Whiskey and Echo
Whiskey and Echo are littermates that we rescued at the beginning of this year. They are both spayed females, 3 years old. Both weigh between 45-50 pounds now. They are supposedly border collie, heeler, Lab mixes. They are housetrained. They are VERY bonded, and I would hate for them to lose each other. They are heartworm-negative and on preventative, and up-to-date on rabies vaccinations. After vet checks and opinions, we have decided that Whiskey, the black one, was hit by a car at some point and not treated. After losing weight and a lot of therapy, she gets around great now, with barely a hint of a limp unless you know what to look for. BOTH girls were tattooed in their previous "home." The tattoos are located on their belly and not spay tattoos. They definitely prefer women and are fairly skittish of men, at least in the beginning. They play great with my boys but still really only like my husband when he is on the floor and not standing. I've had them around other dogs and in a dog park with no real issue but Echo, especially, is a bit fence aggressive with other dogs. Once the fence is gone, she is fine. The two of them eat side-by-side with no food aggression. I love these girls, but we have an existing geriatric dog who is having a hard time with their energy level. They aren't aggressive to him, they just run him over easily and knock him down when they are excited and he is in the way. He is having a much harder time recovering each time, and we need to find them a new home. If you might be the one to provide them a loving forever home, please email or phone Tess: or 423-280-5928.

Miss Kitty
Miss Kitty is approximately 8 years old and weighs 11 pounds. She is a gray, black, and white tabby. She was rescued by her mom in Chattanooga coming out from underneath a car at CVS. Her mom thought she had broken her right paw, and she brought her back to Oak Ridge to take her to the vet. She was born with a deformed paw; however, it doesn't stop her from play and running. Miss Kitty is a very sweet, loving cat. She will sit in your lap for hours to be petted and loved on. Her front paws have been declawed, so she is an indoor cat. She loves to lie in the sunshine. She gets along well with cats, dogs and LOVES children. She is up to date on all her shots. Her mom has been diagnosed with severe osto, along with back problems. Due to the fact Miss Kitty wants to play and run, she will jump in front of her mom and has nearly tripped her several times. It has been a hard decision to make, but due to the well-being of her mom, it is best if she finds her a forever, loving home. Can you give her that home? Please call (865)481-1961. If we are not home, please leave a message for Cathy. [Posted 10/20/2018]

Apollo needs a new home. My husband and I have retired and are downsizing to a small house without much yard. Apollo LOVES to be outdoors and is very happy to spend much of his time in the woods. His food and water dishes are outside on our front porch and even though he's outside, we usually see him several times a day. He sleeps in the swing on the porch. He is friendly, likes to be petted, and likes children. Apollo is 6 years old, weighs about 10 pounds, and is up-to-date on all of his shots. He has been well taken care of by the staff at Jackson Square Animal Clinic for the 5 years we have had him. He is chipped and neutered. Please call me at (865)482-7922 if you might be able to give Apollo a good home. [Posted 10/06/2018]

I need to find my cat Dixie a new home. Dixie is very well adjusted; she has been spayed and declawed. She is a tuxedo cat with a white chin, white chest and four white paws. She is about seven years old. All of her shots are up to date. She has been very well taken care of and has been kept inside my house since I got her as a kitten. My cell phone is (865)250-3373. Please text before calling so I will know it's not a robocall. [Posted 08/22/2018]

Doddy is one of a litter of 9 that I rescued in August 2016, when they were a month old. I must find him a home, foster home, or rescue. I am moving for school and cannot take him with me. He weighs approximately 50 pounds, and his date of birth is July 12, 2016. He's up to date on all his shots and heartworm preventative and is neutered and crate-trained. Doddy knows some basic commands -- sit, stay, lay down -- but he pulls like crazy on a leash (We have a fenced yard, and he does not get walked on a leash often). He's a great dog. He has not been around cats since he was a puppy, but he loves other dogs. Good with kids. Not food or toy aggressive. He loves to be your pillow and sleep in the bed with you. He is silly and awkward and so lovable. Please get in touch with me ASAP if you can give Doddy a loving home as part of your family. Angel Ryker, 865-255-7670, [Posted 06/22/2018]

