What are the qualifications?

Owners must have proof that their pets are spayed or neutered OR be willing to have all pets spayed and neutered through Young-Williams Spay/Neuter Solutions clinic.



Prevent loss before it happens.

Ask us about microchips, the identification tags that never fall off. The tiny chip, embedded under the animal’s skin in a quick and painless procedure, contains vital information that can help animal control officers or Young-Williams team members return lost or stolen pets to their owners.

Young-Williams provides discount microchipping by appointment at our Division Street location. To make an appointment please call (865)215-6654

The fee for this service is $15, which includes registration. We proudly use Found Animals Registry microchips.
