Welcome to SPA Veterinary Well Care Center
Your Veterinarian in Gallatin TN

Call us at (615) 451-7342

Safe Place for Animals is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that helps thousands of animals every year. We opened our first shelter in November of 2008 and have been open to the public every day since (yes even holidays!) We are run by a wonderful group of volunteers that care for the roughly 120 animals in our facility.

We rely on donations from compassionate and caring animal friends...we receive no government financial assistance. We have a low cost grooming and lost cost animal wellness clinic all under one roof with our shelter.

We are committed to providing the best care for animals in Sumner County while also ensuring a safer community by providing education on responsible pet ownership.

Voted Best Non-Profit in Sumner County since 2010.

Our products and services

  • Low cost wellness clinic for preventive care as well as a wide variety of treatments for various illnesses.
  • Low cost grooming to keep your pet looking and feeling wonderful.
  • Animal care and placement for hundreds of wonderful homeless pets.

The SPA Community Center for People & Pets is Here!

We are now in our new facility: 905 Mallard Dr., Gallatin, TN 37066

Safe Place for Animals opened in 2008 and has served the community and its animals 7 days a week, 365 days a year ever since. It is the mission of Safe Place for Animals to provide the best care and temporary housing for unwanted animals, while trying to find them the best forever home possible. It is also the mission of SPA to educate the public on responsible pet ownership, promote spay/neuter and provide unique animal services to the community. We have helped over 6000 animals in the past 8 years with a 95% volunteer run staff and no government or local funding. Our dream is to create a facility that offers love and security to homeless animals and offers unique, professional and low cost services to the public and its pets.

And that dream has now been realized! With the generosity of our wonderful supporters we were able to raise enough money to purchase 4 acres of land and a building off of Belvedere Drive in Gallatin!

  • Dr.
    Natasha Jacobs

    Dr. Jacobs has been an animal lover from a very early age. Her desire to work with animals and help care for them led her to volunteer at the local shelter and start helping out at a small animal vet hospital in high school. Her love for veterinary medicine became clear and she graduated with her vet degree from the University of Tennessee in 2004. While in vet school, her interests included dermatology, parasitology, and cats. After graduation, she joined the largest privately owned veterinary hospital in the world. Her interests included rehabilitation, internal medicine, pocket pet care, and ultrasound. Through hard work, she became a chief of staff. In 2011, she started a small animal mobile service focusing on preventative care and rehabilitation. In 2014, she completed her CCRP (Certified Canine Rehabilitaion Practionioner) from the University of Tennessee, and started helping out at a small animal rehabilitation practice in Charlotte, NC. In July 2016, Dr. Jacobs moved to the Gallatin area to be closer to her family and joined SPA. Dr. Jacobs loves to spend her free time with her dog, a lab-chow named Reznor. He is a retired blood donor and reading dog.

  • "Wow! Thanks to all the staff at Anderson Vet Clinic. I feel like you all truly love what you do! My kitty, Lola and I always have such a pleasant experience when we come in. Fortunately, it’s usually just for a check-up, but I would not leave Lola in anyone else’s hands but yours. Thank you for your caring commitment!"
