About Us

ERAS adopted the "No Kill Equation" as its operational policy in February of 2013. NO healthy, treatable, adoptable animals in its custody are euthanized. ERAS is a "No Kill" shelter.

ERAS is a full spectrum animal control services unit. The Animal Services Division handles all animal-related issues within the City limits of East Ridge, TN; including humane law enforcement and cruelty investigations, stray and/ or injured animals, dangerous animals, and limited nuisance wildlife control. ERAS also maintains and operates the City of East Ridge Animal Shelter, which provides safe housing and humane care for stray and unwanted companion animals. Adoptions are available.
