The SPCA of Tennessee has saved and found homes for 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.
"Therapy Ranch for Animals and people"
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.
Our minds are like ocean waves full of emotions and turbulence's deep inside of us. In the animal world, they can understand us and they react depending on how we are feeling at any specific moment in our lives. For example, how many of us come home from work and don’t feel like talking to anyone just having a quiet moment and petting our best friend?. Life can make us feel empty and lost sometimes. Animals are the only ones who can understand our emotions and makes us smile again. They make us feel comfortable and strong, looking forward to overcome all obstacles that we encounter everyday. We can talk to them, we can share those special intimate thoughts, and we know that they will never betray or judge us. Animals are our best friends in good and bad times. They will always be there for us…always. Let’s protect them, love them, and always be there for them……don't ever forget who your best friend is!
They communicate when they are feeling happy, sad, nervous, fearful, angry, and they use their faces and bodies to convey much of this information. Dog body language is an elaborate and sophisticated system of nonverbal communication that, fortunately, we can learn to recognize and interpret. Although dogs and cats cannot speak, they can still let us know their emotions by their body language and the sounds they make.
The SPCA of Tennessee is 501(c)3 non-profit organization who relies on volunteers and a variety of partners to be able to continue the work of saving animals in the state of Tennessee and southern and northern states throughout the United States. Our main goal is to be able to get more animals of the streets and situations where they are not well taking care of and give them a better life. Thank you for all your support throughout the past 11 years. It has been a long road to follow but now an impossible dream to achieve.
Donations are part of what help us do what we do for them. Sometimes we get animals in need that require more medical expenses than others. All your donations are tax deductible. All donations not matter the amount help us continue doing more for the animals in Tennessee and souther states.
