About Us


Coffee County Humane Society has a board elected by the membership. Officers are selected from the Board. Current Board members and officers are: Sally Berryman – Co-president, Hazel Fannin, Co-President and Treasurer, Roy Phelps – Vice President, Virginia Meyer – Secretary; Board Members: Jane Austin, Debbie Burns, Belynda Mayes, Chase McCullough, Anna Niggeler.

Coffee County Humane Society does not have a shelter or office, but has a small network of foster homes. There are five main programs of service to the community:

1. Spay/neuter and Emergency Vet Care for Pets of Low Income Families. An application for service is required and may be obtained by calling (931) 728-0903 or downloading the spay/neuter, vetcare application. Families are eligible for financial assistance if their income is no more than 150% of the federal poverty level, which is approximately $35,000 for a family of four. Persons may also receive help for stray animals, without meeting the income restriction, especially if they are rescuing or taking care of a large number of homeless animals. The goal is to spay/neuter as many animals as possible to address the enormous problem of pet over population. Veterinarians are compensated for their service and their cooperation makes this program possible. Routine vet care is not funded but CCHS will help as funds allow in case of life-threatening illness or injury of the pet.

2. Foster and adoption program. CCHS has a small number of foster homes for dogs, cats, and horses. Foster and Adoptive Homes are always needed. Application for both may be downloaded. CCHS pays the expenses for foster animals. These programs are overseen by a foster/adoption coordinator. Coffee County Humane Society is an approved adoption partner with both Petco and Petsmart and holds monthly adoption events at Petco Murfreesboro and Petsmart Tullahoma, usually on a Saturday.  CCHS also has cats for adoption in the in-store cat room at Petsmart Tullahoma.

3. Pet Food Distribution. CCHS donates pet food monthly to Good Samaritan Food Pantry in Tullahoma and individual families in Manchester and Tullahoma as well as county residents, are helped directly on an emergency basis as funds allow.  Any donations of pet food are appreciated and may be left for CCHS at Coffee Café in Manchester between 10am and 2pm, any day except Monday.  Pickup may be arranged also by calling 931-728-0903.  CCHS appreciates the regular donations of pet food made by Walmart Manchester and Food Lion in Manchester and Tullahoma as well as periodic pet food donations from Greatergood.org, Freekibble.com, and the Halo Pet Food Company.

4. Trap/Neuter/Release of Feral Cats. CCHS has live traps and will help trap, spay/neuter, and return cats to colonies who have a caretaker feeding them. This is vitally important to stabilize numbers and help prevent the spread of disease. Cats are given rabies shots at the time of surgery and cats who appear ill are tested for Feline Leukemia/Feline AIDS (FIV), which are communicable diseases.

5. Education and outreach to schools and the community. CCHS is available to speak to schools and community groups about the organization and its programs, as well as humane treatment of animals and responsible pet ownership.

Way to go DOBT!! Great work!

WOW! What A Week

We get so busy sometimes that we forget to catch up our followers on how many dogs are actually saved each week so.....Here are just a few photos of the dogs that made it out of the shelter happy and alive this past week. A special thank you to Tractor Supply of Manchester for letting us bring adoptables to their store on Saturday. From that event alone SEVEN dogs found new homes.
Our thank you for saving our a**es award this week goes to our rescue friend Karen Smith Clark for taking THREE pregnant dogs from the shelter Saturday afternoon. All three of these dogs will never have another litter of puppies and all the babies born will be spayed and neutered and never become homeless unwanted pets.
We ask for donations last week and we were able to raise a bit over half of what we needed to neuter three more dogs. We will set at least one neuter appointment this week and hopefully with a little more help be able to do all three dogs in the near future. We appreciate each and every one of our friends and followers who continue to share and support our efforts.
