McKamey Animal Center requests vacation cards for the 2 longest residents

McKamey Animal Center is asking animal lovers in Chattanooga and beyond to consider their two longest residents this year when sending holiday cards to friends and family, in an effort to help them find new homes for the holidays.

In a social media post shared early Friday morning, MAC said it was a holiday wish for Jane and Crest, the shelter’s oldest residents. “Crest and Jane are our two longest-serving residents at the MAC. To date, Crest has been here for 337 days and Jane for 301 days. They are both great dogs that have been neglected for far too long. This year, for the holiday season, we’re asking folks in the Chattanooga area and beyond for greeting cards to decorate their kennels, and maybe in the process, we’ll find them both their furry homes.

Greeting cards can be mailed to: McKamey Animal Center, ATTN: Jane or Crest, 4500 N. Access Rd., Chattanooga, TN 37405.

Crest is an 8 year old mixed breed dog who is losing his sight – he likes to use his mouth to smell which can be scary for some. He’s what the shelter calls a real “couch potato” and would love a home to laze around in. Jane is 3 years old and one of the staff favourites. She loves to run and play, while showing off her zooms! She likes all the attention to be on her, so she should be the only dog ​​in her household.

Both animals are included as part of MAC’s December adoption special. Throughout the month, attendees can choose a decoration from the special holiday tree for a chance at reduced adoption fees, exclusive discounts, and free pet items. Entrants can even find the lucky ornament that features free adoption. Both animals are also available for MAC’s upcoming Santa Paws Delivery special.

To learn more about these two dogs, or any animal available for adoption at the McKamey Animal Center, visit or call 305-6514.

MAC adopters are no longer required to make an appointment to come meet adoptable animals, but those wishing to schedule an appointment or get more information should visit the MAC website at or call the adoptions team at 305-6514. Everyone entering the shelter must wear a mask due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.
