The humane society is dedicated to serving the animals and people of their local community, as it is a group effort to achieve this goal. Services available to the community include animal adoptions, a low-cost spay/neuter/vaccination clinic, dog training, and education programs. Moreover, the society relies on the efforts of devoted community members for assistance through their volunteer opportunities, foster program, and generous donations. It is their hope to end pet overpopulation through promoting and offering low-cost spay/neutering, and to eliminate pet abandonment by offering training programs to address behavioral problems. The continued hard work of the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley has placed nearly 22,000 dogs and cats into new caring homes!
The Young-Williams Animal Center is also working relentlessly to find a home for every pet. They focus their efforts on adoptions, a lost and found animal program, and spays and neuters. The efforts of the nonprofit began when it was established in January 2001. Since then, its dedication, along with that of its many compassionate volunteers, has enabled the center to care for more than 11,000 animals each year. Devoted to promoting animal welfare and the sheltering and placement of animals, the open admission organization provides an aggressive spay/neuter program, a volunteer foster program, pet resources, and community outreach and education. Their mission is to lead the community in ending pet homelessness, enhancing the human-animal bond, and promoting all-around animal welfare.
The festival on Market Square is tail-waggin', butt-sniffin', dance-your-paws-sore fun! There will be lots of animal organizations, adoptable dogs, and even $10 rabies vaccines and microchips offered on-site. With more than 60 vendors, live music, local food trucks, doggie contests, and children activities, this event is a fabulous op-paw-tunity for the whole family.
