Give a Wag! Gives to Chattanooga Shelters

Often called the Gateway to the South, Chattanooga, Tennessee is quickly becoming a hot-spot for pups, and while they don't have a whole host of pet-themed festivals or establishments (yet!), they do feature a ton of pawesome, pet-friendly bars, restaurants, attractions, and dog parks!  More importantly, Chatt Town is home to dozens of pup-focused organizations, shelters, charities, volunteer groups. 

One of the largest organizations, the Humane Educational Society, functions to provide a safe haven for homeless, abused, and neglected animals in the Chatt community. Not only do they shelter pups, they facilitate adoption, host fundraising events, provide affordable medical services, and care for all neglected doggos in the area! Since their establishment in 1910, the organization has worked to take in and re-home about 4,000 pets every year.

Chattanooga is also home to the Pet Placement Center, the oldest no-kill shelter in the city. Beginning as the Humane Animal League, the organization survives solely off of donations and fundraising activities. This private adoption center works to facilitate adoptions, house neglected and injured animals, and create volunteer opportunities for foster families. 

Upcoming Dog Friendly Events in Chattanooga

  • Admission FREE!

    #1 Paws in the Park

    This spooky dog walk is one you won't want to miss! Put on by the Humane Educational Society of Chattanooga, this frightfully furry fundraiser is an annual event that happens every Fall at Ross's Landing Park. Join together with hundreds of other pet-lovers and pawesome pups for a charitable dog walk that benefits outreach to the community, medical services for needy animals, and shelter for homeless animals. Another neat feature - if you don't have a pup to walk, they'll let you rent a shelter dog for a stroll through the park! This Halloween-themed doggy event also features  costume contests and prizes for smallest pups, largest pups, and the best tricks.

    #2 Bark Parks

    Chatt town has no shortage of puppy parks for you to take your four-legged friend. Some of the most popular parks are centrally located, all with fire hydrants to sniff and explore, agility toys, and benches for humans! Close to downtown, you can find Chew Chew Canine Park, a fully fenced-in park where your pup can run off-leash and free. Farther out, your active pup can enjoy parks like Greenway Farms, White Oak Park, and Heritage Dog Park - all which are well equipped with hydrating stations, fenced in play areas, and adequate puppy-poop-removal systems.

    #3 Walkies and Hikes

    If you own a pup that can't get enough of adventure, then Chattanooga is the town for you. There are hundreds of spots to take your pooch for the ultimate walk or hike, as long as you remember the leash! One favorite is Glen Falls on the beautiful Lookout Mountain. If the weather is nice and the water is warm, it's one of the best spots to take your doggo for a dip. Cumberland Trail, Raccoon Mountain, and North Chickamauga Creek are also heavily dog-pupulated trails! Make sure you remember to hydrate your pup (and yourself!) and to bring doggy clean-up bags, too!

    #5 Pet-Friendly Festivals

    While Chattanooga doesn't host many pet-specific festivals (we're pawsitive those are coming in the future), they do allow your fluffy pups to join you at many of their awesome, annual festivals that occur in their downtown area. Giant festival likes the Riverbend Festival - an eight-day, five-stage festival that features over 100 artists, and the 3 Sisters Festival - a bluegrass event that's been named one of the top five bluegrass festivals in the country. Both of these events allow your pup to enjoy the fun too!
