Proposed Carter County
Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic

Carter County in Northeast Tennessee is one of the lowest socioeconomic areas in the state.  With over 19% of the people below the poverty line, our residents cannot afford to spay or neuter their cats and dogs. This has led to ever-increasing over-population of feral, stray and abandoned animals. 

The Friends of the Elizabethton-Carter County Animal Shelter is raising money to build, and then run, a low-cost clinic. The plan is to staff this facility with a full-time veterinarian and vet techs.  This much-needed clinic will offer low-cost spays, neuters, vaccinations and flea and worm medications to Carter County and surrounding counties. 

Our residents want to give their pets the best health care possible but cannot afford the medical costs to do that.

We need your help as the only thing slowing us down is how quickly we can raise the money to build this clinic!

Proposed Site Location

The proposed site for the Carter County Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic is next to the Carter County Animal Shelter at 135 Sycamore Shoals Drive in Elizabethton, Tennessee. The lot has been cleared and the site plan approved by the City of Elizabethton.

We are currently working on identifying vendors for infrastructure design and building. Several contractors in the area have shown interest in helping the shelter; we just need the funds to start the projects!

Proposed Building Design

While we are still in the early stages of building design, we have been working with MBCI on some initial plans. Shannon Posada, Animal Shelter Director has been involved in all planning stages of the clinic.

We will post updates to the design as they become available.
