Not every pet is fortunate enough to live inside, so BCAWS works to improve the well-being of outside dogs and cats by ensuring they have adequate shelter and allow them to stay in their homes.

Our overall mission is to:

• Improve the well-being of outside dogs and cats in Blount County, Tennessee.

•Decrease the population of dogs and cats through free spay/neuter services.

• Educate the public about the plight of many outside dogs.

• Promote the establishment and enforcement of animal welfare laws that protect companion animals from cruelty and neglect.

• Enlist community involvement in animal welfare initiatives.

•Thanks to donations and our all-volunteer organization, we are able to provide safe shelter to outside cats and dogs, enclosure fencing to get dogs off the chain, plus spay and neuter and other medical services.
