This Week's Featured Adoptables At McKamey Animal Center

Wednesday, July 15, 2020

McKamey Animal Center is still offering many wonderful animals as pets. This week the featured candidates are Giselle, left, and Kiara.

 

Giselle is not just another pretty face.

She can be a bit bashful in new situations but warms up when she feels safe and secure. She has an endearing personality that will be sure to shine once she adjusts to her new home. Giselle may do best in a quiet home with older kids. She’s looking forward to a lifetime of cuddles and lap time with her new best friend.

 

Kiara, is a five year old female who has completed a heartworm treatment while here at the center. She’ll be able to run and play in the near future. This spunky ball of sunshine only has three legs, but that doesn’t slow her down at all. She is very affectionate, but prefers to meet new people first so she can warm up to them.

 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, appointments are now necessary to meet Giselle and Kiara and all the other adoptables at McKamey.

 

An adoption application can be filled out at https://www.mckameyanimalcenter.org/adoptionOn the day of your appointment go to the Adoption entrance and ring the bell, someone will assist you. If you have questions please call 423 305-6500 ext. 100  or email adoptionadmin@mckameyanimalcenter.org. Masks are required for admittance.

 

The center is at 4500 North Access Road in Chattanooga and its hours are: Tuesday-Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m; Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
