What started out as a small "taxi service" to and from the nearest low cost clinic has blossomed into one of the most wonderful non-profits I've ever had the pleasure of being a part of. With over 2000 pets having been spayed or neutered via the shuttle bus and vouchers, thousands of homeless animals have been spared from entering the shelter system or having to be euthanized.

ETSN is growing and the outreach to our local communities couldn't be more appreciated. Weather it's the pet food pantry, help with spay & neuter or just some simple training tips, all roads lead back to home for these pets and their families. ETSN allows people to keep their cherished pets in time of financial crisis rather than surrendering them to area shelters or posting them on Craigslist.

Branching out to hold hands & paws with other local organizations, ETSN can now offer low cost veterinary care at the Paws of Hope Wellness Center and TNR services for feral cat colonies through Appalachian Feral Cat Allies.

ETSN is supported solely on volunteers and donations. If you or your pet would like to help and/or get help and you live in the Tri-Cities area I highly recommend this Non-profit! (423) 289-5548
