Thank you for your interest in adopting a fur baby in need of a loving family! Please complete the application below and an adoption coordinator will be in touch with you to discuss your application and see if we have a good fit for you! 

*Completion of the application below does not guarantee your adoption will be approved and does not HOLD an animal you are interested in. Applications are reviewed on a first come first serve basis, and applicants are interviewed to find the BEST home for the animal in question. We WELCOME anyone to apply to adopt, and we will do our best to work with you to find the BEST fit for your home. Please NOTE, we have MANY that may not be listed on this page. We try to keep it as updated as possible, but availability changes daily. We usually have over 30 cats in care and dogs vary. PLEASE if you are interested in adopting and do not see someone today you are interested, complete an application to get pre-approved and as soon as we have a match you will be first in line! 

Smith County Humane can always use good FOSTERS too! Fostering is a great way to help an animal in need while looking for the perfect fit for your family! IF you are interested in fostering, complete the foster application HERE

NOTE: ALL DOGS/CATS Adopted from Smith County Humane WILL BE SPAYED OR NEUTERED before adoption (unless not sexually mature) under Tennessee Law. If the dog/cat is not of age or size to be spayed or neutered, a spay/neuter contract and deposit  will be required as per Tennessee State Law or the animal would remain in foster to adopt status UNTIL spay/neuter is completed. ALL Dogs/Cats will be vetted, be up to date on vaccinations, have current rabies shot before going to their adoptive family. 

Thank you for choosing Smith County Humane!
