Your donation to The Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley (HSTV) goes straight to work helping animals – and helping us realize our vision of ending euthanasia of adoptable animals in East Tennessee by 2025. There are many ways you can support our efforts.

Monthly giving

Monthly giving allows you to conveniently support HSTV with any amount you choose. Your donation can be made via bank withdrawals, credit card, or monthly check. Your donation goes a long way. For $15 monthly (.50/day), we can buy one bag of dog food each month. For $30 monthly ($1/day), we can buy one heartworm test or 1 cat FIV/FELV test per month. $50 monthly ($1.66/day) allows us to completely vaccinate one dog or cat each month. And for $100 monthly ($3.33/day), we can spay/neuter one dog or cat each month.


One-time giving

Financial support is the backbone of every animal shelter, and the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley is no exception. Our adoption fees barely cover the expense of housing an animal during its stay with us. We depend on the generosity of people like you to continue to transport homeless animals to our facility and make them available for adoption. Once here, they are vaccinated, micro-chipped and altered before they can even be placed into permanent homes. You can be confident that HSTV will use your donation wisely to help us achieve our ultimate goal of a no-kill East Tennessee by 2025.

Memorials and honorariums

Donations to HSTV are a great way to honor and memorialize loved ones, including pets. Monthly or one-time donations can be made to celebrate anyone you choose. If requested, we can even send a card to the family of those being celebrated.


Ongoing needs

At HSTV we have many ongoing needs to keep our animals happy and healthy. A great way to support HSTV is to give donations of some basic items we away need – holding a supply drive in your office or in lieu of birthday gifts is a fun way to help us out!

HSTV’s Howl-A-Day Wish List

Every wish that we have at HSTV is focused on bettering the lives of the animals in our temporary care. Please help us maintain the standards that we have set for them by contributing to OUR Wish list. Your donation will go toward:

A new anesthesia machine for our clinic $4,500

Much needed improvements to our kitten/cat area $5,000-&7,000

Surgery Heart Rate Monitor $2,000

Adult Kennels

HSTV is seeking donations for the purchase of new cages and runs that will house 14 dogs. Housing will include two 10′ units of six cages as well as two large dog runs. The two dog runs will allow us to accommodate more large and high-energy dogs, a population that is at a high risk for euthanasia in many high-volume shelters such as many of our partner shelters. The new 10′ caging units will provide us with safe, well-functioning housing compatible with our new floor plan. These cages will replace some older stacked cages that no longer function safely or easily. The new cages will allow more dogs to be at ground level and house those who are not safely.

Our original goal for this project was $20,000 but thanks to a $10,000 grant from PetSafe and a $5,000 grant from Clayton we only need $5,000. Donate today and help us raise the $5,000.
