I've been involved with a lot of non-profits over the years but McKamey is far and away my most satisfying opportunity to make a difference. Chattanooga's stray animal problem was an embarrassment to the city until local leaders announced a new shelter would be built. With state-of-the-art equipment and an exceptional caring staff, they are making inroads in our problem, gaining national recognition and showing the world we do care about helpless animals who are without a forever family through no fault of their own. I'm proud to tell people I'm a volunteer for McKamey.

I have served on the board of a number of non-profit organizations in our community and, I can say, without hesitation, that the McKamey Center uses what resources they have more compassionately, wisely and cost-effectively than many other agencies with much larger budgets and staffs. The Center has made a huge difference in our community in directing community attention toward the responsibility to spayor neuter, to advocate for the animals, to educate themselves to be more responsible pet owners, and to comply with our city's animal ordinances.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?

Adopted our first rescue dog in 2009 from McKamey and she's been a blast. We love how great our adoption experience was and the impact they're making on the animal friendliness of our community that we attended a McKamey fundraising event at a local minor league baseball team. There they had a foster dog to raise awareness that we fell in love with and he's now our newest child. Can't find nicer people, better facilities, or greater animals than those loved by McKamey. Thanks for all you do!

I have thought about adopting a pet for many years but have always purchased one from a small reputable breeder. I was nervous that if I adopted a pet it might be sick or have a behavioral issue. The staff at the mcKamey Cneter changed all that for me. I learned how much goes into preparing a pet for adoption and all the care that the McKamey team use to be sure that they adopt great healthy animals. My new dog is great. He is the healthiest happiest little guy. Now that I have him I will always adopt. I know there are no guarantees with ant pet and you love them all their lives through thick and thin but it is nice the lengths they go to to try to be sure every pets getsoff to a good start!
