spay and neuter is the way to do this. Be part of the solution!
Having a bad day? Stop by the Shelter during business hours and play with a puppy….cuddle a cat….walk a dog…..rub a kitten belly…..amazing how much better you (and the pet) will feel! FREE-UNLIMITED kitty purrs and puppy kisses available-every day. Volunteer and get your daily dose. Volunteers always welcome! Support the animals and support our shelter.
