About Us


We have been able to avoid euthanasia for all healthy and social pets since December 18, 2013. This is a record for our small shelter.

We are working on increasing foster homes for sick and/or pregnant cats so we can start saving their lives too. If you are in the East TN area and interested in fostering cats temporarily please email us to be added to the database. When a need arises, we email all and hope for a response!

Adopting A Friend

We charge $35 for all spays and neuters. There is a $35 dog adoption fee and a $15 cat adoption fee. We accept cash or check only, no cards. All animals, except very young puppies and kittens, go straight to the vet to be neutered prior to going to their new home.

Who We Are

ECCAS is an open-admission, municipal shelter serving Carter County, Tennessee. In addition to adoptions, we work with rescue groups and other shelters nationwide to prevent euthanasia of our adoptable pets.
