Pet of the Week

Meet Dreah!  Dreah is a 7 1/2 yo spayed Pit Bull mix available for adoption at the SBK Animal Center in Kingsport.  Anyone who knows bully breeds knows that they are love-a-bull, kiss-a-bull, and hug-a-bull!  Dreah is no exception.  She is a shelter "orphan", as her family was moving and couldn't take her.  She is housebroken and loves kids.  Stop by the shelter located at 2141 Idle Hour Rd. to meet Dreah
and all the adoptable animals.  Don't shop; ADOPT!  Shelter animals make the best pets!

The Sullivan County Humane Society will hold a “Spay-ghetti Dinner” from 5 to 8 p.m., Thursday, at the Club at Ridgefields in Kingsport. The event will be held in conjunction with World Spay Day, an international campaign of The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International that promotes the life-saving benefits of spay/neuter.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased in advance at

Proceeds will go toward the Sullivan County Humane Society’s low-cost spay/neuter impact program (SNIP). SNIP is designed to promote responsible pet ownership and educate current pet owners of the importance of spaying and neutering by offering a low-cost alternative for those who could not otherwise afford the surgery. Recipients of a SNIP certificate can have their dog spayed or neutered for $30 or cat for $20 at participating veterinary clinics.

The program is open to anyone who lives or works in Sullivan County. Since its inception in late 2010, SNIP has provided financial assistance to more than 750 pets in the community.

“Spaying or neutering is the only effective means to curb the pet overpopulation problem within our community,” said John Kunysz, chairman of the Sullivan County Humane Society board of directors. “It saves lives while lessening the burden on our animal shelters and taxpayers.”

According to The Humane Society of the United States, between 6 and 8 million cats and dogs enter the nation’s shelter system each year. Shelters can’t save and support this huge number of accidental litters, strays and offspring of family pets. As a result, nearly 4 million are euthanized annually. That means one homeless pet is euthanized every eight seconds.

World Spay Day takes place on Feb. 28. Humane organizations, rescue groups, veterinary clinics and individuals across the United States and around the world are organizing reduced cost spay/neuter clinics, hosting fundraisers, and raising awareness of the importance of spaying and neutering.

The Sullivan County Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to advancing the humane treatment of animals, primarily companion pets, through adoption promotion, spay/neuter services, and animal welfare education.
