Looking to get in touch with us?

Although we work 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, we are often away from our desks caring for animals. Please call or text* us at (423) 305-6500 and leave a detailed message with your name and phone number and we will contact you as soon as we are able. Or if you prefer, please email us at hello@mckameyanimalcenter.org.


Please note: We are only able to provide services like animal intakes to residents and pets of the cities of Chattanooga, Red Bank and Lakesite; if you live outside those jurisdictions, please contact your local animal services agency.
