The wonderful Miss Tri-Cities Queen contestants made a BIG impact in the community yesterday!! Collectively, they donated 4,059 pounds of food and litter (a portion of it is pictured) for the Unicoi County Animal Shelter. How awesome is that? 💪

Also, they are FULLY funding 51 spay/neuter surgeries for pet families through the Jurnee's Journey Foundation (give her page a like and follow please) ❤️

Through her and her contestants, we have received over 86,000 lbs of donations since 2017!!! They have also helped other shelters too!! Please thank them ❤️

Thank you to Aric, Christy, Diane, and the staff at Maple Grove for donating over 100 meals of wonderful food (spaghetti, meat sauce, and garlic bread) and working so hard to put it all together. Aric and Diane are in the picture in front of Maple Grove.

Thank you to Jacob at Food City for providing all the drinks to everyone to put with the food.

Thank you to everyone who bought other supplies, helped organize and coordinate, and a big thank you for everyone that worked the event.

And we want to give a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who purchased tickets or donated meals to others.

It really is amazing when you sit back and look at how many people truly care about animals and are wanting to make a difference.

It is a really beautiful thing ❤️

Do you recognize this individual? this person was caught on camera stealing a bench from the Wags to Riches thrift store. If you know who this person is please let us know by PM, you can even do it anonymously.
I hate that it's come to this but over the past couple of months we've seen a drastic increase in the theft of our donations and personal property. We are a charity that helps the animals of Washington County. If you're stealing from us then it is directly affecting our ability to care for the animals and that's not OK.
Please help us by only dropping off donations during our business hours and if you recognize who this individual is, please let us know.

Meet Coal Miners Daughter!!! She is around 4-5 years old. She is a Shepherd mix. CMD is dog friendly and lived with another dog previously. We have tested her with other dogs here at the shelter, she is very submissive. We have tested her with cats and she completely ignores them.

CMD is very shy but does love belly rubs. A volunteer was walking her today and she threw herself on the ground and rolled over for the volunteer to rub her belly.

CMD is an almost perfect dog, if you would like to add her to your almost perfect family, please fill out the app @

JADED and MR. GRAY!

Jaded is on the left and Mr. Gray on the right. They do not have to be adopted together. Both are around 2 years old. They are cat friendly and kid friendly. They would probably do better in a home with children over the age of 10. They will be scared and shy at first but once they come out of their she'll, they are the biggest lovers. They will only be adopted out to be indoor only cats. They are both currently in a foster home, so if would like to meet them, an appointment would need to be scheduled and an application would have to be filled out.
