Mission Statement

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


We are always looking for new volunteers! See currently available opportunities at

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.
