Your Donation Doubled Through April 15th
The Humane Educational Society has received an anonymous matching donor gift. This gift will be matched up to $20,000 until April 15th. Donations made towards a new cargo van for the Humane Educational Society are the only donations that will be matched. Reaching our goal of getting a new cargo van will mean the Humane Educational Society will have the ability to get more animals to adoption events and increase their chances of finding their forever homes. This will also enable HES to have more animals spayed or neutered, transfer animals to shelters where homes await them upon arrival, and transfer animals out of high kill shelters to HES when extra room is available.

Help us Enrich Their Lives..
If you ask a dog owner what a Kong is, most likely they will reply that it is a toy for dogs, not an over-sized Gorilla who wreaks havoc on Manhattan. The Kong has become one of the most well known dog toys and for good reason. Made of hard rubber, it is very durable.
The Kong Company offers second hand Kongs for 85% less than the retail value for shelters! At such an amazingly low price, you can buy several with just $10 or $20 dollars! Please help us give them a better life while here at the shelter.... Donate towards the purchase of a Kong today!!
Donate a Kuranda bed and bring comfort to a homeless pet (or two) for years! By donating a Kuranda bed to a homeless dog, you will provide a dry, soft, comfortable place for her to sleep during her time at our shelter.
Donate a bed in your name, or send one as a gift in the name of your sweetheart, friend or family member. The beds are sent directly to the shelter in the donor's name at a discount of about 30%! Read more

Saturday, May 9th at Bear Trace Golf Course for our second annual Drives for Lives golf tournament.
Shot gun start will begin at 8:00 am sharp; arrive early for registration and complimentary breakfast. Participants will receive a gift bag at registration as well as great prizes for the top teams and players. Bring extra cash to purchase those important mulligans, and a beverage from the HES cart.
Expect lots of fun competitions throughout the course. Lunch will be provided while we tally each team's scores. Fantastic prizes to follow!
Bear Trace Golf Course is located approximately 20 minutes north of downtown Chattanooga, the Bear Trace at Harrison Bay is surrounded by both water and heavily wooded land, making an ideal setting for the course. Referred to as "the best natural piece of land for a golf course," the Bear Trace at Harrison Bay features Bermuda fairways lined with soaring pine and hardwood trees.
Although water touches 12 fairways, there is more than sufficient room to hit safely. Most greens are open in front, which makes the course more user-friendly for high-handicap players and allows run-up shots. Fairway and green side bunkers are designed in the traditional Nicklaus fashion and add notable character to the overall integrity of the course. Like other courses in the collection, the emphasis on playability is clearly evident. We hope to see you there!
