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, low cost spay /neuter and safe animal pick up and after hour drop off services.

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!

The new facility will offer the following:

  • State of the art indoor/outdoor suites for the dogs and cats
  • Indoor play areas and adoption meet and greet areas
  • Outdoor play areas
  • A full low cost veterinary clinic capable of spay/neuter and other surgeries
  • Low cost grooming clinic
  • Food bank for families that need a little assistance in caring for their pets
  • An information and education area
  • Phase 2 of the community center will offer boarding, coffee shop and dog park!

This will be a facility unlike any other in the Sumner County area, but we need your help!

There are many opportunities to help from making a general donation to buying a suite or other area of the shelter. Simply pick the donate button below for the option you are able to help with. Any of the rooms/areas or items purchased will have a plaque with donors name(s).
