Our mission is to reduce the state surplus of homeless cats and dogs by taking a proactive approach and promoting humane education throughout the state, thus improving the lives of all companion animals in Tennessee.
In 2005, CAIT became an official outreach
program of the University of Tennessee College
of Veterinary Medicine. What began as a grass
roots initiative to give a voice to those with
concerns for companion animal welfare has
grown into a statewide program impacting lives
of companion animals in Tennessee and beyond.
CAIT brings communities together to find solutions
to issues impacting them such as hoarding, dog
fighting, puppy mills and other forms of animal
abuse. By educating animal shelters on how to
better care for the animals in their facilities, more
animals are available for adoption and can be
placed in their forever homes, thus reducing the
numbers of animals euthanized each year.
