Join us at The Hive once a month for an open work space day benefiting local non-profits!

All proceeds from this month will benefit Young-Williams Animal Center in honor of National Adopt A Shelter Dog Month.
Young-Williams Animal Center began as the Knoxville/Knox County Animal Welfare Center that opened in January 2001. As the demand for animal services continued to grow, a group of concerned citizens including attorneys Lindsay Young and Mark Williams knew that a larger and more sophisticated facility was needed. They began a campaign to build the new center as a partnership with the city and county along with private citizens who shared a passion for animal welfare. The city and county provided funds for the kennel holding areas while a newly organized Board of Directors raised funds for the adoption floor and upgraded amenities throughout the building. As a result of these efforts, Young-Williams Animal Center moved into a new $3.7M facility in May 2004.
