Mckamey Animal Center offers a variety of Spay / Neuter programs to low income residents of the City of Chattanooga. They target stray/ feral cats and owned cats & dogs and are designed to reduce the unwanted pet population of Chattanooga.  It is our goal to encourage a community environment that promotes acceptance and responsibility so that the citizens will help us execute a plan that controls and protects the pets abandoned by society that exist in Chattanooga.
