Did you know that many wonderful dogs are overlooked at shelters across the nation every day simply because of the color of their fur? Black is the most common color of dog that you’ll find at any shelter. Most shelters find that black dogs, especially large ones, are often the most difficult ones to place.

As an adopter, you can make difference in the life of shelter dog. Join others in experiencing the joys of having a black dog in your life and adopt one today!

We all want to save more lives each year. And the number of animals we can save depends on the number of people who open their hearts and homes to foster them. Young kittens and puppies need foster care until they are old enough to be spayed and neutered. Adult pets who are injured, undergoing heartworm treatment, or have recently given birth need foster care until they are well enough to find their forever homes. You can give these special pets a second chance by fostering.

One of our goals is to keep pets in their home and to educate adopters making their transition process as simple as possible. We hope the following sections of our website will aid you in the care of your pet.

Pet Care: Not all pets have the same needs, nor do they all come pre-trained. The articles in this section are designed to help you in the care and training of your pet through all stages of their life.
Pet Safety Each season brings a new safety hazard to your pets. However, you can be prepared and keep your pet safe from harm.
Pet Friendly Housing: Before making a move, learn how you can find a home that will permit you to keep your pet(s).




The SPCA of Tennessee is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization devoted to helping animals in need. Our mission is to end animal cruelty and suffering in our state and beyond through awareness, providing a safe haven and protection for abandoned, abused, neglected, and unwanted animals, and to promote animal welfare through counseling that mutually benefit animals and people.

We are able to make referrals and suggestion on how to report cruelty but we don’t have officers to investigate. Please contact your nearest Animal Control or Law Enforcement Department regarding animal cruelty.

Even One Dollar Can Make a Difference in an Animal’s Life

The SPCA of Tennessee has been helping animals in need for the past 8 years.

Help us help them and to give them a better life. There are two ways you can donate:

Keep Holding On

Everyone has a dream and all dreams will come true, if you believe in never giving up. It is our goal  to be able to build an SPCA facility one day and to have a home for the animals in need. At this time we rely on fosters and volunteers to be able to help us in doing what we do. We will never give up on trying to make our dream come true, building a place where animals can be safe and loved until their families come along. In the meantime, we are working on fundraisers to be able to pay our pending veterinary and boarding bills, and educating families on the importance of spaying and neutering their pets.






Our love for animals and our desire to protect and help them drives us to save their lives everyday.



I Have Done Something

I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter…the cast-offs of human society.

I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness, and betrayal. And I was angry.

“God,” I said, “this is terrible! Why don’t you do something?”

God was silent for a moment, and then He spoke softly, “I have done something,” he replied. “I created you.”
