Founded in 2014, the mission and purpose of the SPCA of Bradley County TN is to advance the welfare of animals in the Bradley County TN community, to promote the No Kill Sheltering philosophy and to operate exclusively for a charitable purpose within the meaning of Section 501c3 of the Internal Revenue Code.

With funding from the Bradley County government, grants, and private donations, the SPCA of Bradley County works to place every animal in its care into permanent homes. We have a full-time director, a staff of approximately 8 employees, and several devoted volunteers. Every animal in our care receives age-appropriate vaccines, wormers, is spayed or neutered, and recieves a microchip with lifetime registration with adoption.   

Less than 10 percent of animals in our care are euthanized due to incurable physical ailments or behavioral issues. We couldn't do what we do without the support of our followers and Bradley County’s citizens standing together to show every cat’s and dog’s life matters. (Note: we are not associated with the National ASPCA or the Humane Society of the United States).


The mission of the SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) of Bradley County is to provide humane enforcement and sheltering for companion animals, under the No Kill Equation model.

The Adoption Center is located at 1570 Johnson Blvd. in Cleveland TN. We are open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 12 - 5 PM for adoptions.​ No surrender of strays from 4:30-5 pm. No exceptions.


The SPCA is not Animal Control.

To report animal abandonment, cruelty, or neglect in Bradley County please contact the non-emergency number for the Bradley County Sheriff's Office at (423) 728-7311 and Press option 6.
