We take in many special needs animals that many other shelters will not take in. We take care of any ailment or surgery that needs to be done on any animal we rescue including, but not limited to; heart worm treatment, cruciate ligament repair, patella surgery, FHO, heart surgery, diabetes, anxiety disorders, auto immune deficiencies, and liver shunts.

On average, Kingsport Pet Adoption Center takes in at least one animal per week that has one of the above ailments or needs surgery. We do not believe that any animal should be left to be euthanized at a high kill facility because they are sick or injured. Society has already failed them at one point in time and someone needs to speak up and rescue those that are defenseless and without a voice.

That is who we are are and that is what Kingsport Pet Adoption Center has always been about. These ailments and surgeries are extremely expensive, and we need the communities help to not leave these poor souls to be discarded with no one to care for them. Kingsport Pet Adoption Center is a non-profit, so we rely heavily on private donations.

NOTE: While every donation is greatly appreciated, donation thank you letters can only be sent for donation amounts of $100 or more to allow as much funding as possible to go towards saving animals. This applies to general donations. If a donation is made ‘in honor of’, ‘in memory of’, or as a gift, notification of the donation will always be sent regardless of the donation amount.
