About Us

Who We Are

The Community Pet Center (CPC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are organized exclusively for service to the community through charitable, informational and educational activities. We assist with rescues, provide pet food for low-income families, sponsor low-cost spay/neuter programs and promote responsible pet ownership in Rutherford County.  We have launched a “Pet Education in the Classroom” program in the 3rd-grade classrooms and will be expanding it to other grades.  We house cats and kittens awaiting transport to out-of-state non-profit rescue organizations.


Our Goals:

  • Promote the reduction of the number of cats and dogs destroyed in Rutherford County through spay and neutering by reducing pet overpopulation and unnecessary destruction of healthy, adoptable animals.

  • Promote responsible pet ownership through education in Rutherford County.

  • Work with our partner rescue groups to save as many cats and dogs as we can.
