Tennessee Humane Animal League Pet Placement Center

Who We Are

The Tennessee Humane Animal League (THAL) is a 501(c)3 organization devoted to the placement of homeless or surrendered dogs and cats through The Pet Placement Center (PPC). The original intent of PPC when it was formed in 1983 was to help the homeless dogs and cats housed at the now closed Red Bank Animal Shelter. Now PPC is the oldest no-kill animal adoption center with a physical shelter facility in Hamilton County, Tennessee. We survive entirely on donations and fundraising activities. PPC is a private adoption center and does not contract with any municipal entity. Once an animal comes to PPC, that animal will remain safe with us until adopted into a responsible, permanent home.


What We Do

The mission of Tennessee Humane Animal League’s Pet Placement Center is: to reduce animal suffering by promoting intelligent animal care through education and example; to find responsible homes for lost or abandoned animals or for those pets whose owners can no longer keep them; to promote spaying or neutering of dogs and cats in order to reduce and control the millions of unnecessary and unwanted animal births; and to emphasize responsible guardianship which includes proper and decent feeding, available water, shelter, necessary vaccinations and exercise.

 All of our cats and dogs go home spay/neutered, rabies, vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped.
