About Our Shelter:

We are a progressive, municipal animal shelter serving the residents of the City of Elizabethton and all areas within Carter County, TN. We also have a non-profit arm, The Friends Group of ECCAS, where monetary donations are gladly accepted.

Our services include but are not limited to:

*Lost or stray, domestic (cat or dog) Animal Control pick-up and boarding. Animal must be confined.
*Boarding for pets (cat or dog) surrendered by their owners or care takers who can no longer care for them.
*Microchipping for adopted pets. Microchipping also offered to the public for their own personal pets at a nominal cost. Free scanning available at the shelter on any pet.
*We offer cruelty investigations, animal welfare checks, hoarding counseling and bite incident reports (quarantined as deemed necessary).
*We offer humane education presentations to community groups, schools and churches at no charge.
*We offer counseling of proper pet care or pet/human conflicts. We ask that every person looking to relinquish a pet to us receive this before making such a painful decision.

Come Meet our Pets:

We are open 12-4 Monday-Friday and 11-2 Saturday. There is no charge to bring in strays or your own dogs/cats but we don't always have space available. You should call first to see if there is space for your pets. We only have 25 dog kennels and 30 cat cages for the entire Carter County population.

Our Adoption Process:

Adoption costs are between $10-$55 depending on vetting. ALL animals are spayed or neutered prior to going home. If you live some distance away, please let us know so we can make sure you may only have to make one trip to take your new pet home. We also offer transport for an additional fee.

We also work with rescue and breed specific groups. Call or email for pull fees, transport & vetting package options.

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
