Our Mission


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 litter pans. If you are interested in donating specific equipment, large items, or monetary contributions, please contact ERAS at 423-664-0271 or eras@eastridgetn.org



Adoption Policy

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. In most cases, our available pets have also been spayed/ neutered and vaccinated against rabies, as well.


We have a bunch of really great dogs and cats and kittens that need your help! Please come visit our pets who are available for adoption, and consider giving one of them a forever home!

 Volunteer opportunities are available at ERAS. Please give us a call or stop by if you're interested!
