adoption information

At this time, anyone who is interested in adopting any animal (including an scp foster), should contact the shelter. All adoptions will take place through the shelter.

If an animal is in scp foster care, an appointment should be made to have the pet brought into the shelter to meet and greet. Please call 423.442.1015 and leave a message on the answering machine if no one is available to take your call. The shelter makes every effort to return phone calls as soon as possible, though please understand that on days where there is a lot of activity getting pets ready for a Rolling Rescue or other transport or not enough volunteers, the shelter can become shorthanded. If your call is not returned in 4 to 6 hours, please call back. Your call is important to us!

We will make every effort to bring the foster into the shelter within a 2-day timeframe that is convenient for both the prospective adoptor and the volunteer fostering the pet.
