A true friend to animals
Jesse C. Beesley, a local noted sculptor, was instrumental in forming the first humane society in Rutherford County in 1976. He inspired the formation of the Beesley Animal Clinic in 1992. Today the Beesley Animal Foundation operates Beesley Animal Clinic and is dedicated to decreasing the suffering caused by pet overpopulation.

The Beesley Animal Clinic and Beesley Animal Foundation actively promote responsible pet ownership with the welfare and humane treatment of all animals of utmost importance. However, we are not a humane shelter, nor are we set-up for pet rescue or rehoming. Any pets left in abandonment at the Beesley facility will be turned over to PAWS (Pet Adoption and Welfare Services) of Rutherford County, TN and we will assist as we can with finding and prosecuting those responsible.
If you’d like to make a monetary donation, Beesley Animal Foundation offers a few different options. Beesley Animal Foundation was established for the welfare of animals and is dedicated to decreasing the suffering caused by pet overpopulation through education.
