This is exciting for me, because pet adoption is a topic that I am passionate about. I believe that it’s important for families to be aware of the commitment they are making before bringing their furry friend home, which is why a Dander Allergy Test could be the perfect first step in any potential adopter’s decision making the process for adoption.

 “Our Mission statement”

Saving lives if what we do, there will be always injured, helpless, homeless animals needing us along the way. We are here to give them a second chance. With your help we can make Tennessee a better place for animals. We should treat animals as humans wish to be treated. We believe in kindness and compassion for all living creatures, to improved their lives with a positive experience of caring and love. Our main goal is to develop, promote and create programs with new ideas how to help animals and to do what we say we do by building partnerships across the country to improve our resources in the state. We believe by working together we can save more lives                                          

The SPCA of Tennessee is looking for foster parents to keep helping animals! 

The SPCA of Tennessee doesn’t get help from the ASPCA in New York. Every SPCA is usually built in the state that is founded.

Animals need a voice and we are looking for a spoke person in our community!

A place to run and be free, a place that they will never be alone, a place where will always be loved. Back in December 25th of 2005 there was a dream that I was always wanted to achieve to be able to help animals in the state of Tennessee. There are so many dogs being overlooked at the shelter and I wanted to be able to give them a second chance. I believe with proper patience and determination these animals can be rehabilitated finding forever homes. I decided to found the SPCA of Tennessee to improve the lives of so many animals that need us. I believe in faith, determination and hope. We have saved more than 10,500 animals the past 11 years. I hope that 2018 will bring a brighter future for the SPCA of TN. I have never lost faith because I believe in miracles and my biggest one is to be able to built a place for them. 

There is always a dream..but where there is a will, there is a way to be able to one day built our dream place for the SPCA of Tennessee. Help us achieve our dream to keep helping animals in need in the state. Thank you for all your support and for believing in what we do.

Bound by the passion and determination, the SPCA of Tennessee (The Society for the prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is partnering with shelters to help Bully breeds. Most of the time, these deserving dogs get overlooked by the public due to misconceptions about the breed. 1960, the Pit Bulls came from England and were bred to protect children. They were brought into families to be like a nanny for the little ones. As you may remember, one of the main characters in the movie, “The Little Rascals”, was their dogs named “Spot”, who was a Staffordshire Terrier. He was loyal to the kids and his determination was to become there best friend.

Education is a HUGE part of people understanding that not every Bit Bull is automatically a bad dog. Bully Breeds simply have a bad rap. It is important to first be a responsible owner when you are adopting a dog. It is a commitment and people have to realize the dog that you are adopting will become part of your family for years to come. The dog might have some issues at first coming from a shelter environment, but with patience and determination any problems can be resolved.

When you go to your Animal Shelter make sure you take a moment to look at every dog in the kennels. Remember every dog has a story and every one of them deserves a chance. How will you you know that one of these overlooked dogs club be your perfect match? Listen to what the shelter staff has to say, hear their story. Then, look into their eyes and see it for yourself.

There is definitely a difference between the people who love cats and dogs; however the most important part is that they love them! We would like to get your feedback through a written letter or via email. We are also looking really hard for volunteers who can help us in different areas in our organization. Please remember we are all volunteers and all of us have a full time jobs and responsibilities. We would love to have you being part of this amazing TEAM!

I want to GIVE a BIG THANK YOU, to all the special people that have supported the SPCA of Tennessee through these 10 years. It would not have been possible to accomplish all the adoptions and to get these wonderful animals to a safer place without their help. Our main goal in 2016 is to make people more aware of the importance of SPAYING and NEUTERING their pets and to help families that encounter difficulties with their pets by providing the guidance and support that they need. Animals are part of our families and we need to treat them with care and respect.

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


Don’t Ever give up on your dreams because giving up will never give you success!


Always spend time with your BEST FRIEND  just being there for them is always the connection they need….Unconditional LOVE



 How can you make a difference in an animal’s life….Don’t forget it is all about them!

Did you know that many wonderful dogs and cats 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. Please consider this, and do the appropriate research 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).

If you need to report an animal cruelty case, please contact your Animal Control in your county. There are 95 counties in the state of Tennessee. Some counties are so small and they don’t have animal control, we will be working in trying to help those counties to get animals to a safe place. The Sheriff Department is in charge of the cattle and horses. 

The SPCA will be working on getting more involved in the cruelty cases involving horses and puppy mills. I need volunteers that are committed to the cause and want to help. Dedication, perseverance, and love for what we believe is what we are all about. If you are interested in joining our TEAM just fill out a VOLUNTEER APPLICATION on our website at www.spcatn.org 


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

“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 keep helping animals in Tennessee as well as education and spay an neuter clinic.



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.”
