you can make a difference
in the lives of shelter pets.

Each year approximately 6 million dogs and cats enter shelters nationwide. Roughly half of those will be euthanized, not due to poor health or aggression issues but simply due to lack of resources. At the Maryville Alcoa Animal Rescue Center we are committed to saving these innocent lives, all of them – not just 50% of them. We believe every animal deserves a chance at life. Our dedicated team of volunteers work around the clock caring for every animal that enters our system with not only housing, feeding, cleaning, and vetting; but with training, love, and socialization. Anything and everything needed to get these forgotten and abandoned animals ready for their forever home. Due to efforts like these our community has proudly maintained a 98% or better save rate for over 5 years.
