The purpose of the Greeneville - Greene County Humane Society is to prevent cruelty to animals and to relieve suffering among animals through the extension of humane education to children, as well as to adults; the enforcement of existing statutes and laws against cruelty to animals by instituting proceedings in cooperation with law enforcement and judicial agencies; and operating a humane animal shelter. We are a "no" kill shelter - meaning that we only euthanize if an animal is aggressive or is severely injured or ill and can't reasonably be treated. All our animals stay with us until they are adopted.
We are a non-profit private agency.
We do not take any city, county, state or federal funds. We operate solely on private donations.
If you have a stray situation in Greene County, please contact Greene County Animal Control at (423) 798-1777. The Animal Control Facility is also located on Hal Henard Road. It is managed by the Department of Health for Greene County.
Our adoption process is very simple. You will be interviewed to ensure it's a good match between you and the pet you're interested in adopting. Our fee includes the mandatory spaying or neutering, microchip, vaccinations appropriate to age including Distemper/Parvo vaccine, Bordetella vaccine and Rabies vaccine, and a full vet exam.
Yes, we can do an out of state adoption. You will need to make arrangements for the pet to be paid for, picked up at our Shelter and transported to you. We are not able to hold pets for anyone without full payment.
We are located in Greene County, Tennessee in the city of Greeneville. Take Interstate 81 to Exit 23 (Bulls Gap/Greeneville). If you are heading NORTH - turn right at the bottom of the exit ramp, heading towards Greeneville. If you are heading SOUTH - turn left at the bottom of the exit ramp, heading towards Greeneville. This is 11E - travel approximately 11 miles to Greeneville. You will see a Restaurant with a red, white and blue sign on the left, called "Fat Boys Restaurant" - directly across the street from this restaurant is our road - Hal Henard Road. We are approximately 9/10 mile on that road, on the right - just before the Greene County Animal Control. We are located on top of the hill.
