I went yesterday to the shelter and was appalled. they had three very aggressive dogs that should have been put down. Most of the dogs looked sickly and poorly fed. Many of the dogs were underweught and shivering.
Pros: healthy cats
Cons: sick dogs, agressive dogs, underweight dogs, puppies freezing

Tough Area - Good Shelter
posted 5 years ago
The South in general is a tough area for pets and it's even worse here. The next county over has one shelter run by the local Humane Society (of Hawkins County) whose President (as least as of 2007) is a puppy mill. With that on your doorstep, it's understandable the challenges that the Humane Society of Greater Kingsport faces. Nevertheless, they maintain an up-to-date petfinder site, have a good screening process for homes and have several volunteers that work with fostering and transporting pet. They also have good work going on with education in the community. Is there more that could be done? Of course there is, everywhere, but given the spot they are in (literally and figuratively) their accomplishments border on miraculous.
Pros: hardworking, knowledgable, productive, friendly
Cons: understaffed, underfunded in an area of animal unfriendly community
