The Humane Society of Anderson County is a small, stand-alone, non-profit 501c(3) serving the Oak Ridge and Anderson County, Tennessee area since 1972. We are committed to offering low cost, safe spay/neuter options for members of our community.

Our goal is to help reduce our community’s pet overpopulation problem in a humane manner. As a local non-profit, we are not affiliated with, nor do we receive any funding from the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) or the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

The most efficient way to make a positive impact in our community is to donate directly to a local non-profit. We work every day to be a voice for those without one.
