ROGERSVILLE — The Hawkins Co. Humane Society is at overflow capacity, with an abundance of dogs that would just love to find “forever” homes, many of which have been at the local animal shelter for a very long time.

“To help with our overflow, we are continuing our adoption special of $40 for dogs (not puppies) and $30 for cats,” a staff member said. “Please come visit our shelter and consider adopting a lifetime companion. Seven of our beloved dogs are featured here.”

“We are a ‘no kill’ facility and work hard to save our Hawkins County animal lives by transitioning to good homes,” the spokesperson said. “If you want a link about our animals please point to our Facebook site and the PetFinder link to our dogs and cats.”

The shelter’s Facebook page may be accessed at —; or at PetFinder —

The Shelter is located at 5180 US 11W, just north of Rogersville, and persons are welcome to drop by during business hours to visit with the animals.

Monetary donations may be sent by U.S. Mail to: PO Box 217, Rogersville, TN 37857.

Donations of cleaning items, animal bedding, cat litter, pet food and other items, as well as volunteers’ time, are also needed.
