Our mission is to enforce the laws of Lauderdale County and control the population of unwanted animals. We provide temporary shelter for stray, abandoned, and surrendered animals with the purpose of finding their owners or adopting them out to new homes. With the goal in mind to decrease our unwanted pet population, the animal shelter educates the public on proper pet ownership along with promoting spaying and neutering their pets.

We believe every adoption counts and every pet matters.

Hours of Operation: Monday-Friday 8:00am-5:00pm, Closed all major holidays
Adoptions Hours:  9:30-11:30 & 1:30-4:30
Adoption fees: Cats $40 |  Dogs $60 |  Dogs 50lbs or more $75
