Target: Cindy Klann, Monroe County Animal Shelter

Goal: Applaud animal shelter for transporting adoptable dogs to less-croweded shelters to get them adopted

The Monroe County Animal Shelter in Tennessee has partnered with a program to launch a guaranteed way for dogs to be adopted. Applaud the shelter for transporting these dogs in need of a loving home from crowded shelters to less-crowded ones where they are more likely to be adopted.

In 2004, concerned communities in Tennessee who recognized the need for an animal welfare center created the Monroe County Animal Shelter. The Madisonville shelter is now one of the latest animal shelters to partake in the PetSmart Charities Rescue Wagon program. Animal shelters involved in the program help move dogs and puppies to animal shelters in locations that usually have fewer pets waiting to be given a home. Reports show that millions of dogs end up in animal shelters and more than half of those pets never find homes. The goal of this program is to find loving homes for these pets.

Every year, 400,000 pets are saved through the PetSmart Charities program. In 2013, the program granted $34 million dollars to thousands of animal welfare groups. If more animal shelters joined this cause, more animals would end up in loving homes. Along with finding homes for the dogs, PetSmart Charities also sets up adoption events and pet rescue programs, and supports spaying and neutering efforts.

Please sign this petition to thank the Monroe County Animal Shelter for partnering with PetSmart Charities Rescue Wagon Program to help animals find long-lasting homes.


Dear Ms. Klann,

Millions of animals end up in animal shelters every year. Sadly, over half the number of those animals will remain homeless for the rest of their lives. Thanks to the PetSmart Charities Rescue Wagon program, more dogs are being adopted and given to loving homes.

It is great that your animal shelter has decided to join this program. Your participation in the Rescue Wagon program will make such a huge difference for animals in Tennessee. Sending animals to less-impacted shelters will greatly affect their adoption chances. The proven success of this program shows the dedication of all of the animal shelters and rescue groups involved.

If more animal shelters and rescue organizations could join this program, these adoptable dogs and puppies will be able to live out happier lives. Thank you for teaming up with PetSmart Charities to help dogs and puppies find loving homes.

    Thank you for doing what you can to help the “least of these “find forever loving responsible new homes for all the animals you take into your shelter.
    I thank you from the very bottom of my heart & can’t thank you enough. Again on behalf of all those homeless animals, THANK YOU !

  2. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

  3. Thank you so much for your efforts. Keep up the good work

  4. People caused this and we need to take the steps to put an end to this humanely. Had we shown any intelligence, common sense, forethought, reigned in our greed, apathy, laziness by simply spaying/neutering, stop the breeding, puppy mills and thinking animals are throwaways, a way to make a dollar, this situation would never have occurred. Now we realized and yet its still going on.
