EAST RIDGE ANIMAL SERVICES IS NOW A "NO KILL" ANIMAL SHELTER!
For the month of August, ERAS dog adoptions are only $65! Cat adoptions are only $35! Adoptions still include spay/neuter, all vaccines, and de-worming! Please consider giving one of our shelter critters a forever home this year!
ERAS will have several offsite adoption events this summer..... stay tuned to our Facebook page for the latest news!
In most cases, when you come to ERAS and find a new family member, your new pet will be ready to go straight home and begin his/ her new life with your family with no obligation on you to take your adopted friend for the required surgery. This may vary from time to time in respect to puppies and kittens; however, these animals will receive a certificate to cover the spay/neuter and rabies vaccine.
ERAS always welcomes donations of pet food, unscented non-clumping cat litter, rawhide bones, slip leashes, pet carriers and crates, metal food bowls, plastic and litter pans. If you are interested in donating specific equipment, large items, or monetary contributions, please contact ERAS Supervisor Andrea Dillard at 423-664-0271 or firstname.lastname@example.org
When choosing a new furry family member, please consider adopting from your local shelter. East Ridge Animal Services welcomes you to come by our shelter and visit with our animals. If you find a pet on-line that interests you, please feel free to call our office with any questions you may have, or simply come see us at East Ridge Animal Shelter!
All of our adoptable animals have received initial vaccinations and have been de-wormed. In most cases, our available pets have also been spayed/ neutered and vaccinated against rabies, as well.
