Emergency Procedures
When Fostering:

Guidelines:

In an emergency, MCFA will pay for your foster animal to be stabilized by either Dr. Gobble's office or the Monroe County Animal Hospital. If you cannot reach either of these offices, you are authorized to contact the "Midland Pet Emergency" or "Animal ER of Knoxville" listed below. Surgery or extraordinary procedures will NOT be covered by MCFA without the approval of the shelter director and a MCFA Board member. Please understand that you may not be reimbursed if you bring your foster animal to your own veterinarian.

When you are fostering and something happens with the animal you are fostering that you consider an emergency, please follow these procedures:

  • When you are fostering and something happens with the animal you are fostering that you consider an emergency, please follow these procedures: contact the Foster Coordinator, Cathy Barrett, 423-884-2515 (h) or 630-730-9729 (cell).
  • If Cathy is not available and this is a true emergency, call Dr. Gobble's office at 423-884-3646 or the Monroe County Animal Hospital at 423-337-7432.
