Spay & Neuter Services

“Loving, Protecting and Caring for God’s precious creatures”

Kindness Counts provides true low cost spay, neuter, and vaccination services for cats, dogs and other small pets throughout Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, Knoxville and the Smoky Mountains area.

We are a 50l(c)(3) non-profit all volunteer organization operating since 2003. We have spayed and neutered more than 4,100 cats, 300 dogs and 11 rabbits and adopted over 600 cats, dogs and kittens. In addition, our services include the loaning out of live traps for people managing feral cat colonies through TNP (Trap, Neuter and Return) and continuing our pet pick-up and delivery service for the elderly or housebound.

If you love animals and believe in ‘no kill’ shelter facilities, please read our DONATIONS page about our mission and how you can possibly help us reach our goals.  Thank you!

Another way you can support us. If you plan to order on, order your Christmas gifts through Smile Amazon and a small portion of every sale will be donated by Amazon to Kindness Counts.  Such a terrific way to purchase the gifts you already intend on getting and at the same time aiding furry little animals these Christmas season!

Thanks for taking care of my pet, she is much better these days.  Look forward to seeing your facility when it opens, soon I hope!

April, our pup is doing fantastic and we thank you for your overwhelming loving attention.  Hearing great things about your new clinic. Happy to see a non-profit clinic come to the Smoky Mountains area.

Never thought I would capture those feral cats, they were so scared and cold.  Thanks to your great instructions and tender care our cats are really getting along wonderfully.  Look forward to your pet clinic opening soon so we can start saving on some pet services.
