Stray Animals vs. Spay & Neuter

The stray cat and dog population in Loudon County could be largely controlled with the responsible actions from all pet owners in getting their animals spayed or neutered.  This would stop unwanted breeding of animals when they are “let out” to roam or go to the bathroom.  People should report stray animals to the Loudon County Animal Shelter so that they can be removed from this cycle.  Contact the animal shelter at  (865) 458-5593.

2013 Adoption Results

Loudon County Friends Of Animals is pleased that they were directly involved in saving the lives of over 310 animals in 2013.  This included the adoption and rescue of 244 animals from the Loudon County Animal Shelter.   We also took into rescue and found homes for many residents needing help rehoming their animals here in Loudon County along with TNR of several local feral colonies.

Loudon County Friends of Animals is a group of caring dedicated volunteers who are working hard to rescue and place the animals that find their way into the public shelter system.  The animal shelter in Loudon County, Tennessee does not have the resources, financial backing, space or manpower, to house all the stray and surrendered animals on an indefinite basis.  Therefore, the clock starts ticking for these animals at the moment that they are deemed ready for adoption.  Our primary mission is to work to insure that as many animals as possible are rescued through either direct adoption, or placement into the foster care system before the clock stops ticking and their time is up.  In the meantime, we also support spay/neuter programs and trap and release effort (TNR) of feral cat colonies in order to reduce the number of animals being born which might eventually find their way into the shelter system.  Please help us make a difference!

Fleas and Ticks

It is affordable to protect your animals from fleas and tick year round.  With the relatively warm winter in our region this year, fleas and ticks are expected to be abundant this year.

 

Did you know that Fleas can transmit tapeworms to your pets?  This happens when the flea carries the tapeworm larva in it’s body and your pet ingests the flea by licking, biting or chewing the pesky insect.

 

You can protect your animal by using products like Advantage, Advantix, Frontline, or Comfortis.  These products can all be purchased at a highly discounted rate through the PPAW (People Promoting Animal Welfare).

 

The product known as Revolution will kill fleas, flea eggs, ticks, ear mites, round worms, hook worms, mange, and is a preventative for  heartworms.  This product is unfortunately available by prescription only.

 

Please visit the PPAW website for discount pricing information.

Spay and Neuter Program

Did you know that there is a low cost spay and neuter facility right here in our own backyard?  Well we do, it is called PPAW, short for People Promoting Animal Welfare.  They are located at 6869 Morganton Road in Greenback, TN.

 

Not only is PPAW a low cost spay and neuter facility, they offer discounted fees for low income families through various grants from local charities and sponsorship programs such as PetsMart.
