Every day, animals arrive at Young-Williams Animal Center in search of safety, shelter, care and love. As the open-intake shelter for both Knox County and the city of Knoxville, we care for more than 10,000 animals each year. Pets arrive lost, injured, abandoned and vulnerable. Here, thanks to your donations, they receive the highest quality care while we search to find them loving homes.
Last year, we found adoptive families for more pets and reunited more lost pets than ever before. You will likely see some of the 6,000+ pets that were adopted last year in this contest! The impact your votes and entries have doesn’t stop there. Through our Pet Resource Center, thousands of families received support to keep their pets in their home. Last year, we provided over 18 TONS of free pet food to low-income pet owners struggling to meet their pet’s basic needs.
Enter your pet for their chance to shine and give vulnerable animals the chance to feel the same love you share with your furry friend.
Every dollar donated through our 2023 Pet Calendar Contest supports the life-saving programs at Young-Williams Animal Center. Your donation means more happy reunions, more furever families, and more lives saved.
Young-Williams Animal Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit and rely on support from our community to achieve our vision of A Home for Every Pet.
