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.

Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley

We just got back from McKamey Animal Center in Chattanooga and pulled in 20+ animals that came from shelters affected by the hurricane. We may have some rain showers today but it’s nothing compared to the flooding happening in North & South Carolina. We are asking our Knoxville community to drop off donations in our lobby so we can deliver to shelters in need. We need to fill our van, your help allows us to help others. Drop off at 6717 Kingston Pike, Knoxville Collecting: any dog, cat, horse or small animal food and also tarps, bleach, paper towels, laundry detergent to help with cleanup after the storm.

Huge thanks to the wonderful staff Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley for taking in 28 animals! They lightened the load by taking in some of our most time-intensive animals like underage kittens and seniors in need of significant medical care. This helps free up resources so we can help more animals affected by hurricane Florence. It's collaborations like this that makes life better for animals everywhere #sheltershelpingshelters

If you are looking for a goofy, lovable pup... look no further... Meet Titus. He came to us from the Carolinas (Hurricane Florence Dog) and he is an absolute love bug!! He hasn’t found a person, or a dog he doesn’t love. Titus is around 3 years old, very playful, smart, and affectionate. Titus knows sit and stay, but could use a little work on his leash manners. Due to his large size of 70lbs, he would be best in a home with no small children, as he often forgets his size. His ideal home needs active parents that can take him on lots of adventures, then relax with him watching Netflix and snugglin’ the night away! Come meet this sweet boy and give him his second chance at a loving forever home!!
