Easy’s Dog Shelter is a dog rescue operation in Grundy County, TN
Easy's - Who are we?
We work closely with the county sheriff and local police chief in Tracy City and the surrounding area who execute dog rescue operations in the county. Some animals do not need to be rescued - owners willingly surrender them over to us for a number of reasons, the primary reason being the welfare of the animals.
Our purpose is to relieve the discomfort, pain and hunger of these animals and to find them a home where their care is a priority. Once these animals are in our care, we place them in a comfortable, clean environment. The animals are carefully inspected for parasites and treated. Once they are vetted, receive their vaccines, and are spayed or neutered, we arrange a veterinarian to provide validated paperwork of their care. Their pictures and information are put up on our site and on other adoption agencies, and together these organizations work to find the animals homes. All our dogs have a fee associated with their adoption to help cover this care, but it’s still less expensive than buying a dog from a breeder and paying for their shots as an owner.
The operation is run by Andy Wostal, who has accepted the task of providing for their care. He receives calls almost daily to pick up dogs and puppies. After these animals are socialized, he learns their personalities and unique ways, and writes up their biographies so you can get to know them as well.
Because of the number of dogs that need to be rescued, the shelter has a constant need for blankets, sheets, towels, old couch cushions, foam pillows, straw, unused dog houses, dog food and puppy chow, and monetary donations. This is especially helpful in the winter or in the nursery. Any of these things that you can donate would be greatly appreciated. Contact us or message us on Facebook to arrange a donation.
All shots are up-to-date unless it says specifically per dog.
We de-worm our dogs as we get them, and flea and tick medicine is given as recommended.
