McKamey Announces Adoptables Of The Week

Wednesday, October 13, 2021

This week’s featured Adoptables of the Week at McKamey Animal Center feature Jane, a very affectionate four-year old girl who’s happy to make friends wherever she goes and Hippo, a three-year old male with a beautiful smoky gray coat.
 
Jane has a moderate energy level, so while she enjoys some play time, long walks in the park and just trotting around the yard, she is more than happy to come back inside for some couch cuddles. She is a single dog because she wants all your love to herself.
 
Hippo is shy and needs a little time to warm up to new people. He needs to be the only cat in the household.
 
You can come meet these furry friends and other adoptable animals at McKamey Animal Center. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, appointments are necessary to meet any of the adoptable animals. Masks are required.

An adoption application can be filled out at https://www.mckameyanimalcenter.org/adoption. On the day of your appointment go to the Adoption entrance and ring the bell, someone will assist you. If you have questions, call 423-305-6500 ext. 157 or email adoptions@mckameyanimalcenter.org. 
 
The center is at 4500 North Access Road in Chattanooga and its hours are: Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Thursday from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
