Here at Scripps Radio Knoxville, our community is our family. So we're taking time every month on all 4 Scripps Radio Knoxville stations to spotlight local charitable causes that serve our community's needs with our 'Giving Light Initiative'. Each chosen non-profit cause receives $10,000 worth of promotional and commercial support to highlight their charity and the selfless work they do to help our friends and neighbors in East Tennessee.
This month's charity is Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley
In this crazy world, the one thing you can count on is the unconditional love of a pet. Yet, an estimated 30,000 dogs and cats are euthanized yearly in East Tennessee. The Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley has a mission to end euthanasia of adoptable animals in 33 East Tennessee Counties. The solution spells ASK. Adopt, Spay, and Keep. The Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley averages 5 pet adoptions each day, and they spayed and neutered nearly 3,000 animals last year, all done at a financial loss by staff and over 900 volunteers who love and care for animals. HSTV also offers programs that help struggling pet owners keep their furry family members in troubled times. They’re not supported by the city, county or a national organization, and get no funding via tax dollars. Only by donations of animal lovers like you. Helping loving pets get forever homes isn’t too much to ASK. Adopt, Spay, Keep.
