At the Shelter: Busy February at the Greeneville-Greene County Humane Society | ACCENT

It was a busy February at the Greeneville-Greene County Humane Society Adoption Center. We are happy to announce that 98 homeless dogs and cats were adopted into loving homes during the month of February! Every dog ​​and cat has been spayed or spayed, helping in our fight to stop pet overpopulation in Greene County. Thank you to the adopters and all those who support our efforts.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in our annual “Have A Heart” fundraiser. Your donations help us continue to care for displaced dogs and cats as we find them ‘forever’ homes. We loved all the ornaments that decorated our “heart” tree. It was beautiful and full of “love” from you, our supporters.

We are delighted with the inauguration ceremony of our new refuge. The ceremony is scheduled for March 30 at 1 p.m. and will take place at 400 N. Rufe Taylor Road. Mark your calendars! The new shelter will provide our dogs with larger, more comfortable kennels and large outdoor play areas. Cats will have spacious chat rooms and large outdoor “catios” where they can laze around all day in the fresh air. Of course, none of this will be possible without the support of our members and friends like you. Although none of us can do it all, together we can all do something to help alleviate the suffering of homeless dogs and cats.

If you would like to donate to support the Greeneville-Greene County Humane Society, there are several ways you can help. Mail your donation to GGCHS, PO Box 792, Greeneville, TN 37744. You may also choose to donate online at or stop by the Humane Society Adoption Center or call our staff to donate by phone from noon until 3 p.m. on Tuesday. to Saturday at 423-639-4771.

We share with our readers photos of many needed donations that were brought to the shelter in February. Our donation request for the month of March is “clumping” cat litter and 13 gallon trash bags. We mix this clumping litter with our non-clumping litter and it works great! Simply drop off clumping waste or trash bags at any time or have it delivered to us at 950 Hal Henard Road. Our cats will meow thanks to fresh and clean litter boxes!

Your donations help us take care of the cats and dogs that live happily with us for as long as needed. God bless you for your support!
