Tullahoma Animal Shelter proudly announces its recognition by the Best Friends Animal Society as a no-kill shelter for the year 2022. This significant achievement underscores the shelter’s commitment to providing compassionate care and finding forever homes for all animals in their charge.

Cheryl Rhoads, Animal Control Manager at Tullahoma Animal Shelter, expressed her enthusiasm about this milestone: “Achieving the no-kill status is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff, volunteers, and the Tullahoma community. Our approach has always been about compassion and responsibility towards the animals we care for. This recognition from Best Friends Animal Society is not just an honor, but a reminder of our commitment to every animal that comes through our doors.”

This accomplishment is a result of the shelter’s innovative strategies in animal care, community engagement, and adoption initiatives. The no-kill status is awarded to shelters that achieve a 90% or higher save rate for all animals, a benchmark Tullahoma Animal Shelter has proudly met and exceeded.

The shelter extends its gratitude to the community members, volunteers, and local veterinarians who have played a crucial role in this achievement. Tullahoma Animal Shelter continues to welcome the support of the community through volunteering, donations, and adoption to maintain this prestigious status and improve the lives of animals in need.
