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 one cat FIV/FELV test per month.
  • For $50 monthly ($1.66/day), we can completely vaccinate one dog or cat each month.
  • 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!
