About Beesley Animal Clinic:
Jesse C. Beesley, a local noted sculptor, was instrumental in forming the first humane society in Rutherford County in 1976. He inspired the formation of the spay/neuter clinic in 1992. Beesley is especially proud it was instrumental in establishing the requirement that all adopted animals be spayed/neutered and in support of that requirement we operate an affordable spay/neuter clinic where approximately 175 surgeries (both shelter adoptions and public pets) are performed each month. Since the opening of our clinic in May 1992 we have performed thousands of surgeries.
