Animal Clinic Progress Update

GREAT NEWS! The opening of Sevierville’s non-profit animal clinic has proven to be a large asset to Sevier County.  A very short time ago they reached their 1000th Spay/Neuter operation and last week they reached their 2000th Spay/Neuter operation.  We will get a photo of this beautiful animal very shortly.

We are very thankful for the many organizations and the Sevier County community for their overwhelming support.  We are also very thankful for the many volunteers, at the various organizations, who selflessly devote their precious time aiding in the care of the many animals.

Below are some images from our Spay/Neuter facility.

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.
