MISSION & HISTORY.

Provide a safe haven for homeless, abused and neglected animals in our community and advocate on their behalf.

Humane Educational Society was incorporated in 1910 by Ethel Hardy who was known for picking up stray cats and dogs while driving her carriage through the streets of Chattanooga.  Since then, we have grown to serve Hamilton County and take in four to five thousand homeless pets each year.  We are an open-door facility to residents of our service area that provides adoption services, animal protection, cruelty investigation, pet licenses, and essential care for homeless pets.  Humane Educational Society is committed to finding each and every treatable, adoptable, trainable animal in our facility a loving home to make Hamilton County a better place for pets.

How to support our programs & services.

Kindness

We strive to lead our community by example in providing outstanding, compassionate, healing care for animals in our guardianship. We treat each and every animal that comes through our facility with respect and dignity.

Advocacy

Animals are adopted to loving, responsible homes. Change starts with educating our community about animal welfare principles and what each of us can do to make this a better place for pets. 

Stewardship

Every effort is made to be excellent stewards for the animals and resources entrusted to us. Our resources will be allocated to best serve our mission and our community.
