Paws vs Claws

by Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley

A HUGE congratulations out to our 

Top Dog winner Ken Parent

and to our 

Top Cat Winner Diana Condon!

They will each receive a Trophy and are 

now competing for the finale of VOTES!  

Have your friends TEXT 44-123 and go to the donation page to vote for PAWS or CLAWS!  

Remember your friends can still go to your pages and make donations until the end of June!

Please encourage your friends to VOTE!  All participants should continue to ask friends to join us starting today June 22 through Sunday June 28 and text to vote for Paws or Claws.

VOTING ends at Midnight June 28 and we will announce the answer to the question we've all been asking, which is the favorite PET?


Are you a cat person or a dog person?  Maybe you are both?

You see, cats and dogs have opposite personalities that can naturally lead to very different relationships with their humans. 

Cats tend to be more independent, cunning, and don’t particularly need your love and affection. 

Dogs are more social creatures, playful, friendly, loyal, and dare we say it, a little slow at times. Paws VS Claws is a fun way to support the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley through collective fundraising, and to find an answer to the question of the month, which is better, cats or dogs?

Are you in?  Please join us by clicking on the "I want to fundraise for this" button and follow the instructions to set up your web site.  Have fun telling your story, sharing your pets' pictures and videos, and asking your family and friends to donate.  OR make a donation to one of our participants' pages to support them as they help us in this fun competition between Paws and Claws!

Founded in 1885, the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley is the longest standing animal shelter in the State of Tennessee. A stand-alone 501c(3) limited admissions animal shelter, the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley receives no funding from national humane entities or government agencies; relying solely on private donations and grant funding.

Located in Knoxville, TN our organization is committed to our relationships with other shelters in the Tennessee Valley, by transferring animals at-risk for euthanasia, to our shelter for adoption.

Our Adoption Center offers dog and cat adoptions along with lifesaving programs including outreach, foster, volunteer, education and Pet Safety Net to help keep animals in their homes and out of area shelters.
