Local business donating to animal shelter in need


BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. - Adoption fees are now half off until Christmas at the Blountville Animal Shelter.

The lowered fee is thanks to one local business owner with a big heart.

Her name is Debbie Noel.

She's the owner of Rocky Top Campground in Blountville.

She's been donating to the Blountville Animal Shelter since she moved to the area six years ago.

"I figured Kingsport has enough big businesses in town-- there's no reason why other businesses couldn't support that shelter," Noel explained. "The Blountville shelter doesn't have a lot of big businesses around it."

She donates food, cleaning supplies, and anything else the shelter needs.

"I just want to keep doing as much as I can to help them. I like to go over there and take the dogs outside and play with them every once and a while when I get the time to do that," said Noel.

Up until now, she had been donating anonymously.

But she's hoping if other small businesses see her helping, they'll step up too.

"It's good to know that our community is there, and hopefully this will help get some other people involved," said Brandi Perky, the shelter's Assistant Manager.

Noel also adopted her own pup from the shelter earlier this year.

If you would like to help out the shelter, here's a list of items Perky said they need:



-Dry food (puppy, adult, GRAIN FREE)

-Flea medication (for all ages)

-Clip on water bowls



-Purina Cat Chow (complete formula preferred, but any will do)
