Sevier County Humane Society; Old Mill Winery
A local, non-profit animal shelter located in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains, the Sevier County Humane Society, helps find abandoned and unwanted pets a new home with loving families. Operating off Gnatty Branch Rd, the shelter also provides reasonably priced spay and neuter programs as well as fostering programs. The Old Mill Winery plans to release a special label just for the shelter in October of 2016 named Wags & Whiskers. $1 per bottle sold will be donated directly to the shelter in an effort to help raise funds for a new, updated facility.
