Cari Campbell

Animal Shelter Director Cari Campbell moved to our wonderful City of Brownsville in 1989 from California. Cari has 3 daughters that were born and raised in Brownsville. Cari’s youngest daughter Riley started out as a volunteer at the shelter while attending High School. While volunteering, Riley asked her mother to join her at the shelter. Cari then became a volunteer herself and fell in love with everything she was doing. As time went on, Cari became a full time employee on November 6, 2019 and the became the Director we know today. Cari is very passionate about what she does. If there’s an animal in need she makes it her priority to do whatever she can to help. We all know animals don’t have a voice, so Cari feels it’s her duty to be that voice for them. Most people can’t handle what the shelter sees on a daily basis, so Cari takes her job very seriously. At the end of the day, knowing she saved a life, its all worth it.

Brownsville Animal Shelter

Healthy adoptable puppies are given their first shots and worm medicine when they are brought to the shelter. All cats and kittens are kept inside the shelter facility.

The shelter offers an adoption program to all qualified applicants. To adopt a pet, persons must fill out an application, pay a fee and sign an agreement that they will have the pet spayed or neutered.

Brownsville-Haywood County Humane Society

The Brownsville- Haywood County Humane Society has partnered with the local animal shelter since1999. As a partner, society members through donations have provided products, fencing, medicine and care to the animals and information to Haywood County citizens concerning the lost and surrendered dogs and cats that live at our shelter.

Examples of Humane Society contributions are: a $5,000 fence that allows the animals to enjoy the outside; pallets for the inside cages and stainless steel bowls; medicine, shots, heartworm testing for adoptable animals; dog houses at the shelter (and also those that need protection for their pets elsewhere); a $500 galvanized steel tub to bathe the animals; advertising in the local paper and on the radio highlighting animal adoptions; coordinating with breed specific rescue groups to save animals at the shelter; provide foster homes and dog food for those kind enough to open their homes for the animals.

To contact board members for any questions concerning the Humane Society or to donate to the animals, please call Alice Nunn, 548-4158 or Kim Raines c/o The Brownsville- Haywood Co. Humane Society, P. O. Box 565, Brownsville, TN 38012.

Thanks to the animal rescuers for their help.
