The common goal of the folks of Overhome Animal Rescue (OAR) is to serve our community by sheltering animals in a humane environment, promote pet adoptions, and reduce pet overpopulation through spaying/neutering and education. Our vision is to create a safer, healthier community through responsible pet ownership in Hancock County.
Our 501c3 status gives us the opportunity to apply for grants and further assist with the spaying and neutering of animals in Hancock County.
We are conveniently located in downtown Sneedville. just one block down from Discount Auto. We still have much work to do to create a facility but are making great strides towards our goal.
To be a volunteer, it takes…

- Empathy, an ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and feel what they must feel
- Compassion, to truly care about making someone else’s life better
- Patience, because the process doesn’t always go as smoothly as it might
