If there are any animals that you would like to meet, please call us between 12 noon and 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, or 12 noon to 4:00 p.m. Saturday and make an appointment to come meet them.
Applications to adopt an animal are made in person. We have an informal interview to discuss with the potential adopter their interest in the animal.
Cat adoptions are same day and are first come first served. An adopter can pay the fee and take them home. The adopter must have a cat carrier. We offer cardboard carriers for five dollars.
Many of our dogs require a fenced yard. If a fence is required, a home visit will be arranged with the adopter. A volunteer or staff member will visit the home and inspect the fence. If approved, the adopter can next come back and adopt the dog.
If a fence is not required, same-day adoptions of dogs are possible.
When we have multiple applications for one dog, we select the family that we feel is the best fit for the dog and the family.
ADOPTION FEES ARE:
$60 for Cats
$90 & up for Dogs
$120 for puppies
$180 & up for purebreds
We accept cash and credit/debit cards and NFC contactless payments(Google Pay/Samsung Pay/Apple Pay, etc).
OWNER SURRENDER OF CATS AND DOGS
We take owner surrenders for cats and dogs as we have room. When circumstances become impossible for an owner to care for their pet, we work with them to take in their pet and re-home them. We understand how difficult it can be to give up a beloved pet. We work very hard to re-home the pet into a home that is a good fit for the animal and the new owner.
This is done on a case-by-case basis, and as we have room. We cannot accommodate every request for an owner surrender. Cats must be current on rabies and distemper vaccines and have a negative feline leukemia test. Dogs must be current on rabies, distemper/parvo, and bordetella vaccines. Medical records must be provided at the time of surrender.
TN LICENSE PLATE GRANT FOR SPAY/NEUTER ASSISTANCE
For those receiving social security, disability, or food stamps, our grant can assist a pet owner in getting their cat or dog spayed/neutered. An application is filled out and the benefit statement is attached. The pet has to have all its shots before being spayed/neutered. The cost of the spay/neuter to the owner is 10 dollars.
Periodically we have community outreach events. For the 2020 holiday season, we had pet angel trees in the community. Needy pets from the community, as well as Bridge Home pets, benefited from the generosity of people who shopped for them and donated items. We also host events to promote awareness of the importance of spay/neuter in preventing companion animal overpopulation. Check out our Facebook page for the most up-to-date events!
Do you take strays? No, we do not pick up stray animals or accept stray animals. People should call their local animal control officer.
Can I come and drop off an animal without calling first? No, we can only accept animals by appointment. We are a small facility and have limited space.
If you can’t take my animal, where can I find help? Please contact your local animal shelter, animal control officer, or search for breed-specific rescues. We also keep a list of resources and can point you to another organization.
How do I volunteer? We welcome volunteers and community service workers. Volunteer hours are mostly between noon and 6 p.m., but some volunteers can be accommodated in the morning. Call us to learn more!
