Over 6,000 pets fixed so far!

At only 1 litter of 5 each, that's more than 30,000 prevented!

Our Mission
East Tennessee Spay & Neuter (ETSN) is a non-profit corporation. Our sole purpose is to end the use of euthanasia for companion animals. We do this by providing a cohesive group of programs designed to help the community, especially low-income families, keep their pets healthy and OUT of the shelter.
We believe this is the best way to achieve our goal. "The most important thing we want the people of Carter County and surrounding areas to know is that there ARE low-cost alternatives for spay-neuter, pet food, and veterinary care. We feel that keeping the animals OUT of the shelter in the first place is the best solution for everyone!"
- Danika Nadzan, Founder of ETSN

With so many area shelters closing their intakes to needy pets from the public they serve, we understand what it takes to focus on pet retention in those homes. We want all homes to be "fur-ever" homes. Our cohesive programs are designed to do just that.

ETSN is a nonprofit corporation. We are not affiliated with any clinic, shelter, rescue group, or humane society. We do not receive any federal, state, or local government funds, and rely on donations, grants, and volunteer support.
