For the first time ever, multiple shelters, humane societies, and rescues are coming together about the issue of chaining dogs.
This is a family-friendly event. We will have music, entertainment, local vendors, food trucks, resources for pet owners, dog trainers, and a food pantry giveaway provided for by Chewy.
So who all is coming or who do we expect to be represented after reaching out as far as shelters or humane societies go:
Washington Co. Animal Shelter
Washington Co. Humane Society
Unicoi Co. Animal Shelter
Carter Co. Animal Shelter
Sullivan Co. Animal Shelter
Petworks Animal Services
Hawkins Co. Humane Society
Greeneville-Greene County Humane Society
The Bridge Home No Kill Animal Rescue
Rescues are welcomed, some others have confirmed, and others including ones for cats or other animals are welcomed too.
The Tennessee representative for the Humane Society of the United States will be there to answer or help with legislative questions.
We are working on having police representatives as well.
If you are a vendor, rescue, shelter, or humane society and want a booth, contact Kevin King with the Unicoi County Animal Shelter or Tammy Davis with the Washington County Animal Shelter.
