About Our Shelter:

The Animal Control Division of the Public Works Department maintains the City of Tullahoma animal shelter and is responsible for enforcing the animal control laws within the city. This division strives to reunite lost dogs with their families and to place unclaimed dogs in good homes. We were awarded the 2004 Municipal Achievement Award for Excellence in Animal Control based on our adoption program.

Our Adoption Process:

The City Shelter Has Many Dogs Who Need Families.

The Tullahoma Animal Shelter always has a great variety of dogs to choose from for adoption. The $10.00 adoption fee is minimal when compared to the years of joy a pet can offer your family. State law also requires a $25.00 deposit, refundable upon proof that the adopted pet has been neutered or spayed. Microchip identification is now available to all dogs adopted from the shelter. For a $10 or greater donation, you will receive a microchip to be implanted for free by Dr. Amy Nickels at the Pet Medical Center in Tullahoma. Pet alert fire decals are also available for a small donation. For more details, contact Teresa at 454-9580 or animalcontrol@tullahoma-tn.com.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