It is with a very sad heart that I am looking to rehome our dog, Brooklyn. She is a black Lab mix, 5 years old, weighs 45 pounds, and is housetrained. We adopted Brooklyn 4 years ago, and while she is a sweet and kind girl, she has severe separation anxiety. We recently lost our other dog and this has increased her anxiety. Brooklyn is absolutely fine when someone is with her and home. When she is alone, she is fine too, unless a bad storm comes in unexpectedly. She is currently on medication for separation anxiety, and once she has a home where people are home more than not, she does not need the medication. Please e-mail Tracy at or call (949)462-4164 for more information. [Posted 06/11/2018]


Boots Britches

Boots and Britches are two male long-haired domestic cats, neutered, declawed, 5 years old, sweet but lonely. The owner passed away last Sunday, and her wish was for them to be adopted together. Her brother says they must go IMMEDIATELY, one way or another. The deceased owner has had these two boys since kittens. It is extremely urgent that these kitties find a home right away. Please contact Sherma Elliott at cell number (865)805-6259 or work (865)777-2275. [Posted 05/07/2018]


Doodle Bug Scrapper

These are two playful and loving kitties. I have two outdoor male cats, approximately one year old, that I need to find homes for because of coyote invasion. Doodle Bug is grey and white, and Scrapper is grey tabby and white. They have both been neutered and had their shots. I have also put Revolution on them each month. I have raised them outside from kittens. I would take them inside my home, but I have an older, sick cat that would not tolerate them. I have tamed them to where they love having their tummies petted as they sit on my lap. When my husband fed them they rubbed up against his hand and legs. They are currently boarded at the vet because of the coyote danger. Their mother was recently killed, and I don't want the same thing to happen to them. They are in urgent need of a home! Please contact me (Becky) by phone at (865)922-2373. [Posted 03/24/2018]

Happy Tails -- Pets Adopted or Pending


Our vet thinks Luke may be a chocolate Lab/golden retriever mix. He looks a lot like an Irish setter. He's about 8 months old (as of September, 2018) and weighs close to 40 pounds. Luke was rescued from Cocke County where, sadly, he was going to be used as a bait dog. He was malnourished and had a staph infection from flea infestation. At this point he is healthy and handsome, except that he unfortunately has hip dysplasia and an allergy to fleas. His Seresto collar is doing the job, though, and he is free of fleas. He needs glucosamine chews and fish oil for his hip dysplasia. We have a lot and will of course give it to his new owners. The specialists at UT Vet Hospital say that he should do only short walks because of the hip dysplasia, so a very active environment probably wouldn't work for him. He's been neutered and vaccinated. The reason we are trying to find Luke another home is that he is his happiest with other dogs, and we do not want two dogs. And we're just not "bonding" well. He also chases our cats, but he is not at all aggressive, and I don't think he would hurt them. He loves children and being around people. When our family or friends bring their dogs over, Luke is so happy and just a different guy altogether, so we think he needs a family that can give him a lot of love and attention, preferably including a friendly canine companion. Please call (865)482-3749 or email if you are interested in meeting Luke. We will ask for references. [Posted 09/29/2018]

Update, 9/27/18: Amazingly, Buddy has already been adopted and taken to his new home in Chicago!!
Hello there! I'm Buddy, a 10-year-old, adorable 'n cuddly male Pomeranian! I have been neutered and had all my shots updated just recently! I also have a Ceresto flea collar good for another seven months. I love to sit with you and share your bed if you will let me! If you are alone, I would make a really good companion for you! I love taking short walks and enjoying some fresh air with you, but I'm also happy just keeping you company! I enjoy being brushed and playing with my toys.

