Who We Are

Animal Awareness Association Of Overton County

Animal Awareness Association of Overton County is a Not-For-Profit 501(c) 3 tax deductible charitable organization. We are an Overton County No-Kill Association providing Rescue/Foster Care/Adoption and Re-homing for adoptable pets in the Overton County Region. Animal Awareness Association of Overton County or AAAOC, receives no city, county or state financial assistance, existing solely on private donations from those who love and want to help animals. (DONATIONS ARE GRATEFULLY ACCEPTED AT PO Box 72 Monroe, TN 38573) As a volunteer organization, AAAOC has no paid employees. We rely on public visibility, referrals from adopters and our highly respected reputation in the Overton County Region. Monetary donations are used to provide routine and catastrophic veterinary care, buy pet food, cat litter, and help keep our No-Kill AAAOC in existence!

*** IN THE NEWS *** It's hard to believe, but the AAAOC has outgrown its current foster care home in just about two years and we have no more room to accept any animals! That’s why we need you now more than ever! We desperately need new foster care families, money, supplies and an area to build or obtain a much needed shelter for the Overton County region. If you have property you would like to donate to this tax deductible charity, please call (931) 267-0682. Can you help us continue to help those who can't help themselves? Donating to Animal Awareness Association of Overton County is a wonderful way to honor or remember a pet or human loved one, which in turn allows us to help other pets. Right now is the perfect time to donate. Can you help us keep Overton County's No-Kill Association running? (DONATIONS ARE GRATEFULLY ACCEPTED AT PO Box 72 Monroe, TN 38573) You can make a donation to sponsor an animal living in residence in our foster care program and one day hopefully our shelter. Please do not miss helping AAAOC by saving all of your aluminum cans, donating them to help raise much needed funds. If you have any other items to donate call (931) 267-0682 for arrangements and directions. Want to help?? Want to find out more about us?? All are welcome to come to our monthly meeting held at Kelly Williams's Office on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 5:00 pm. Please come! -> VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES ARE AVAILABLE AND SO NEEDED THROUGH AAAOC. Can you spare a few hours each week or month?

Adopting a friend

NOTE: Animal Awareness Association of Overton County pets offered for adoption have already been vet examined and vets vaccinated, have personalized veterinary papers, and are spayed/neutered before reaching 6 months of age in almost every case.

Thanks to Upchurch Animal Clinic who participates with AAAOC in providing a comprehensive low cost veterinary based spay-neuter/vaccination program.

 Each AAAOC pet comes with a veterinary examination, current vet vaccinations, fecal exam and deworming, and spay/neutering!! All pets are on flea/tick control and dogs are on heart worm prevention. .......

 If you are interested in becoming a Foster Care Provider, or AAAOC Volunteer, please call us at 931 267-0682,

Email us at aaaofovertoncounty@yahoo.com  and together we will get started and make a difference!

Adopters are asked to complete a short adoption contract. This eliminates "whim" adoptions and provides an opportunity to be sure you get the right pet for your situation.

 *** All of our pets have current vaccinations, have been examined by our veterinarian, have been de-wormed, and have been spayed or neutered. (Puppies and kittens are spayed/neutered when old enough. This is included in their adoption fee.) Cats and dogs are on flea and tick prevention. Dogs are on heartworm prevention. Any needed veterinary care has been done prior to being offered for adoption. All animals are available for the low cost adoption fee of only $100.00 for Female Dogs & $75.00 for Male Dogs and $75.00 for Female Cats & $50.00 for Male Cats! *** Most of our Foster Care pets have been working on becoming socialized, their personalities and histories known to the Foster Care Home, so adopters can be at ease of getting the right match. Trying to social pets, careful screening, and comprehensive veterinary care BEFORE adoption, contributes to AAAOC’s highly successful adoption rates. In the rare event the pet you adopt does not work out, AAAOC will happily take the pet back; however the “adoption fee” is not refundable. Please help fund programs by the buying "animal friendly" license plates.
