Founded in 1974, the Sevier County Humane Society is a full service animal shelter and we receive 4500-5000 lost, abandoned, surrendered, homeless pets a year. We turn no animal away, except for wildlife which Tennessee State law prohibits us from handling. But we are more than cats and dogs!! Our animal shelter has housed horses, pigs, rabbits, chicken, geese, rats and even an iguana.

Your Humane Society is a private non-profit organization governed by a board of directors and employs an Executive Director and a full time, dedicated staff. Operating primarily on donations and community support, all contributions are appreciated and used to create a safe, healthy and comfortable environment for the animals that come into our care.

- Executive Director, CAET

The animals are such a special gift,
Benefitting us in countless ways…
They are eyes for the blind,
And ears for the deaf.
They are our protectors,
And loyal companions,
In our darkest hours.
Never underestimate
the insurmountable ways,
They serve us,
For it is infinite…
I consider it an honor,
To be able to serve “them…”
