I have volunteered at McKamey for 3 years walking dogs, greeting clients, helping with off-site adoptions, etc., and I have seen first hand what a loving and caring organization it really is. The animals are extremely well taken care of. The facility is clean and well maintained. Every effort is made to find forever homes for the lucky animals that are there.

McKamey Animal Center has dedicated staff that demonstrate a love for the animals they serve, and people who visit express amazement at both the facility and the condition in which it is maintained. I especially love to see the happiness shared by visitors and the animals receiving attention. It is a place where volunteers can experience the love of the animals and find joy in seeing them find forever homes. It is the most rewarding volunteer experience I've ever had. John Williams

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.
