This conceptual drawing of the proposed regional pet adoption center was distributed to Sullivan County Commissioners earlier this year. The new facility would replace the two aging ‘animal shelters’ currently operated by SBK, the joint animal control program of Sullivan County, Bluff City and Kingsport. PETworks has acquired the land for the facility on East Stone Drive, but Sullivan County has not allocated funding for it in the county’s budget plan. PETworks President Tom Parham said Kingsport may be forced to go back to the architect and right-size the building for just the city’s needs.
