(Check-in starts at 7am until ride-time)

The Greenback Tour de PPAW will benefit our nonprofit PPAW Spay/Neuter Clinic, the cornerstone of animal welfare in East Tennessee. Our bike ride will not only raise money to support our clinic, but will treat riders to some of the most beautiful scenery East Tennessee has to offer...with frequent mountain and lake views.

We have rides for everyone, from semi-grueling to gentle rolling hills and country lanes.

Did You Know?

Each day 10,000 humans are born in the U.S. - and each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are born. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all the animals. As a result. Millions of healthy, loving cats & dogs, kittens & puppies face early deaths as a form of animal control. Others are left to fend for themselves against automobiles, the elements, animals and cruel humans. What can you do to stop the suffering? Spay and neuter your pets! Work with SpayUSA and together we can make a difference.

An unspayed female cat, her mate and all of their offspring, producing 2 litters per year, with 2.8 surviving kittens per litter can total:

  • 7 years: 370,092
  • 8 years: 2,072,514
  • 9 years: 11,606,077
An unspayed female dog, her mate and all of their puppies and their puppies' puppies, if none are ever neutered or spayed, add up to:

Spay/Neuter Myths vs. Facts

Last year, over 15 million cats and dogs were killed in animal shelters and pounds in the United States, and this figure does not include the many pets who were thrown out of cars, left by the side of the road, or dropped in woods and fields. And despite all this, we can't seem to kill the myths that are perpetuating their destruction. Which of these myths do you still believe?
