Pets at Our Shelter:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:We serve the cities of Oak Ridge and Clinton, and all of Anderson County, TN. We are continually striving to increase our live-release-rate. Please come down to the shelter and check out all our *highly adoptable* animals!
Hours Tuesday - Saturday, 11 am to 6 pm.
About Our Shelter:We are Animal Care and Control for the City of Oak Ridge. The entire staff to care for the shelter animals and answer calls for service consists of three Animal Control Officers and one part-time Shelter Assistant. We really appreciate the hard work and commitment of our Volunteers, who are here seven days a week trying to improve the quality of life for the dogs & cats (and occasional rabbit or ferret). Please consider filling out a Volunteer application if you've got a half-day free to walk dogs, bathe puppies, do laundry, or help socialize puppies, kittens, and train adult dogs.
Come Meet our Pets:Tuesday - Saturday, 11 am to 6 pm. The shelter is closed on state holidays.
Our Adoption Process:The adoption fee is $110. This includes the spay/neuter, microchip, first set of vaccinations including Rabies, deworming, and one flea treatment.
We ask that you give your landlord the pet deposit and obtain a permission letter before you take your pet home.
Animals under 2 lbs may have to return for surgery at a later date. Those under 12 weeks will have to return for a Rabies vaccine.
