Take the Rockwood / Harriman exit off of I-40 and turn left towards Rockwood. In a short while, you will pass Fowler’s Furniture store on your right – go 7/10 of a mile and you will see a green road sign (on the right) for Manufacturers Road & the Animal Center. Turn right on that road; we’re the only building on the road.