My present owners have been wonderful to me and often give me chicken for my dinner as apposed to dry dog food, although I will eat that too. They don't want to give me up, but must due to their many health problems. If you take me home with you, I promise to give you as much love as I have them. Yours truly, Buddy

Rosalina is a 10-month-old Siberian husky with a loving and endearing personality. She loves people and gets along really well with other dogs. She is looking for an owner who can spend lots of time with her and provide plenty of exercise. Rosalina was purchased by her original owner at 5 weeks of age to be a companion to a male German shepherd puppy who was a little older than her. He had a tendency to be a bit too aggressive with her. Due to being an outside-only dog without a structured routine or a lot of consistent human interaction, and being bullied by her older canine brother, Rosalina began to display some signs of anxiety. This anxiety resulted in her obsessively licking her feet, causing hair loss and sores. Her owner loved her very much, but was unable to make her an inside dog or separate her from the shepherd to help reduce her anxiety. It was decided that it was in Rosalina's best interest to find a new home where she could live inside and be provided with a regular daily schedule. She just wants to interact with and be a part of the family. She has so much love to give! Rosalina is white and tan in color with blue eyes and weighs about 50 pounds. She is already spayed, is up to date on vaccinations and has consistently been on heartworm and flea/tick preventatives.

Inky Brittany

Inky and Brittany are a bonded brother and sister pair of lab/hound mixes who are 18 months old. They are fixed, housetrained, and crate-trained. They are up to date on shots and vet visits. Inky is a 52-pound black male who never meets a stranger and loves food. Brittany is a 48-pound tan female who loves to run and is a little more timid until she gets to know someone. With a little training, she can overcome her slight fear of people. We are seeking one home for this brother and sister. They love to run and are in a house with three cats and children from 8-15 years of age. [Posted 03/12/2018]


Bessie Jo
Bessie Jo is an active and loving dog ready for a great home. Bessie is intelligent and determined, and will work hard for treats. She is an excellent house dog and prefers to be indoors by your side. Bessie's favorite activities include sleeping on the couch, cuddling, and sniffing everything. She absolutely LOVES people! If you have visitors to your home, she makes sure to let them know she loves them. Bessie is a big girl at 75 pounds. She gets along with other dogs well, as she loves to play. She gets along and has cuddled with our 2 cats that she's been around since she was a puppy. Bessie is a very special girl! Please email if you can give Bessie Jo a loving home as part of your family.

Update 7/2/18: We are thrilled to report that Confetti and Lulu have found a new home together!

Confetti and Lulu have for years lived together with three small dogs in a home where they were loved and cared for. They had two adult caretakers who loved each other as well as their animal family. Unfortunately, tragic events have forever changed this loving household, beginning with the death of one caretaker two years ago and the subsequent failing health of the other. This caretaker has been hospitalized at the Veterans Hospital in Johnson City, TN for four months. While he is fighting hard to recover and return home, the date of his release remains uncertain. He has reached the decision that attempts should be made to find new, loving homes for his sweet cats.

Both animals are healthy and up to date with inoculations and topical flea/tick protection. They have been spayed and are thoroughly litter-trained. It would be preferable if Lulu and Confetti could stay together, but each deserves a loving home and if that can only be accomplished by separation, then so be it. Please call Jackie Bernard at (865)482-4532 if you are interested in providing a permanent home for Lulu and/or Confetti. [Posted 03/25/2018]

CONFETTI                                LULU

Confetti Lulu

CONFETTI is a smokey grey girl with gold flecks throughout her fluffy coat. The gold flecks match her eyes and were the inspiration for her name. She is very affectionate, both with her animal friends and her human caregivers. She speaks softly and will only raise the volume when confronted with a stressful situation (such as a forced entry into a cat carrier!).

LULU was born with tuxedo markings and wears them proudly to this day. Her black coat glistens and contrasts perfectly with her snowy markings and golden eyes. She is a beautiful girl who takes a little time to warm up to new humans but once she does, she is an excellent conversationalist who tends to speak loudly and with feeling. She loves it when you join her.
