Mission: The mission of Wally's Friends™ is to dramatically impact the numbers of unwanted animals destroyed in shelters and starving on the streets.
Results: We have spayed/neutered more than 54,500 animals since November 2006!
Geographic areas served: We provide transport to 13 counties surrounding Hamilton County. Warren, Sequachie, Rhea, Bledsoe, Walker, Chattooga, Catoosa, Dade, Grudy, Marion, Polk, Whitfield, & Gordon Counties.
Programs: During 2014, the organization provided affordable and accessible spay and neuter services to hamilton county and 14 surrounding rural counties. A total of 10,664 animals were spayed and neutered at the clinic during 2014. The organization also provides information on the importance of spay and neuter as a strategic method of prevention, and therefore euthanasia of shelter animals.

They refuse to hire people of color to work or volunteer. Recently, I called on behalf of my daughter, and the conversation went well. She asked pertinent questions that made me believe she was very interested. Then, I relaxed, and my African American vernacular must have come through. This Executive Director couldn’t get off the phone fast enough. Initially, she asked that I send a copy of my daughter’s resume... So I did. She neither replied, (giving the dignity of a response), nor acknowledgement of receipt.
I greatly appreciate the work these folks do to reduce the population of reproducing adult population of both owned & wild animals by providing low cost spay/neuter surgeries. I'm a frequent client who takes advantage of this great TNR resource in our community.
