If you are interested in adopting Ben please phone 276-988-5795 to arrange to meet him. Adoption hours are Monday-Friday: 12pm-5pm. See our adoption information here.

Dogs are claimed, adopted and rescued everyday so please contact us to check that this dog is available.

Dogs picked up as strays are kept for 7 days if it does not have collar or 12 days if it has a collar so that the owner can claim it before we can put the dog up for adoption. If you are interested in a particular dog before its available date please contact us. We would like a dog to go to a new home or rescue as soon as possible after its "available" date.

Adoption fee for a dog is $50 which includes spay/neuter and rabies vaccination. Payment is by cash - we cannot accept card payments at this time. For animals that have not been spayed or neutered: adoptions are open to residents of Tazewell, Buchanan, Russell, Bland and Smyth County. If an animal is already spayed or neutered then it is available to be adopted by anyone (even out of state residents). Phone to check that the dog is available and what paperwork is required from you.

Make sure that you are able to take your dog home on the day you adopt it. We will not keep a dog for you after its "available" day.
