The SPCA has dogs, cats, puppies and kittens in all sizes, shapes and colors and they all want the same thing – a forever home.
The adoption fee at the SPCA of Bradley County is $50 and includes spay/neuter, vaccinations and a microchip with free lifetime registration.
The shelter is open Tuesday through Friday, noon to 6 p.m., and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you’re interested in meeting one of the dogs or cats at the SPCA and you can’t make it during regular business hours, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 423-790-1915 and we’ll set up a time to have a volunteer or staff member arrange for a meet and greet.
This week’s Featured Dog is Bonnie. Bonnie is a medium-sized yellow mixed breed, a playful young sweetheart of a dog. This week’s Featured Cat is Autumn, a beautiful adult calico who is already spayed and is declawed.
You can view all of the pets at the SPCA at www.facebook.com/bradleycountyspca.
It’s also not too late to become a charter member of the SPCA of Bradley County.
Join before May 1, and your memberships will be recognized as part of a permanent display inside the new animal shelter. Membership levels begin at a donation amount of $10 annually (or a pledge to donate $1 per month for the next 12 months) for “Puppy Paws,” children ages 0-10. The top membership category, “SPCA Guardian Angel,” recognizes donors who give $1,000 or more per year.
In addition to individual membership, the SPCA provides membership categories for families, organizations and businesses. Explore membership levels, join and make your membership donation on the SPCA’s website at www.spcaofbradleycountytn.org.
Those who give donations of $500 or more in 2014 will be recognized as SPCA Founders. A wall inside the shelter will permanently display the names of the Founders. Those joining at the “Best Friends” membership level ($500 to $999 annually) or the “Guardian Angels” membership level ($1,000 or more annually) will also have the opportunity to name one of the 20 kennels in the shelter for the remainder of 2014. Donors can choose to have their name, a family name, or an organization name displayed on the kennel. They can also sponsor the kennel in memory or in honor of a human or animal loved one.
In addition to the kennel-naming opportunity, the following additional naming opportunities are available:
• Permanent naming of the shelter, $50,000 donation.
• Permanent naming of the Dog Care Center, $25,000 donation.
• Permanent naming of the Small Animal Center, $20,000.
For more information about these naming opportunities, contact SPCA of Bradley County Development/Communications Director Beth Foster by email at email@example.com or telephone at 423 457-2519.
