The Reflection Garden Expansion Project

MAC will soon boast a beautiful memorial and reflection garden, designed to enhance our facility and create a special place for pet lovers in our community.  This new garden, inspired by Chattanooga’s own Purple Lady Sonia Young, will be a peaceful place for folks to sit and remember beloved companions and fellow pet lovers who have passed on.

Offering opportunities to install personalized memorials to those treasured individuals, this space will be perfect for reflection and tribute to those whose hearts were so big they should never be forgotten. 

This photo is a representation of the vision, not an actual photo of what will be done to the space.

With loads of flowering plants, a quiet place to sit and a gorgeous pergola to ponder at, this garden is the first phase of an outdoor expansion of MAC. Learn how you can support this special project below.

How To Support the Garden


If you wish to sponsor a specific area or project within the gardens rather than make a general gift, please email the MAC Advancement Team at the email listed below.


Looking for a way to remember a loved one? You will have your special message custom engraved on a stone and added to the garden installation.


We know with you by our side, we can transform the grounds at MAC and make the ultimate difference in the lives of animals.


Want to donate your time? We are looking for individuals and groups to spend a day helping us prep and plant the grounds.


For questions regarding sponsorship, gifts in memory or in honor of someone, or donations towards this project, please email Lauren Mann, or call (423) 305-6500 x8.


For questions about volunteering your time to help us grow, please email Austin Adderholt, or call (423) 305-6500 x6.
