The Bridge Home No Kill Animal Rescue is dedicated to the welfare of unwanted and abandoned animals. We are a non-profit organization funded entirely by membership dues and private donations and staffed by volunteers. We provide care and compassion for homeless cats and dogs until they are adopted into a loving home. Our goals are to educate, control over-population through spaying and neutering, and provide rescue for animals in need.
Keep your pet's vaccinations current. Tennessee state law requires an annual rabies vaccination for pets.
Obey the leash law. Not only is it illegal for pets to roam free outside of your property, there is a much greater risk of injury or even death for them.
Report incidents of animal neglect or cruelty. Remember animals have no voice, therefore they have no choice.
If you are interested in joining us to help find homes for all of these lovely animals, we would love to have you. If you could open your heart and your home to one of these homeless animals and help rehabilitate them by socializing and giving lots of love, please contact Regina Isenberg, President, at (423) 239-5237.
You can become a foster family for a homeless pet.
Help us transport dogs and cats to and from the Vet's office and for spaying and neutering.
Volunteers ages 14+ are needed Some duties will include showing the animals to possible adopters, taking the dog for short walks to stretch their legs out of the kennels, etc.
Donate the cost for a Spay or Neuter.
Donate the cost of grooming to a homeless cat or dog.

We are always working toward finding forever homes for these precious guys. We are currently working out of the homes of our generous volunteers who are gracious enough to foster these animals until we can find them a Forever Home! They just need an opportunity to be able to show how much love they can give in return for being adopted.
We need volunteers, people to help contribute either money donations or labor. Regina has put many years of hard work into saving the lives of animals and her dream of building a shelter to house homeless animals has come true. Please come visit her shelter at 2061 Highway 75 in Blountville. You can now make Donations through our Paypal. We would like to thank everyone for their continued support!! We could not do what we do without the support of our community. So please keep the donations coming in and, as always, we need Volunteers & Foster Parents.
If animals are spayed at 6 months of age or older, it will reduce the risk of cancer and prostate disease. Also, it helps to avoid aggression problems in these animals. A female cat that is not sterilized will come into heat every 3 weeks for 4-5 days. Neutered males focus their attention on staying close to their families and not roaming for a mate, which can result in injury. The procedure is a common surgery with minimal care required afterwards. Your pet can resume normal behavior in a couple of days. Spaying and neutering not only helps animals to live longer and healthier lives, it also prevents unwanted litters of cats or dogs. Millions of cats and dogs of all breeds are euthanized annually or suffer as strays. Many strays die painfully by starvation, disease, freezing to death or hit by cars. This needless suffering can be prevented if responsible pet owners have their pets spayed or neutered.
We are always thankful for your gracious gifts of dog and cat food, collars,leashes, cat and dog treats, stamps, kitten and puppy food, bleach and detergent. And of course, any monetary gifts are most welcome.
Also, we would appreciate any donation of Purina weight circles off catfood and dogfood bags. These can be traded in for discounts on food for our homeless fostered animals. Also, we can use these weight circles in exchange for veterinary care for these animals. You can drop them in the mail to us or Stop by 2061 Highway 75 in Blountville. We are at Pet Smart on Saturdays from 1-4 for adoption. We need volunteers to help on Saturdays, if interested please stop by. .
We also collect aluminum cans that can be dropped off in a bin located in the parking lot of Companion Animal Hospital in Colonial Heights. All cans and other aluminum products need to be in a secure bag (grocery or garbage bag) for pickup. You can also drop cans off at 2061 Highway 75 in Blountville.
