McKamey Animal Center is not your average animal shelter.

We create a culture of compassionate care, community engagement and advocacy for animals by providing programs and education that support people and companion animals.

Are you looking for the next family member that checks all the boxes and the perfect size? Meet Bobo! This energetic and friendly guy has great social skills, and is even helping his kennel mate Sally learn to have confidence. Bobo is very affectionate, polite on the leash, and loves keeping a clean kennel. Bobo is a perfect little guy at only 30lbs. He enjoys playtime, but also enjoys a relaxing day of snuggles. Just beware, he is known to snore! Come in and ask to meet Bobo, take him on an adventure, and most importantly ADOPT!

We want to introduce Lucid. She came to us in the middle of December, and obviously her life prior had been miserable. She arrived with extremely inflamed skin, very little fur, undernourished and sores over her entire body. Despite these conditions, she had the spirit of an angel and quickly became a staff and volunteer favorite. The staff worked tirelessly to keep her wounds clean and medicated, providing soft bedding for her to rest and find comfort. After 2 months, we think she looks amazing and wanted to share her journey. We have no idea of what she went through before her arrival and she still is a little timid, but very treat motivated making her easy to train and warm up to you. Please share her story and help us make her transformation complete with a forever family. #adoptlucid

Meet Reed! This pretty boy is only 8 months old! Like many young cats his age, he loves to play! He was brought to McKamey when his old owner decided they no longer wanted to have an animal. That's ok because he is living it up here! We consider him Lion-Hearted! He is confident and self-assured with no problem showing it! When he is done prowling and playing, Reed just wants to find a nice lap to cuddle up in. If you are interested in meeting Reed, just ask one of the employees at the front desk to get him out. He is hanging out in the back until it's his time to shine up front. ♥️ **See more of our available pets by using the link below. https://www.mckameyanimalcenter.org/available-pets

So many GREAT pictures and videos come from combining animals with a GoPro camera! That's why we are asking our community for a donation of one! If you or anyone you know has a GoPro camera that they are no longer using, we would LOVE it! Imagine all the amazing pictures and videos we would share if we had one!! If you have any questions or have a GoPro that you would like to donate, please call us at (423) 305-6506 or email edassist@mckameyanimalcenter.org!
