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.

12 Hours. 1 Goal. 2 Shelters. Help us find homes for 120 animals this Friday! Join McKamey and Humane Educational Society for the Holiday All-Nighter Adoption Event presented by Chattanooga Dog Trainers - Off Leash K9 Training.

Meet Lucy! She is nothing short of AMAZING! Lucy is only 2 years old! She loves to play and explore the room. Lucy was brought in when her owners health declined, and now she is searching for a home that can keep up with her spunk. If you are interested in this fun-loving girl, ask the front desk to meet her( as she hangs in the back). **See more of our available pets by using the link below. https://www.mckameyanimalcenter.org/available-pets

Hi! My name is Lenette and I am just 1.5 years old! I was brought to McKamey when my shelter got flooded from Hurricane Florence. Everyone has been so welcoming, but it can be scary for me because I am DEAF. Being deaf does not define me, but makes me special. I am a very affectionate girl and walk well on a leash ( unless I get the zoomies, then I look like a horse trotting around you). I LOVE being around other dogs and it would help me learn the ropes to your home if you have a dog already. I love my friend Vicki-- she lays with me in the grass, works on hand signals, and trys to teach me the obstacle course. She always tells me how perfect I am! I do circles in my kennel, but once I am out I calm right down. I just hope someone will welcome me into their home and make me part of the family! If you are looking for a loving, playful, gentle family member, come meet me!
