About Us

Pet Placement Center is a small, private adoption agency and Chattanooga's oldest no-kill animal shelter. All operating funds come from donations, adoption fees, and fundraising projects. We receive no agency funding or government assistance.

Our Mission

We strive to reduce animal suffering by promoting diligent animal care through education and example; to find responsible homes for animals in need; to promote spaying or neutering to reduce overpopulation; to emphasize responsible guardianship.
