Give a Wag! Gives to Clarksville Shelters

The official shelter of the municipality of Clarksville, Montgomery County Animal Control enforces all animal regulatory ordinances in conjunction with law enforcement such as reporting instances of dangerous or nuisance animals. This shelter strives towards rabies eradication and combatting overpopulation in the county by offering low-cost vaccines and desexing in their adoption fees. When staff here are not investigating a case or reuniting lost animals with their owners, they are working to rehabilitate homeless animals for adoption.

Montgomery County Friends of the Shelter (MCFOTS) is a nonprofit support organization that operates entirely on volunteer time. While they do not have a shelter space of their own, directing all attention to animals held at the city shelter, MCFOTS is responsible for the rehoming of thousands of animals. Maintaining a very active website and Facebook page, this organization is constantly providing intimate accounts and beautifully taken snapshots of each of the animals available for adoption weekly.

The story of the Humane Society of Clarksville-Montgomery County is one of love, loss, and redemption. Founded nearly 30 years ago, this shelter was quickly overwhelmed by the costs of upkeep and lack of any government funding. They were forced to close their facility for good in 2003 but continued on in their mission to support homeless animals being placed at the city shelter. Unfortunately, the euthanasia rates remained at astonishing highs, and this organization decided to change their focus. They now run a low-cost spay & neuter clinic in an attempt to prevent shelter overcrowding and give more animals a chance at life. While they still facilitate adoptions of dogs and cats, the clinic has become their dominant focus.

    #3 Lighted Christmas Parade

    Nothing drums up holiday cheer for the family like your town’s local Christmas Parade. The Clarksville Lighted Christmas Parade takes place in the evening, so spectators can take in the bright, shiny strands of lights on walkers and floats. Lights are a requirement to participate in the parade itself, and it is a tradition for spectators to get lit as well. The route runs all through historic downtown Clarksville and heads up near the college campus. Leashed, well-behaved dogs are welcome to join in on the excitement as the Lighted Parade comes up on its near 60th year of running!
