Animal Shelter Hours Change – Feb 2019

{Stacey McElhaney, Director Roane County Animal Shelter}

Beginning Monday, January 7, 2019, the Roane County Animal Shelter realigned the operating schedule to meet the increasing demand of service. The shelter will be closed to the public on Monday of each week. Hours of operation for Tuesday through Saturday will remain 10am through 4pm. We have made so many positive changes over the past year and we are diligently working to keep improving. Mondays will be utilized for spay/neuter day, ongoing staff training, scheduled maintenance/ repairs and cleaning. This day also allows the Volunteer Veterinarian to evaluate and aid in maintaining healthy and happy shelter pets. Thank you all so much for your ongoing support!

The 5th Annual Santa Paws was a holiday success thanks to Earl Duff Subaru, the ASPCA, the Roane County Animal Shelter Staff, Planned Pethood, Santa, and lots of amazing volunteers. Four cats and fourteen dogs met their new families. Thanks to the ASPCA grant All adoptable pets were spayed, neutered, and rabies vaccinated allowing the Animal Shelter to waive all fees. Pet owners paid $5 to get their pet’s photo taken with Santa. There were raffles, door prizes and by the end of the day, they raised $850.

Shelter Procedures Handbook – Sept 2018

{Stacey McElhaney – Director Roane County Animal Shelter}

Roane County Animal Control and Shelter Procedures Handbook: Director McElhaney is currently reviewing and revising the Roane County Animal Control and Shelter Procedures Handbook. Some of the most recent changes have been the Guidelines for Rescue Groups, the Volunteer Application Form, and the Animal Foster Application Form. In reviewing the shelter policies, we found there was a discrepancy between our work with rescue/foster groups and zoning regulations from 2008 limiting the number of pets a household can have on premises. Director McElhaney formed an informal group of rescuers, fosters, zoning regulators, and other interested parties to identify the main issue and together they developed a plan that meets the needs of all those who have been affected.
