PAWS, Pet Adoption and Welfare Services is the counties animal program, and they have a pet of the week. With the holidays coming up, if you feel a pet is appropriate, please look into a PAWS pet and not one from a breeder.
They also have PETS OF THE WEEK. These are healthy, cared for, and adoption ready.
Animal Services is working in partnership with the community to create a safe, healthy and caring environment for both our citizens and animals through education and courteous, effective enforcement of the laws relating to animals within the Tennessee Code Annotated.
