Pet Food Pantry

Pet Food Pantry Program

Our Pet Food Pantry helps keep Pets and People Together! We not only serve Knox county residents but we are now on the move helping the communities we serve in East Tennessee.  Our goal is to impact one additional county a month to help keep pets in homes and out of area shelters.

On April 24th we will be back in Anderson County.  Stay tuned for location by checking our website or Facebook page.

If you are in need before that date you can always send an email to pethelp@humanesocietytennessee.org to make an appointment to come to our animal shelter in Knoxville.  Please include the names, weights, species and age of your animals and the type of food they eat now.  We can’t guarantee we have the same food but we will try our best to give you a similar brand.  At this time we do not carry any prescription food.

We are proud to be helping keep Pets and People Together through our Pet Food Pantry!  For the more fortunate, who don’t need assistance, please consider donating and we will go and buy the items for you or drop off food, treats or litter outside our Pet Help entrance anytime.  Need more info?  Just email the program manager by clicking here.  Thank you for helping to keep families and their pets together!

Flea, Tick, and Heartworm

Flea and Tick products are sold at our Wellness Clinic, every other Monday, and our Adoption Center during normal business hours.  Heartworm Preventative is only sold to individuals with proof of purchase of heartworm preventative in the last 30 days or proof of a negative heartworm test in the last 30 days.  All other animals will have to schedule an appointment at our Wellness Clinic for a heartworm test, and have a negative result, in order to purchase the product from us.  If you have questions or need an appointment, please email our PetHelp team PetHelp@humanesocietytennessee.org
