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.
