A New Year’s resolution is a commitment that a person makes towards one or more personal goals, projects, or habit reform. A key part of a New Year’s resolution that sets it apart from other resolutions is that it is made in anticipation of the New Year and new beginnings. People who commit to a New Year’s resolution usually plan to do so for the entire following year. This change in lifestyle is generally interpreted as beneficial.

We asked our adoptable pets to make their own New Years Resolutions. They all said their resolution would be to be the best dog or cat they could be in a “furever” house in 2022. We want to share four of our adoptable dogs and cats with their New Years photo in this week’s Animal Talk. Call our staff at 423-639-4771 for more information from noon to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday if you are interested in adopting.

Our New Year’s resolution is to continue to help our community reduce the stray dog ​​and cat population by supporting and encouraging spaying and finding homes for homeless animals.

Thank you very much for supporting our Trim A Tree fundraiser. We are continuing this fundraiser into the New Year 2022, so send your donation. We also want to remind everyone to consider making a tax-free year-end donation to help the Greeneville-Greene County Humane Society care for homeless dogs and cats in need. You can donate in person at the Adoption Center at 950 Hal Henard Road, by mail to PO Box 792, Greeneville, TN 37744, or online at gchumanesociety.com

The Greeneville-Greene County Humane Society will be closed for New Years holidays until Monday and reopen on Tuesday. Our staff will come and take care of our dogs and cats while we are closed and make sure they each receive lots of love and attention.

Thank you for a great year 2021 from all of us at the Greeneville Greene County Humane Society. With the support of our community, we are certain that 2022 will be an even better year for all the dogs and cats at the Adoption Center!
