We’re on the ground in Tennessee, helping affected companion animals and pet owners!

Our first-response team, American Humane Rescue, rushed to Gatlinburg, Tennessee to help provide relief to the animals and pet owners impacted by the devastating wildfires ravaging the state.

The team, along with two of its specialized emergency vehicles—made possible through the generous support of philanthropist Lois Pope and the Banfield Foundation—is on the ground helping companion animals and pet owners displaced in the wake of the deadly wildfires.

Responding to an official request for support from the Tennessee Department of Agriculture, American Humane Rescue will provide on-site assistance to the American Red Cross emergency shelter at the Rocky Top Sports Complex in East Tennessee throughout the course of the rescue mission.

Our team will provide updates on the rescue as the situation in Gatlinburg continues to unfold.
