Considering the overpopulation of unwanted and homeless pets in East Tennessee, there is a great need for community members to support their local animal shelter. During the month of January, helping a homeless animal has never been easier.

The Orangery, Knoxville’s premier fine dining restaurant specializing in French and international cuisine and the recipient of AAA’s prestigious Four Diamond Award designation for the fifth consecutive year, is joining forces with Young-Williams Animal Center to help animals in the community. On Monday nights at The Orangery, you can enjoy a delicious American Kobe Burger for only $10, and the restaurant will donate $5 of the proceeds to benefit Young-Williams Animal Center.

As an open-intake shelter serving Knox County and the City of Knoxville, Young-Williams took in approximately 15,000 unwanted or stray animals last year. Community members can help provide funding for sheltering, veterinary care, adoption and other services offered at the animal center by dining at The Orangery on Monday nights in January.

To help our furry friends in the Knoxville community, make a reservation for Monday night at The Orangery by calling 865-588-2964. For more information about The Orangery, visit To learn more about Young-Williams Animal Center, visit or check out Young-Williams Animal Center on Facebook.
