Pet Help Initiative Seeks Funds to Keep Animals Safe

Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic help us keep Pets and People Together

/ 150


Your donation to Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley goes straight to work helping animals.

We issued an emergency appeal for monetary donations to keep pets safe, healthy and in their homes amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Pet Help, an initiative aimed at keeping people and pets together in their homes, is receiving a heightened number of requests for pet food, cat litter, flea and tick medicine, and other needs focusing on pet retention. The need stems from the increasing number of people facing economic hardship due to COVID-19 related job loss. Your donation today helps us give families what they need to keep their pet in their home and out of area shelters. Relying solely on donations and grant funding, Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley needs community support now more than ever.

Our monthly giving program allows you to conveniently support Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley with any amount you choose. Your donation goes a long way to help an abandoned animal, who needs to be transferred to our shelter from shelters and rescues across East Tennessee, get a new chance at life.

  • Help provide support to our Pet Help Program to meet the immediate needs of families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. For just $15 a month you can help stock the shelves in our Pet Food Pantry and keep pets and people together during these uncertain times.
  • Help feed a small dog or cat while they wait to meet their forever family for just $25 a month.
  • Help purchase a heartworm test for an at risk dog with results that could save a life for just $30 a month.
  • Help fully vaccinate a cat or dog to protect them from illness for just $50 a month.
  • Prevent more unwanted litters with spay/neuter surgery for $100 a month.

Financial support is the backbone of every animal shelter, and the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley is no exception. Our adoption fees barely cover the expense of housing an animal during their stay with us. We depend on the generosity of people like you in order to continue to transport animals, from other high risk shelters in the communities we serve, to our Adoption Center in Knoxville, TN. We give them the medical care they need then find them their best match for a forever home.
