Our goal is to find loving forever homes for the animals that come through our doors.
However, many animals that come to us are not ready for adoption. Since we are an open-intake facility and the official animal shelter for Knox County and the City of Knoxville, we turn no animal away regardless of its condition.
The Harry and Carolyn Galbraith Animal Compassion Fund has been established to provide the resources needed to treat animals with medical conditions or behavioral problems that would otherwise render them unadoptable.
The fund helps with necessary medical equipment and treatment as well as providing foster homes for these delicate pets while they heal. Once restored to health, these animals can be placed on the adoption floor to find their new forever home.
