The Bridge Home has an ongoing aluminum can collection in front of the shelter at 2061 Hwy 75 in Blountville, TN 37617 and a second aluminum can collection site at Airworks Heating and Cooling, 5633 Memorial Blvd Kingsport. The cans are collected by a volunteer and the money from the aluminum goes towards badly needed food and supplies for the animals.

Being a non profit the shelter is funded entirely by membership dues and private donations. They always need volunteers or monetary donations.

Photo: 3 sweet dogs were abandoned to the shelter. We have Hershey who is 15 and Honey who is 14 and Athena who is 11 years old. These are the sweetest dogs and unfortunately after being great pets they were given up because their parents had to move. We are looking for some extraordinary pet parents to give these cuties dignity and love in their twilight years. This is Athena. Need to be adopted together deeply bonded!
