McKamey Adoptables Of The Week

Saturday, November 9, 2019

McKamey Animal Center has two more wonderful pets looking for their forever homes this week:

The gorgeous lady on the left is Lara. She is four years old, and loves receiving attention and can be quite the flirt when she isn't exploring her surroundings. On the right is Sarge, a one-year old catahoula mix.

Sarge can be shy when meeting new friends, but he warms up quickly and will be your best friend from then on. 

Come meet them and many other adoptable animals at McKamey Animal Center, 4500 N. Access Road, Chattanooga, Tn. 37415, or call 305-6500. 

The center is open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday, 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m. and Thursday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Weekend hours are Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Sunday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

The center is closed on Mondays.
