Chattanooga: New Animal Center

"Chattanooga opens the new $6.5 million animal shelter, the McKamey Animal Care and Adoption Center in five weeks.

On that day, July 1, the Humane Educational Society, the organization that currently serves the city, begins the new fiscal year with a $527,000 drop in money for operations and a 60 percent decrease in the number of abandoned animals it accepts.

“We’ll be receiving 8,000 less animals,” said Guy Bilyeu, executive director of the Humane Society. “We’re still providing the service. We just won’t be servicing the city of Chattanooga.”

"Choose to adopt your dog or cat. Pet adoption is the ultimate in recycling. There are thousands of wonderful pets just waiting for you."
