The SPCA of Tennessee has saved and found homes to over 11,000 homeless animals. There is nothing like seeing "Happy Endings," and wagging tails when they are being loved for the first time in their lives. We can always asked ourselves how can we all make a difference in the state and give the animals a second chance? Working together is the key of animal success stories. As a Founder and President of the SPCA of Tennessee since 2006, I would like to invite everyone to join our cause to make Tennessee a better place for animals and to be proud of their overcome. We need SUPPORTERS and DONATIONS to continue our work in the state; to be able to be SUCCESSFUL. All it takes is people like "YOU" with commitment and determination to make our dream come true. We need volunteers and fosters to help us continue getting the work that we do, until we can built a place for them. There are 95 counties in the state of Tennessee and some of those counties do not have animal control and the Sheriff Department will not do anything to help those animals in need. Animals do not have a voice. We must be their voice We are their only hope to be able to save their lives. We want to create a partnership with the social community to help homeless people, as well as low income families to have a spay and neuter clinic, to lower the overpopulation in the state. Veterinary care can be very costly and some families do not have the money to care for them. There are animals that get the help they need by donating to their care, however there are many others that do not have that chance because of neglect, abused, and careless owners. Dogs, horses, and cats are being neglected and left without food and shelter in the hot and cold weather. Dogs are being chained and get scrap from the table instead of dog food. Cats are multiplying because the females keep having kittens, Horses are being left in muddy fields without any grass or hay to eat. There is so much work to do in the state, but with YOUR help we can make Tennessee a better place for animals.
Saving lives is what we do. There will always be injured, helpless, and homeless animals that will need our help. 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 and to improve their lives with positive experiences of caring and love. We seek to develop, promote, and create programs with new ideas 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.
A place to run and be free, they will never be alone, and will always be loved. Our ultimate goals are to be able to provide an animal sanctuary so no animals are killed, are given medical treatment, provide low cost treatment for homeless and/or low income families for their animals, and offer behavioral training. And, of course, animals will be available for fostering and adoption.
On December 25th, 2005, there was a dream I always wanted to achieve to be able to help animals in the state of Tennessee. There are so many dogs and cats that are overlooked at shelters and I wanted to be able to give them a second chance.
I believe with patience and determination, these animals can be rehabilitated to find their forever homes. I decided to become the founder of the SPCA of Tennessee to improve the lives of animals. I believe in faith, determination, and hope. I desire to 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 build a place for them.
